Must Visit Trails Around Atlanta

Hiking, Running/Walking Trails, and All Things Outdoors Around Atlanta


Beyond peaches and Coca-Cola, Georgia is known for its beautiful state parks and nature trails. When the great outdoors calls, make a day of it or plan for a morning adventure spent among the trees and mountains by visiting some of our favorite natural spots:


Indian Seats At Sawnee – A fun and breezy trail up to the historic rocks that are shaped as seats that overlook the beautiful trees and scenery.


Amicolala Falls – If you enjoy the stair master, this one is for you. It really is fun and the most beautiful with the view of the falls.


Ettowah River Park – A staple for a great walk/run for those who reside in Canton, with routes long enough to train for a half marathon!


Old Rope Mill – Woodstock locals’ favorite date spot. There’s an old railroad that is wonderful for pictures!


Piedmont Park – Bring your friends, a football, a frisbee, your running shoes or your camera! During the day this is such a fun adventure spot right in the heart of Atlanta.


Kennesaw Mountain – With a tad of history, this is always a fun, simple and quick hike up including education about the national battleground and what makes it a landmark.


Chattahoochee River Trail – Way down yonder by the Chattahoochee there’s a flat trail that is covered and perfect for a good walk or even run with your dog.


Roswell Riverwalk – A newer spot that is a boardwalk over the water. This trail is great to catch a tan while you’re exercising, and to grab a drink or meal in downtown Roswell afterward!


Preacher’s Rock – A bit of a drive but this location and other local trails in Dahlonega are scenic, peaceful, and challenging if you’re up for it!
