Hiking Georgia covers well-known areas but also introduces hikers to some relatively undiscovered places. The author describes more than 100 trails that vary in length and difficulty. Choose from an easy one-hour stroll along a quiet nature trail, a trek along 80 miles of the Appalachian Trail, or a medium distance that suits you. Recently revised and expanded, this guide contains accurate information, detailed maps, and photos that depict the landscape of the Peach State's backcountry: the come-hither curve of an insectivorous swamp plant, rivers and waterfalls, and historic battlefields. It also includes tips on hiking with children and backcountry safety and ethics. Whether you're looking for a long backpacking adventure in the Blue Ridge Mountains or an easy family hike within minutes of downtown Atlanta, Hiking Georgia is an essential source for exploring Georgia's beautiful parklands and backcountry.
