We always have a high request for something with hiking, biking, and/or running in our Gatherings, especially in the fall. There are plenty of outdoor enthusiasts in Atlanta, and these are a few of the great trails in Georgia they’re headed to this fall.
Located in Dekalb County
The Arabia Mountain trail itself is a short one, but beautiful nonetheless. It’s packed with incredible views and is stunning in every season, but especially in the fall. This isn’t your typical tree-filled hike. With some massive exposed granite fields, it’s something you just have to see for yourself.
Located in Roswell
26.5 mile stretch
This is an easy walk full of forest views, wildflowers, and waterfalls. There are a few historic spots from the Civil War era that are really cool to check out. Bonus: It’s nearby several local restaurants to treat yourself after a long hike.
Located in Marietta
This trail is uniquely carved along the ruins of an old paper mill destroyed by Union troops during the Civil War. You’ll be hiking along the Chattahoochee River in a remote area less traveled. This is one of Atlanta’s best kept secrets!
Located in Douglas County
There is a two trail combo that runs along Sweetwater Creek. You’ll see sand, rocks, grassy meadows, and a beautiful forest - it’s one of the most diverse landscape trails. Plus, the Civil War ruins are breathtaking. It’s beautiful and a great place to explore.
