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.

Arabia Mountain

  • Located in Dekalb County

  • 5.1 miles

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.

Vickery Creek

  • 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.


Sope Creek

  • Located in Marietta

  • 3 miles

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!


Sweetwater Creek

  • Located in Douglas County

  • 4-mile loop

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.
