This Easy Fall Hike In Georgia Is Under 2 Miles And You’ll Love Every Step You Take

I don’t know about you, but I feel like Georgia really shines in the fall. Not just in a leaf peeping kind of way (which is gorgeous unto its own) but in a way that the whole state really comes alive. Between the fall festivals, the autumn train rides, the pumpkin patches popping up left and right, it seems like there is a never-ending amount of things to do. And then you have the hiking…so many opportunities to get out there and enjoy the spectacular Georgia weather. Crisp cool air, the smell of the leaves—it is heaven on earth. If you’re looking for a place to enjoy all of Georgia’s best fall attributes, then this easy two mile hike is it.
