North Georgia's best winter hikes
- We think hiking uphill, getting your heart rate up and having a picnic at the top of Springer Mountain (and then Waffle House on the way home) is a wonderful way to feel refreshed after a tough week.
- If you want to reach the highest point in Georgia, check out Brasstown Bald.
Before you go: Check the weather and park conditions, as some trails might be closed. Dress extra warm, with layers. Don’t forget comfortable boots with grip.
Other options: Stick closer to home and head to Sweetwater Creek State Park, any one of Atlanta’s calm nature preserves or Island Ford, one of our favorite parts of the Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area. The weather will be nice.
Bottom line: Head outside. You’ll be glad you did.
