Hiking the Georgia Trails

We actually went  hiking on two trails and they were both not far from our campsite at Red Top State Park about 40 minutes north of Atlanta.  After a pretty busy day of trying to see the sites in the hustle and bustle of Atlanta the previous day, we decided to back off and take a hike.  It turned out to be an excellent choice.

Our campground may be typical for Georgia and if so, we are impressed.  We had quite a few trails to choose from and we picked the one nearest our campsite and joined up with another one.
We started on the Campground Trail taking us over to the Visitor Center and then joined up with the Sweet Gum Trail.
 The trails had enough ups and downs to get our heart rate up at times.
 But mostly it was a chance to get out there and enjoy the woods and take in the fresh air.  It was great day.  We love to do it and wonder why we don't get out there more often...

Here's a look at the 3.22 mile route we walked on my MapMyRide app:

I'm sure we'll be doing more hikes as we enjoy the weather down South here for the next few weeks!

Thanks for joining us on the Roadrunner Chronicles!
