Get outside and back to nature in Georgia. Dive into outdoor activities, visit natural attractions and state and national parks, find outdoor outfitters and guides, and explore scenic byways and trails.

Georgia is filled with scenic trails to hike, bike, and paddle. From more than 600 miles of trails at Georgia State Parks to water trails that explore Georgia’s beautiful waterways, trail lovers have endless opportunities for adventure in Georgia. Discover historic treasures at National Parks in Georgia, or stretch your legs and let the kids burn off some energy at hundreds of local parks throughout the state.

Begin hiking the Appalachian Trail in Georgia at Springer Mountain, the southern terminus of the 2,200-mile trail through 14 states. Or, from the same starting point, choose to follow the 300-mile Benton MacKaye Trail, which takes hikers deep into remote areas of the Appalachian Mountains. Follow the 61-mile Silver Comet Trail from just outside Atlanta to the Georgia-Alabama state line, stopping in small towns along the way.

Hike to waterfalls, ruins, overlooks, and backcountry camping spots. Drive along Georgia’s Scenic Byways to off-the-beaten-path destinations you won’t see from the freeway.
