I have been meaning to post about our latest hiking trip for awhile now. But life has been a little hectic. A few weeks ago we visited Fort Mountain State Park. This park is located in north Georgia in Chatsworth, Georgia. It is a 2 hour drive from where we live. There is a $5 parking fee. Which isn’t too bad. Trust me with the views it is well worth it.
We hiked three trails. Big Rock Nature Trail, Gahuti Trails and Cool Springs Overlook, and West Overlook Trail. Big Rock Nature Trail and the West Overlook trail takes about an hour to hike. Gahuti Trails and Cool Springs Overlook takes 5 hours which explains why we only went part way. We drove the rest of the way once we realized how long it would take. The Big Rock Nature Trail leads to a beautiful small waterfall. The West Overlook Trail leads to a overlook and a tower. We were going to go to the tower but decided against once we reached the top. We were all tired. This place has some amazing views. It also has some great places to take pictures. It is so peaceful. That’s one of the reasons why I love hiking it’s so peaceful.
Like all our hiking adventures I thoroughly enjoyed this outing. It was really fun. I don’t think I will ever get enough of doing this.
