Overview


One of the South's premier cities, Atlanta is home to an abundance of spectacular hiking and walking destinations. From urban hikes to suburban parks and rural wilderness, 60 Hikes within 60 Miles: Atlanta shows readers how to quickly drive to and enjoy the best area hikes. The Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area offers a wide range of outdoor activity, including several scenic hikes. Hikes from the Georgia mountains, Stone Mountain Park, Kennesaw Mountain National Battlefield Park, Sprewell Bluff, and locations in between provide Atlantans a diverse combination of hikes in length and difficulty.

In addition to scenic charm, many hikes have great historical appeal, such as Burnt Hickory Loop and Cheatham Hill Trail. Other trails, such as Grant Park Loop and the Atlanta Ramble, feature major Atlanta attractions. Complete with directions, maps, and a wealth of historical detail, the guide beckons hikers of all ages and fitness levels into the out of doors.

With this newly revised and updated 3rd edition, hikers will have no trouble selecting the perfect hike for spending an hour or an afternoon out on the beautiful trails of Atlanta.

Meet the Author


Randy and Pam Golden have shared their life-long love of hiking since they met at college in Florida. After marrying in 1977, they began hiking across the United States and into Canada. Among their favorite foreign destinations are Puerto Rico's El Yunque and Australia's Dandenong Mountains. They began writing about their adventures on their website, About North Georgia (ngeorgia.com). In 1998 the site's Trails section was spun off into a site of its own, Georgia Trails (georgiatrails.com). Their dogs Bessie and Sugar join them on hikes that permit pets.
