Overview

Covers the abundance of natural areas within a two-hour drive of the city in 100 hikes, from challenging backcountry treks in the north Georgia mountains to easy dayhikes along the Chattahoochee River. The diverse trails pass through parks where families can observe wildlife, historical sites and old battlefields, and one of the largest wilderness areas in the Southeast. Highlights summarize each trip’s best features, and at-a-glance essential information—distance, time, elevation change, and difficulty rating—makes it easy to choose the right outing. Maps with GPS waypoints indicate notable spots on the trail such as junctions, scenic overlooks, wildlife observation platforms, and backcountry campsites.

Editorial Reviews

That you need a car to get around Atlanta has become a truism, but that doesn't mean that hikers need to put away their boots. Within a two-hour drive of the city are scores of spectacular backcountry walks and river strolls, making the whole region a natural subject for Wilderness Press's Afoot & Afield series. Author Marcus Woolf has scoped out 100 diverse hikes featuring wildlife, natural wonders, old battlefields, and other historic sites. Each entry summarizes the trip's best features and offers at-a-glance info on the essentials: distance, time, elevation change, difficulty rating, junctions, scenic overlooks, wildlife observations platforms, and backcountry campsites.
