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.
