To kick off the brand new year, three area parks will join more than 30 Georgia state parks and historic sites for guided walks to inspire families and friends to reconnect with each other and nature.
These hikes are some of the most inspiring “First Day Hikes” park rangers across America offer Americans to begin 2022.
Other activities include the kid-friendly walk through Mistletoe State park’s campground and a hike of three miles through Georgia’s “Little Grand Canyon” and an evening hike at Reed Bingham State Park.
Winter hikers can find intriguing tree shapes, tiny streams, and rock outcrops which are usually masked by spring foliage. A lot of guided hikes are dog-friendly, and visitors are encouraged to bring picnics before or after their trek, as per State Parks officials.
Georgia’s State Parks have warm yurts, cozy cabins, lodge rooms, and modern camping sites. Sparklers and fireworks are not permitted in state parks, making them ideal for a peaceful holiday to breathe clean air.
