This trail has it all. In addition to all the categories listed above, the trail also welcomes inline skaters and wheelchairs. And at over 60 miles in length, you'll have logged 120 miles round trip, so make plans to stay in either Rockmart or Cedartown because that's a lot of trail for one day. But wait... There's more.

Mystery Mountain Marathon is a race which takes place in October at Fort Mountain State Park outside of Chatsworth, Georgia.

Suches, Georgia, United States

We met a friend at Lake Winfield Scott and rode in one car to the Woody Gap starting point, then at the end, used the other car to get us back to all our own vehicles. This shuttle allowed us to cover a longer section than we had time for otherwise.This is great for day-hikers with only a little experience. This track gives you 5.9 miles of the Appalachian trail, followed by...

Oconee Heritage Trails Hike 1
by KevinUrsus on Jan 30, 2011
Farmington, Georgia, United States
Hiking | 5.5 miles
I saw this network of hike/bike/horse trails just 20 miles from home and thought I would check it out, though I didn't expect much. It was better than expected and gave me a real workout while remaining easy and enjoyable. While the 5.5 mile route I took included hundreds of feet of elevation change, it was in smaller amounts up and down the ridges, so I could keep my pace pretty well....

AT Day 87 - The Approach Trail
by pjwetzel on Apr 01, 2012
Amicalola, Georgia, United States
Hiking | 16.3 miles
The Approach Trail Frankly I had expected Amicalola Falls to be just another excuse to put a state park somewhere - just a pretty place that also just happened to be conveniently situated near the original Appalachian Trail so that it could become a serviceable jumping-off point when encroaching development ruined the Mt. Oglethorpe area's natural setting. In other words, I expected Amicalola Falls State Park to be nothing special. I was wrong. I'm a lover...

Springer Mountain

Three Forks, Georgia, United States
Hiking | 1.3 miles
As long as I've lived nearby, I had never been to the top of Springer Mountain.  It's a short hike, after a 10 mile Forest Service road, but was a nice trail, it was fun hiking the first segment of the AT.The little stub off the trail heads over to a camping area with many tent sites, and one small shelter.
