Experience Fall At Georgia State Parks

Experience Fall At Georgia State Parks

October has officially arrived, and Georgia is ready to welcome the changing leaves, bonfires, and crisp walks in the fall air. The best way to experience and appreciate this beautiful season is by spending time outside with friends and family. There are nearly fifty state parks in Georgia, all of which will offer unparalleled views, exciting trails, and autumnal events throughout the rest of the year.

The Georgia State Parks website is keeping track of the changing of the leaves, and offers a daily update, hiking tips, events, and a list of parks to find the best mountain views. Another great way to enjoy the fall outside is by reserving a campsite for the weekend, where you can build a bonfire, roast s’mores, explore the changing nature around you, and make memories with loved ones. To find the nearest campsite to you, visit the Georgia State Parks & Historic Sites Map and call to learn more about the campsites’ reservation policy. Experience the change in temperature and feel the cool autumn breeze at High Falls State Park by standing next to the tumbling cascades on the Towaliga River, hiking along the river’s edge, or trekking through the forest. Framed by trees with changing leaves, High Falls is the perfect place to watch nature change before your eyes.

Whether it’s hiking or leaf-gazing, I hope you spend some time outdoors this fall to watch the environment change around you. There are endless opportunities in our state of Georgia to experience the true beauty of the changing seasons!
