Take a Hike!
On September 29, pull out your hiking boots, pack a picnic and head to your closest Georgia state park to take advantage of Free Day in the Parks. In celebration of National Public Lands Day, all Georgia state parks will be offering free parking and admission from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m.
Spend a portion of the day giving back to a park by participating in trail maintenance and lake cleanups, then enjoy a variety of outdoor activities like fishing, horseback riding, backpacking and paddling.
In total, Georgia has 58 state parks, but the closest ones to Atlanta include Panola Mountain State Park in Stockbridge, Sweetwater Creek State Park in Stockbridge and High Falls State Park in Jackson. Check the Georgia state parks website for information regarding the activities offered at each park.
