Who's ready to get their wild life on! Fort Mountain State Park in northern Georgia, can be found in the beautiful Chattahoochee National Forest and is a great way for the family to get out into the great, GREAT outdoors!
This mountain getaway has some of the most beautiful trails in Georgia. You can spend the day hiking, or perhaps racing on your super fun mountain bikes. Horseback riders, you're included too as you make your way through the hardwood forest and blueberry thickets. Challenge yourself as you cross streams and explore the picturesque lake.
Hikers - you can also explore and amazing stone fire tower, and an ancient rock wall, both found on the highest point on the mountain. Maybe you can help them solve their problem, because the very mysterious 855 foot long wall is thought to date back all the way to early Indians, who built it as a fortification against more hostile Indians or even for ancient ceremonies.
