So Many Paths to Take in Rabun County

So Many Paths to Take in Rabun County
You cannot travel the mountains of Northeast Georgia without going on a hike, and so the area is conveniently filled with a wide range of diverse trails for that reason.  If you are an experienced avid hiker Rabun County has exactly what you are looking for.  However, if you are a beginner and just starting out then we also have that as well.   With 75% of our land in the county is either national forest, lakes, or state parks.  You can find any type of hike or outdoor adventure you can imagine here in our piece of the Northeast Georgia Mountains.
If you’ve ever wanted to trek part of the Appalachian Trail, 75 miles of it lies in Georgia. It runs throughout the Chattahoochee National Forest, with the highest point in the state reaching 4,461 feet on top of Blood Mountain. For a shorter, yet equally challenging path, check out Rabun Bald Trail. It stretches across 2.9 miles and reaches the second highest point in Georgia. Be mindful that this trail is not for the beginner hiker. An easier option would be the Short Line Trail in Tallulah Gorge State Park. It’s paved and is an easier contrast to most other choices. Plus, it takes you across a suspension bridge over the Tallulah River. Some other short hikes include the Tennessee Rock Trail, Hemlock Falls Trail, Minnehaha Falls, Panther Falls, Angel Falls Trail, and the Coleman River Trail all of which are under 2 miles. And they’re all worth the trek!
Come Explore Rabun County with us.  Remember that we are also the Farm to Table Capital of Georgia so after you have our outdoor adventure make your way to one of our unbelievably delicious restaurants on main street in Clayton, Dillard, or on the lakes.  Your taste buds will thank you after you have worked up a big appetite with your hike.  Go here to see all our fantastic and very worthwhile restaurants within our boundaries.
