Fort Mountain State Park is named for a 855-foot-long wall of loose rocks that archaeologists believe was built as a fortification by Woodlands Indians in 500 A.D. Over 3,700-acres offer walking and hiking trails for every level of ability. Take the easy 1.2-mile loop Lake Trail which is also accessible if traveled clockwise. The lake is open for swimming and boating and rentals are available on-site. Up for more of a challenge? Try the 8.2-mile Gahuti Trail. This moderate to strenuous back-country hike delivers extraordinary views, passing streams and waterfalls. Or hike to a stone fire tower built by the Civilian Conservation Corps. There are also bike, equestrian, and other back-country trails which require a permit. This park makes a great overnight stop with tent or RV camping and cottage rentals. Take part in seasonal events and educational programs such as learning about Georgia’s gold mining past and a nifty First-Time Camper program. There is a small entrance fee valid for all state parks visited that day.
