Tallulah Gorge State Park
The scenery is spectacular and a little-known paved trail is a great option for families.
The newest state park in Georgia opened this summer on Lake Lanier. Fall color views from the water would be beautiful, and two trails (one for hikers only and one for bikers, too) cut through hardwood forest.
Besides terrific fall color, families visiting here can stroll a paved path behind the park office and explore a log cabin and blacksmith shed.
The popular one-mile Red Trail follows the creek to old mill ruins, and rocky bluffs inside the park provide spectacular views of the trees.
An easy hike, The Lake Loop Trail, leads to a small waterfall, and the roads that wind around the park are breathtaking stretches of fall color.
If you visit one of these (or any other Georgia State Park or historic site) take photos and post them to facebook.com/georgiastateparks. Each week in October, one winner will receive a one-year membership to Friends of Georgia State Parks & Historic Sites.
