Doll’s Head Trail

Threading in the heart of the urban, yet wild, Constitution Lakes Park is the eccentric, yet fascinating, Doll’s Head Trail. Dedicated to found art, this amazing trail resulted from the focused pursuits of Joel Slaton. A city carpenter, Slaton was meandering the course of the historical park, when he stumbled upon discarded doll parts. While others would disregard these pieces as crap, Slaton arranged the muddy doll heads and other parts in an interesting and interactive display of found art. Perched in trees, truck parts, bottle caps and more, the art does look creepy, but makes for an intriguing route nonetheless. Do carry a camera during your hike along the Doll’s Head Trail to document the unusual reclaimed artwork.

Silver Comet Trail

Years ago, the Silver Comet Rail Line took passengers back and forth between Atlanta and Birmingham, Alabama. Now, however, the abandoned line has carried passengers only on foot or on bicycle. This paved trail runs for 13 miles (21 kilometers) through Cobb County and continues into Paulding and Polk Counties. When completed, the trail will extend the entire length of the Atlanta-Birmingham line. Pets are allowed if leashed. You can access this scenic trail at multiple locations; just call for directions.

Stone Mountain Park

Just east of Atlanta, Stone Mountain Park is a 3200-acre (1300-hectare) park centres on the world's largest exposed granite mountain. Skylift gondolas whisk visitors 825 feet (251 meters) to the top, where commanding views of the Georgia countryside await them. The north face's bas-relief memorial to Jefferson Davis, Robert E. Lee and Stonewall Jackson is one of the world's largest. An antebellum plantation, an antique auto museum and a petting zoo are all located within the park. Playing host to myriad activities such as camping, dining, and lodging, this park bears wooden mountain slopes bearing recherche Georgia oak, natural pools as well as delightful, verdant foliage. During the summer, there are evening laser light shows on the mountain, whereas the Great Barn and Geyser Towers are other attractions in the park. Some of the major trails coursing through the park include the Cherokee Trail, Walk-Up Trail, Nature Garden Trail, and Songbird Habitat Trail.

Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area

Surrounded by the residential neighborhoods of Roswell and Sandy Springs, this beautiful park is a popular site for family picnics, quiet strolls, and dog outings. Trails are marked out throughout the park for hiking, running, and biking. Picnic sites are arranged along the banks of the slow-rolling Chattahoochee, the longest river in Georgia. Canoes and rafts are available for rent, and make for great summertime adventures. Take the Roswell Road off Interstate 285, go north to Azalea Drive and turn left for a day of rejuvenating recreation.
