  • Horseback Riding

    Spring provides equestrians and horse enthusiasts with perfect weather for a beautiful ride. Local stables can set you up with a gentle steed to take you on an extraordinary ride to spy flowers, blossoming trees, and nature awaking to a new season.

  • Hiking

    Spring is a great season to go hiking, as nature comes back to life. Take the easy routes through our picturesque Meeks Park or choose a hardcore trail that traverses streams, scales mountains and descends into deep gorges. The most famous trail in the area is the Appalachian trail. Accessible from several locations within Union County, the AT winds 80 miles through the Chattahoochee National Forest.

There are trails all over Georgia, including Blairsville’s own Vogel State Park. For an outdoor activity with lots of family fun, geocaching can’t be beat.
