From challenging backcountry treks in the mountains to easy day hikes along the Chattahoochee River, the 100 diverse trails in this book pass through parks where families can observe wildlife, historical sites, and old battlefields, and one of the largest wilderness areas in the Southeast. Maps with GPS waypoints indicate notable spots on the trails.The mountains and upper Piedmont support Virginia pines, which usually only reach about 40 feet high and are shorter than other pines. Their trunks appear orange-brown and often do not grow as straight as trunks of other pine species.
