Hidden Gems For The Whole Family To Enjoy at Georgia State Parks

Most of the Georgia State Parks and Historic Sites have identified their “hidden gems” – those special attributes, trails or unusual elements that make them special. Some of these are available for anyone to see them (as long as you know what to look for) and others are only available through guided walks at certain times of the year. Below is a list of the hidden gems for each park, as well as a link to the special “Hidden Gem” events happening throughout the year.
