This Saturday is National “Take A Hike Day!” Hall County Parks & Leisure offers two easy to moderate multi-use trails, located at Cherokee Bluffs Park and North Hall Park.
At Cherokee Bluffs Park, hikers can walk 2.25 miles on the Bear Paw Trail. The trail takes users through beautiful woodlands, along a small stream and beside a beautiful lake. In addition, the trail provides access to the majestic ancient rock outcroppings used as shelter for hundreds of years by Native Americans and early settlers of the South Hall area. Trail users who wish to take a shorter hike can use the Bear Paw Connector, which is under a mile, or the Lake Loop at less than half a mile in length.
The Red Trail at North Hall Park offers a more moderate hiking experience. At 1.7 miles, the trail ascends and descends through a deep, beautiful forest area and along a small stream and lower wetlands. For an easier hike, the Green Trail offers a .75 mile walk along an open field, wetlands and streams. Bird watchers and wildlife enthusiasts will appreciate the viewing experiences often encountered on the North Hall trails.
The trails at Cherokee Bluffs Park and North Hall Park are multi use trails, meaning the trails are used for walking, running, hiking, and biking. Hall County Parks & Leisure officials encourage a “share the trail” mentality, asking those on wheels to always yield to those on foot.
Celebrate National “Take A Hike Day” on Nov. 17 at one of Hall County’s beautiful trails.
