Located near Callaway Gardens and the quaint town of Warm Springs, this park is deeply rooted in the historical era of four-time President Franklin D. Roosevelt. Seeking a place for treatment after he was stricken with polio in 1921, Roosevelt traveled to Warm Springs and built his Little White House. Several structures within the park were built by Roosevelts Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) during the Great Depression. Above Kings Gap is Dowdells Knob, Roosevelts favorite picnic spot overlooking a magnificent view of the valley below. A life-size sculpture of the beloved president welcomes visitors to the overlook. Hikers will enjoy the scenic trails in Georgias largest state park, especially the Pine Mountain Trail, which winds through a mix of hardwoods and pines. The trail's highest elevation is 1,395 feet. Pine Mountain is on the southern-most edge of the Appalachian Mountain range. Hikers are sometimes surprised to find this terrain in middle Georgia. One of the park's most popular amenities is the historic "Liberty Bell Pool" built by the CCC and fed by naturally cool springs.

Great hike! We went 17 miles in an overnight adventure. Camped at Bethel Campsite. The trail was nicely maintained, beautiful views, some small falls along the way and a host of wildlife.

Challenging for a beginner. Pay close attention to trail markers and your step. It's easy to trip on rocks. Pretty views up top and creek in ravine.

One of my favorite places to be. I can't wait to go back down and hike another portion of the trails in the state park! This turned out to be a long and arduous hike, we wound up doing right at 12 miles that day. Sans map!!

Went with the the family to hike this trail and found out the trail is less than a mile long. The trail just leads to an outcropping on the hillside for a decent view, but this is not a loop trail.

Kids Loved it - great views for Mid GA!

Great trail, truly a moderate trail. East end is the most popular. Wolf's den loop is really busy with a couple decent camp sites. The rest of the trail is usually quiet and not as busy. Good for families and very dog friendly. If you want a good 3-4 day trek you can do the entire 23 miles of the trail.
