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.

This was a light trail and well marked. We added the Delano trail to make it an even 4 miles.

A great trail with a lot of history. Be sure to go to the highest point and see the statue of Franklin Roosevelt. The trail is well blazed; however, you will go from Blue to White on the blazes. This is a bit confusing. we loved it overall.

A nice Trail that doesn't have a ton of elevation. Just did it in July, and we loved it.

Great trail but not super easy. Grab your backpack and dog then hit this trail for a secluded overnight adventure.
