At 9,049 acres, F.D. Roosevelt State Park is Georgia’s largest. With more than 40 miles of trails, including the popular 23 mile Pine Mountain Trail, this park is a hiker’s paradise.

As you enter the woods, you’ll wind through hardwood and pines, over creeks and past small waterfalls. I decided to do a little hiking while I was down in Warm Springs, and opted to take advantage of the Dowdell’s Knob trail. This trail offers the spectacular summits and stunning florals. Additionally, Dowdell’s Knob was a favorite of FDR and is the highest point in the Pine Mountain Range (1,395 feet above sea level).

F.D. Roosevelt State Park is only about an hour and a half south of Atlanta, making it a great day trip or an over-night destination. The State Park also offers accommodations in the park, including campsites and cabins.
