Best Dog Hikes in North GA Mountains – Part 1

Best Dog Hikes in North GA Mountains

This article combines my two favorite things – Dogs and Hiking.   I’m always looking for some new trails to take my Boxer and my backpack in the North Georgia mountains.

I have put together a couple of resources for you to make your search easier.

My first resource is from the page off atlantatrails.com called “Georgia’s best hikes with dogs: our top 10 favorite dog-friendly trails”

This article recommends –
