Stay at Majestic Vogel State Park at the Foot of Dramatic Blood Mountain

Vogel State Park cabins are a gateway to exploring the Chattahoochee National Forest in Georgia, where an array of species live among the pine and hardwood trees. The park's hiking trails vary from almost perfectly flat and steady to dramatically inclining on backcountry roads.

The Best Hiking Trails in Vogel State Park

Undoubtedly the best way to see the park is by hiking its magnificent trails. Even if you're a beginner outdoorsperson, you can find a trail that suits you. More active travelers will enjoy the challenge of the trails' inclines.

  • 1. Trahlyta Lake Trail

    Looping around a flat and wide mile-long path, with an observation deck below the spillway of a dam, this trail takes about an hour to complete. Photograph the mountain from the bridge for enviable pictures to share on social media.

  • 2. Byron Herbert Reece Nature Trail

    Also taking around an hour to walk is this 0.8-mile partial looping trail that has much more of an incline. The forestland, which is particularly diverse here, will appeal to active hikers who appreciate ecology.

  • 3. Coosa Backcountry Trail

    This massive, 12.9-mile partial loop takes around nine hours to complete and is the park's ultimate challenge. The trail climbs and dips with a mile difference in elevation at each extreme, and there are three ridgelines to cross. This is the best experience for seasoned hikers.

The Best Family Activities in Vogel State Park

Georgia is known for its charm, and the friendly rangers will help make your stay at Vogel State Park cabins and hotels an unforgettable experience. There's plenty to enjoy at the lake, including water sports, swimming, and fishing.

  • 1. Swimming and boating

    The mountain lake at Vogel is great for family-friendly swimming. Alternatively, rent a kayak and see the park from a new perspective, or try aqua cycling, another fun activity that's quite different from traditional boating. You can also fish for trout at the shore, pier, or on the lake from a boat.

  • 2. CCC Museum

    The Civilian Conservation Corps helped make the park what it is today. This museum will help you understand and appreciate their contributions to conserving Georgia's natural environment. Check out the photographs and read about the lives of these nature lovers.

  • 3. Picnicking

    Choose from any of the park's four picnic shelters and make the most of the great outdoors with some al fresco dining. Picnic Shelter One is wheelchair accessible, and all four are dog friendly. There's also a lake pavilion available to rent, which is perfect for events such as family reunions.
