Located near Callaway Gardens and the 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 nearby Warm Springs and built his Little White House. Several structures within the park, including the stone swimming pool and some cottages, were built by Roosevelt’s Civilian Conservation Corps during the Great Depression. Above Kings Gap is Dowdell’s Knob, Roosevelt’s 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 Georgia’s 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.

There is a LOT of hiking in the area including a long, multi day trail down the Pine Mountain ridge.
In the area is Callaway Gardens, The Little White House, several small ...
