The Chattahoochee National Forest is a treasure and offers an incredible variety of day-hikes and lengthier trails for the adventurous. Some of my favorite hikes in the Clayton area include the Holcomb Creek Trail, the Three Forks Trail and the Panther Creek Trails. Forest trails are generally well maintained, but inexperienced hikers should be cautious as explores have carved out... More

The roads wind up and down the mountains with breathtaking views. We were there a week and seen 17 waterfalls and did not see half. There are... More

What a beautiful drive to Nashville from Atlanta. The scenery is stunning and very little traffic on good roads. We stopped off for a night in Clayton (the Parker Ranch) and had an enjoyable/educational walk around the Tuulula Gorge. Longer driving this way but a very peaceful relaxed journey.

Lots of hiking and easier walks throughout to enjoy the scenery. We had a great day exploring this area, playing on trees and through the water.

Great views with the leaves turning colour, it was a wonderful experience walking through the mountain area. The only downside was that the visitor centre was just a shop and I could have killed for a nice cup of coffee and something to eat after my hike - trail snacks are not that satisfying :) But Clayton is only down...
