  • Had a great hike on the TRT at Black Rock Mountain! Trail was narrow in spots and it was a little steep in some places but I'm 41 and made it fine. Views were nice toward the end. 
  • The 2 bedroom cabin was great for our Georgia adventure with our 15-year-old grandson. We hiked the park trails, picked wild blackberries for our pancakes, got up just before dawn to capture the sun r...  read more »
  • For only $5/car, you can spend the day here! Rangers were friendly and nice. Stopped by the visitor's center and a few outlooks - so breathtaking! We hiked around the lake ... Easy walk, flat terrain,...  read more »
  • The park is well organized. The Pioneer Site was a large campground suitable for a massive gathering. Three shelters with bunks are on site as well as a cabin. Electricity, lights, microwave,outlets were available. A wood stove for winter heat. Plenty of tent and hammock space. The road to the c ' ground should be traveled by off road vehicles. It is steep,rocky and rutted. Oh, and lattrines,as well as outside shower are available . Hiked to top of Tennessee Rock was perfect, and summit beautiful.
  • The view from the visitors center is spectacular. For a view of the other side of the mountain, park at the visitor center and hike about 3/10ths of a mile up the road. When you see the eastern continental divide sign, there is a trail to your right that leads to a peak overlooking the other side.
  • Lovely little park with great camping facilities. A few trails ranging from .25 - 7.5 miles. All have significant climbs to beautiful views, except the lake trail which is lovely for different reasons. Camping facilities are clean and standard. Highly recommended with good friends and campfire food.
  • First time visiting to hike the challenging James Edmonds Backcountry Trail. The visitor center is set high on the mountain with panoramic views. Make sure to grab a map and don't forget to bring plenty of water.
  • Highest state park on Georgia. Clean, easy to get to, a few nice hikes with good views. Close to Clayton for shopping and Tiger Drive In for a fun evening out.
