Quick Georgia Day Trips for Fall Foliage

Fall is now here and it’s time to plan some road trips. Maybe you don’t have a lot of free time coming up, but these trips can be wrapped up in a day. Make your plans now to see some of Georgia and the surrounding area’s best fall foliage displays. Before you head out, be sure to have your vehicle serviced at SouthTowne Motors of Newnan.

Amicalola Falls State Park

For red and auburn mixed with dark orange, visit the Amicalola Falls State Park in Dawsonville. The colors are highly contrasted with the several shades of green from the pines and the brown oaks in the area. Visit the top of the falls to get a great view of bright oranges and yellows in the lower elevations.

Cloudland Canyon State Park

This park, just outside of Chattanooga, Tennessee, is teeming with color in the fall. The leaves in the valley and canyon peak in the first week of November, so you’ll see plenty of color then. This Georgia park has rim overlooks that are easy to reach; plus, for those who prefer a challenge, you’ll find challenging hiking trails.

F.D. Roosevelt State Park

Peak season at F.D. Roosevelt State Park is late October/early November, so plan accordingly. Hike the 6.7-mile Wolf Den Loop or drive to Dowdell’s Knob for some great scenery and to see the life-size sculpture of President Roosevelt.

Additional Parks

You can also find spectacular fall colors at additional parks, including Moccasin Creek State Park in Lake Burton, Red Top Mountain State Park in Lake Allatoona, and Smithgall Woods State Park in Helen.
