Winter Brings Quiet Escapes, Easy Getaways

Black Rock Mountain in snow

A different kind of beauty unfolds in wintertime. Lakes are still in the early mornings, with mist swirling above the water’s surface. Sunbeams radiate through barren and beautiful tree branches. Hikers can see further through the forest, making it easier to spot deer. Winter is also a great time for last-minute getaways when it’s easier to grab a cabin with the perfect porch view. A few Georgia State Parks are offering discounts in February, making this a good time to save on quick getaways. Find the perfect winter hiking trail, campsite, yurt or cabin on
