We go there often to play in this area. So many trails to walk and such a peaceful area. Warm Springs is also a fun town to explore, plus the FDR Little House Museum.

We drove through this park and stopped at a few scenic views. It is very well maintained by the state of Georgia. It contains the highest point in Group County.
