    Wow, these hidden gems show what a paradise Atlanta is for nature lovers! I love the sound of hiking along Chattahoochee River and jumping from Chattahoochee cliff. Would be such a brilliant thing to do on a hot summer day!

      It sure is, Medha. It is one of the greenest cities in the US after all 🙂

    Wow that’s a fantastic guide for outdoor junkies like me! What a beautiful countryside. I would have not expected Atlanta are to be so rich. I love the diving rock, that seems to be a lot of fun. Would love to walk the Doll’s Head Trail too.

    Never thought of Atlanta as a travel destination but I might just have to change my mind after your post! The photo of the Doll’s head looks kinda creepy and I hope the other artworks after it are not that freaky! Lake Claire seems absolutely tranquil and has a nice bucolic setting which I think I will enjoy. Junkman’s daughter (very aptly named) seems interesting too!

      It kind of does, doesn’t it? 🙂 But don’t worry, the other artworks look more cheerful 🙂

    Love all of these ideas — I had no idea about any of them! It’s surprising to me that there are so many ways to enjoy nature in Atlanta. (I mostly just associate it with traffic.) But the Cascade Springs Nature Preserve and the Lake Claire Land Trust both look very beautiful! I love quirky shops like the Junkman’s Daughter, will have to check it out — thanks!

      While traffic is also a part of Atlanta, the city also has an abundance of green surfaces, some of which very near to the central area. Thanks for stopping by and dropping a comment and I’m glad you could get some inspiration for your next trip to Atlanta

    I was once passed Atlanta place but wasn’t sure what to do. I wish I could have read such an informative post at that time. Nevertheless, I can use the article for my future reference. Good post!

    My bucket list grows longer. This really is such a green place. I am scared of diving but that rock is so fascinating. And the Millennium Gate looks so like the India Gate in Delhi. I love doing forest trails and the East Palisades Trail is surely on my must-do things. In india, most trails are not marked and you need a local with you, so this one with a map seems like a treasure.

    I’ve not yet made it to Atlanta when in the US but it looks like a fun city! I’ve to say, I’d like to get out and explore the countryside, as I’m a city girl myself. While I don’t think I’ll be jumping off the rock anytime soon, I’d definitely like to visit the Cascade Springs Nature Reserve, it looks beautiful.

    Wow! I didn’t know Atlanta is so beautiful! I mean look at those trails in the lap of wild nature and those out of the world lakes. I like the look and the location of the diving rock. I may not dare dive from there though. Doll’s Head Trail also looks fascinating. Rhodes Hall is my kind of place considering it is one of the last remaining classical buildings in the city.
