Vogel State Park is one of Georgia’s oldest and most popular facilities in the Georgia Parks system.  The park is located at the base of Blood Mountain in the Chattahoochee National Forest and is one of the first two parks designated by the State of Georgia and founded in 1931.  Much of the park was constructed by the Civilian Conservation Corps during the 1930s.

This short loop hike starts at the visitor’s center and circles the lake.  It passes across a damn with a spillway that creates an impressive waterfall that can be seen from a side trail. Views of the mountains toward Blood Mountain are seen in the distance and the trail is suitable for small children. There are wilderness trails that start near the campground, but if you are looking for a short hike to entertain the kids – this is perfect.  They can also play putt-putt golf and get ice cream from the visitor’s center when you finish!
