If you like to both hike and paddle, you will enjoy this 5.14 mile combination trail. Situated along the shores of beautiful Lake Walter F George in southwest Georgia, you will experience the tranquility of a liesurely paddle, and a quiet walk through nature. Bordering the shores of Alabama & Georgia, the 48,000-acre Lake Walter F. George (lake Eufala as it is called by locals in Alabama) is a popular destination for hiking, bird watching, fishing and water sports. This resort park has a 60-room lodge, conference center, restaurant, cottages and a 18-hole golf course. The park's marina and boat ramp offer easy access for fishing and boating. The picnic shelters and picnic sites are great places for families to enjoy their catch. Visitors may also observe a wide variety ofwildlife along the lake's shores, as well as along the 3-mile nature trail, which winds through hardwoods and pines. The lake was named for a United States Senator from Georgia, and is formed by the Chattahoochee River along the border between Alabama and Georgia. The lake stretches north from the Walter F. George Lock and Dam in Fort Gaines, and provides 640 miles of shoreline. So come on down to George T Bagby State Park, and enjoy a day hke, a paddle along the shores, and maybe you also will come away with memories to last a lifetime. Directions: 3.5 miles north of Fort Gaines off GA Hwy. 39.
