Happy Trails To You . . . in Big Canoe (No, this is not a western flick)

Have you ever walked through idyllic flora-laden trails while breathing crisp clean air? Well now you can every day, if you wish, on the numerous trails in Big Canoe in the North Georgia Mountains.

You may enjoy the natural beauty this pristine community shares with residents (currently there are more than 2500 residential dwellings and counting) and numerous visitors each year.

Nearly one third of the 8,000+ acres in Big Canoe are devoted to green space and nearly 20 miles of verdant trails.

By the way, you may find it appealing that grass lawns are not permitted within the gates of Big Canoe. That actually allows us more time to feast on what Mother Nature abundantly offers.

We sold our house in the city, and the lawn mower too, when we decided to move to exceptionally beautiful Big Canoe. And you know what? We don’t miss sitting in traffic and mowing lawns one bit!

You can choose from several trails and parks, with their own appeal and special features, including Nature Valley Trail with cascading waterfalls, an early settler’s cabin, a water wheel and moonshine still.

Disharoon Lake Trail features foot bridges over the lake, a water slide and overlooks Creek Golf Course. McDaniel Meadows Trail has paths lined with colorful flowers, a creek and a fenced-in dog park. Nancy Womack Trail leads to a splendid waterfall and higher mountain elevations. Wildcat Park Trails are paved for hiking and biking. They are nestled in the woods, bridges cross over streams and rest stops are provided along the way for examining interesting bronze sculptures. Other lovely trails are located in Choctaw, Meditation Park, Playfield Park and in Waterford.
