Hiking with Dogs at Don Carter State Park #TailsonTrails #FreebieFriday

Last weekend we hit the trails again for our third #TailsonTrails hike. The idea is to hike all seven designated Georgia State Parks and so far we've hit Red Top Mountain, Sweetwater Creek and now Don Carter State Park.

Don Carter is the newest of Georgia's State Parks -- at the park office we were told it's just three years old. And it's the first state park on 38,000-acre Lake Lanier, so the dogs were excited about some swimming time.

Rocco and Codie took a dip, while Bingo got her paws wet, and then we hit the trail.

The hiking trails at Don Carter are all fairly easy with a few of them being paved and ADA accessible. The park also features a couple of paddle trails along with rentals for kayaks, stand-up paddle boards and aqua cycles.

Since the trails were fairly easy, we were able to cover all of them in one day for a total of about four miles.
About halfway in, it started to rain, making it good a time as any for another dip in the lake!

Heading in after the rain, we hit another paved trail.


And then it was time to dry off outside the park office!
