Trails and Parks
Big Canoe retains the qualities of a hometown set in an area recognized by Georgia Audubon as a nature preserve, so it’s no wonder that our parks, recreational areas and 25 miles of hiking trails are so central to community life.
Big Canoe Trails
The hiking trails of Big Canoe offer the best way to connect with the community’s natural beauty. The 25-mile network of trails, maintained by the Big Canoe Trails Committee, each have their own unique appeal and standout features. Ranging from broad, paved trails to forest footpaths, the trails meander among trees, streams, fern groves, meadows and the green spaces of Big Canoe. There is even a Jeep Trail to enjoy in a 4x4 vehicle.LEARN MORE
