Big Trees Forest Preserve | 52 Hike Challenge 2017 | Hike 8

The Location

For Hike 8 I headed to Big Trees Forest Preserve. I’ve hiked in this area before, but not this trail or in this year’s challenge, so I can add it to my Explorer Series! Big Trees is about 30 acres of land located near Sandy Springs, Georgia. This area is extremely built up, and this preserve is a surprising oasis in the city.

The Hike

There’s not much to this one! It was a hot, sticky spring day, but I wanted to get out and do some easy hiking. This is a great option for me that’s close to home and easy to access (there’s always parking which is fantastic is a car city like Atlanta). So, I did a bit of nice, shady walking along the Big Trees Loop and that’s that. Not nearly as much drama as my last hike!
