That Time of Year

Some of the activities I have included are best visited a certain time of year, and in some cases can only be visited part of the year.

Enchanted Woodland Trail

fun things to do in atlanta enchanted woodland trail

Okay, so this one is for a very selective audience, but I personally think this is really cool! This magical adventure is only open part of the year. It is a stellar family project to get together and build one of your very own fairy/gnome houses and display it on a popular trail. The deadline to apply to add a gnome home of your own to the enchanted forest for next year is in September 2019.

Of course, anyone can view and enjoy this winter without having to build one!

I know one thing for sure – I’m breaking out my fairy sized work belt!

Devil’s Racecourse Shoals

fun things to do in atlanta, chattahoochee river cliff jump

Walk down Whitewater Creek Trail along the river until you find this legendary view!

This one is a little secret only the locals know. I am even from Atlanta, and I have only met 1 other person who knows how to get to this spot without tubing down the whole river or having to swim all the way across.

You can only fin this spot after a quick tube ride or hike (depending on where you’re coming from), so consider this a very well kept secret you can only learn about here.

Come prepared because you are in for a 20 – 30-minute hike out to the cliff jumping spot on the Chattahoochee River. In the summer this area is packed in fun-loving party people with their coolers filled to the rims! There are two cliffs here, one that is about 10 feet above the water and another that is only for the brave at roughly 25 feet high! The water is deep and there is a nice spot for you to climb back up on land.

east palisades trail map

If you would prefer to walk there instead of tubing down the river, head over the Whitewater Creek Trail. You will want to go from EP-1 to EP-30. (See the map to right). Don’t worry, there are maps along the trail to help guide you. However, once you are at EP-30, you will need to leave the marked trails and hike a bit further up the river to the cliff. Follow along the river and you will eventually come to the cliff. You will know when you’re there because you won’t be able to miss the breath-taking view!

How to get there

When you arrive you will need to follow the trail across the bridge to start out. Follow along the river the whole time you will end up in the right spot. Eventually, you will get to a large rock you need to climb over (the hike gets more difficult from this point!). You will need to continue to follow along the river, over the rock that sticks out and blocks your path (You will need to climb over it or get your feet a little muddy! This means you are almost there). Continue walking along the river and you will know you make it to the spot when you see a rock protruding from the mountainside and patrons jumping in and tubing by. Go a little further for the higher jump! There is a small off-grid trail there from all the thrill seekers’ footsteps over the years.

Watch out for the tubers!

  • Recommended age group: 10 years +
  • Price Range: There is a $5 charge per vehicle for parking
  • Location: 4058 Whitewater Creek Rd NW, Atlanta, GA 30327
  • Hours: Go during the swimming season if you want to swim. The trail is open sunrise to sunset all year and the view is worth the cold hike even in the fall!
