Union County, Georgia and it's county seat, Blairsville, were selected by the Appalachian Trail Conservancy (ATC) as an AT Community in 2010. This recognizes our community's efforts to promote and protect the Appalachian Trail and to provide support to those who hike it.

We have many other trails in our area, some of which connect to the AT while many are separate. For those seeking a less wild hiking experience, we have Meeks Park, a series of short trails located near our downtown. Many of our trails are located in the Chattahoochee-Oconee National Forest (CONF), and even within protected wilderness areas. So, we have hiking for all age groups and levels of fitness. Come on out and enjoy our trails.
