Vogel State Park Trails Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"One of the oldest state parks in Georgia, Vogel is also one of the most scenic. The park is situated on land donated to the state by the Vogel Tanning Company. Wolf Creek runs through the park and is impounded in the waters of Lake Trahlyta. The impoundment was constructed by the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) in the mid-1930s.
Park amenities include campgrounds, a playground, picnic areas, and rental cabins. There is also a minigolf course and paddleboats on the lake. A CCC museum is located on-site as well. The park’s four trails, along with nearby Sosebee Cove Trail, total more than 20 miles and cover a wide variety of conditions and habitats. Be aware that the Bear Hair and Coosa Backcountry Trails begin at a joint trailhead; both have green blazes. Also, these trails start in the state park, but they also run through lands in the Chattahoochee National Forest. Portions of both trails traverse the Blood Mountain Wilderness Area as well. The featured hike is on the Coosa Backcountry Trail."
