Hard Labor Creek State Park Trails Professional Review and Guide

"Hard Labor Creek State Park is a 5,864-acre facility situated to the north of I-20, between Covington and Madison in eastern Georgia. Local lore offers two sources for the park’s name. One ascribes the name’s origin to antebellum slaves who worked in the summer sun in surrounding plantation fields, while the other attributes it to Native Americans who found the stream hard to cross.

The 1.0-mile Brantley Nature and 1.1-mile Beaverpond Nature Trails are most practically walked as a single hike. Both are loop trails that are joined by a 70-yard connector. Also, the Beaverpond Nature Trail does not have a separate trailhead of its own. The trails meander through a mature, second-growth mainly pine-oak forest."
