Popular Nature Trails in the Albany, Georgia AreaPosted: Aug 28 in Lifestyle and Activity by Staff
Living in South Georgia makes getting active after bariatric surgery easier. Southern Georgia could not be more different than its northern half. Without a large city like Atlanta, southern Georgia is a quiet, more rural setting. In southern Georgia, there is almost no need to restrict yourself to a designated nature trail in order to enjoy nature walking. However, for your safety, it is best to do so. Nature trails are patrolled by rangers and are more easily searched if you should become lost. If you decide to hike one of Albany’s nature trails, be sure to let a friend or family member know where you plan to be, and when you plan to be back.
