Smithgall Woods Conservation Area, Helen Reviews

  • I love many of the state parks in Georgia deeply, however there are few that can marry my passion for hiking and biking so harmoniously. I used to think to myself, what if there was a park that was like a natural "museum" that had one nice, reasonably challenging, straightforward trail to follow and beautifully diverse mini-trails for you to enjoy systematically at your leisure? My prayers were answered and I found this one. I have a very nice, top-quality bike I recently bought that I value a lot and I was quite nervous about leaving it at the heads of the mini-trails without a lock, however apparently Smithgall holds the proud reputation of being thievery-free for 20 years! If you have a love of nature or history (or both!) you need to see this park once in your life.

  • Such a pretty drive and area. A bit confusing on how to get to the campsites but very pretty. Plenty to do for the entire family of any age group.

  • This is a decent place to hike. Some of it well maintained, while some parts need work. You have to walk on a paved road for over a mile to get to the first trail. It is supposed to e great for fishing.

  • Let me start by saying this is one of my favorite places to fish. But with that said, I had a pretty upsetting experience this morning. When you set reservations to fish it is usually a couple months out. So obviously your pretty excited the day you get to fish. Well, They don’t allow you to sign in until 7:30am. And what I unfortunately found out today is if your not signed in by 8:30 they will give your spot away. My spot was given away at 8:32am. I still can’t seem to find anywhere it states what they called a “no show”. I just want to inform my fellow fishermen. Don’t waste your gas money unless you get there by 8:25am. I still love this place but that was a hard lesson learned.

  • I hadn't heard about this place before, but my husband and I went hiking there to check it out since they have a lot of paved trails as well. The road was incredibly long, with a huge hill at the end, but we were surprised by how different each of the trails were. The wetlands trail led you through this beautiful area, and the miner's trail was my absolute favorite trail I've been on in a while. There were so many remnants of the gold Rush and the handouts of the history had a lot of cool trivia!
