The Garland Mountain Equestrian/Hiking Trails are just a little north of the city in Waleska, GA - - not too far from Rinehardt College. The parking area and trails are maintained by the Cherokee County Saddle Club, where both riders and hikers are welcome.  Because of the equestrian connection, all the trails are named for horse breeds:  Palomino, Sorrel, Dun, Pinto, Chestnut, Dapple Grey, and Roan. Excellent blazes and maps allow for ease of following the trails, so there's no chance of getting lost.

The trails are winding and rolling, but have no long, steep climbs.  

We will walk a loop consisting of all of Palomino, part of Greenway East, all of Buckskin, and all of Sorrel.
