Wish there were more fun things to do with your pet pals? Georgia State Parks recently launched Tails on Trails Club, a new dog-friendly group that challenges dog owners and their furry companions to explore seven dog-friendly trails to earn a special reward.

Upon checking off all seven trails located at various Georgia State Parks, dogs and their owners receive a bandana and a T-shirt.

Georgia State Parks and Historic Sites offer several diverse and scenic hiking trails complete with backcountry trails and cascading waterfalls for hikers to enjoy. While always welcoming to dog walkers, the club is a new way for dogs and their owners to explore trails and accomplish designated hikes.
