You can hike at any time or any day. Please see the Hike of the Week at the bottom of the page for details on each trail. Any one trail can count towards the Hiking Scouting on Depand patch. For each additional trail they hike the Scout will get an additional Hiking rocker patch at the end of the season. Join the Junior Ranger Program at Georgia State Parks and use your hike towards those requirements as well!
