 Park Visitors Center. Inside Vogel State Park, Trahlyta Lake Trail is an easy 1-mile loop around the lake that crosses an earthen dam built by the CCC in 1935. And 4-mile Bear Hair Gap Trail is a great trail to bring the dogs.
Head down GA 129 to Helton Creek Road, 2 miles south of Vogel State Park, to access Helton Creek Falls. The short, easy walk tapers down into a mountain cove that leads to a multi- level cascading waterfall.
