With the cool breeze of fall and the chill of winter just around the corner, here are three local walking, biking, and hiking destinations you can enjoy before you have to start adding on layers.
L Scott Stell Park
When you just want to take your pup for a stroll and enjoy the authentic beauty of the great state of Georgia, L Scott Stell Park is a great choice. With wide open spaces, an off-leash dog park, a small lake with a boat launch, and a dedicated walking trail, you’ll have plenty to do and see.

Beginning at The Savannah-Ogeechee Canal Museum & Nature Center, this 7-mile bike trail runs along the historic Savannah and Ogeechee Canal. With both paved and dirt roads, you’re immersed in the lush greenery and local wildlife. The museum and nature center are open year round if you feel like visiting after your ride.
