One of my favorite places to run, especially in the fall, is Sweetwater Creek State Park in Lithia Springs, Georgia. Just a short drive west of Atlanta, you will be transported to stunning views over approximately 8 miles of whitewater-filled creeks, boulders, and remote forest. Additionally, this route passes the ruins of the New Manchester Mill, which was used as a filming location for The Hunger Games. This route combines the Red, White, and Yellow trails in the park and provides a pleasant change in scenery every few miles, which keeps my mind and legs engaged. I love coming out here early in the morning to take in all that Mother Nature has to offer. It is such a therapeutic running spot. This trail is dog-friendly, which also means I get to make a lot of new furry friends each time I run!
