Autumn is a great time to get Out and About!
The weather is not too hot or too cold.
Traveling less than 10 miles from home is also a
good thing when you have a great park to visit.
I may have posted about this park before,
but it seems every time we visit the county has
made improvements. It was a state park but in
2012 it was handed back to the county.
This is what we found on our recent visit. It wasn't
here the last time we visited!
Sprewell Bluff, about a 10 minute drive and so pretty!
This is the overlook before you get into the park, The deck
and building was added this year after our last visit.
By this time each year the leaves have turned to many
beautiful colors, but not yet this year. We'll keep a watch
and be there when they do turn.
Big deck with the viewer so you can see for miles!
Now on to the park.
Sprewell Bluff is a 1,372 acre heavily wooded park.
The Flint River winds it's way through it on it's way
to Lake Blackshear. It is great for fishing, with
catfish and bass. Great Outdoors website has named
fly fishing on the Flint River as one of Georgia's top
It has 3 mile hiking trails along the
river going up to the bluff.
Bird watching is also common since the forest is a stop
for migratory song birds.
Picnic tables and two Pavilions are great for family outings, under
the shelter are along side the river. I do see a little leaf color here.
See the large rock the arrow is pointing to?
Children actually jump off it and swim!
Yes, and adult children too!
Yikes, I wouldn't even it I was a teenager,
too dangerous for me. The rock is higher
than it looks in this photo.
I closed my eyes when my grandchildren did it.
Hope you have enjoyed our outing today, come along anytime.
Next time we'll pack a picnic lunch!
Have a blessed day!
