If your pup is getting bogged down with the cares of every day life, treat them to an afternoon at Callaway Resort and Gardens. While two legged visitors can enjoy the resort’s golf course, spa, restaurants, or Robin Beach Lake, four legged guests will be more interested in the Callaway Gardens Trails. So grab the leash and start exploring!
There are eight trails that showcase the beautiful grounds of Callaway. Most of them are pretty short, so be sure to combine a couple trails so your pal can get enough exercise. The 1.6 mile Azalea Bowl Trail is definitely a show stopper during the spring. Mosey along this trail and let your pooch marvel at the explosion of color the 3,000 Azaleas create. Mountain Creek Trail meanders alongside Mountain Creek Lake and lets your pup see the local wildlife like turtles, ducks, fish, and herons.
For a trail that celebrates Georgia’s natural flora, wander down the Wildflower Trail. It’s less than a mile, but it’s worth checking out so your doggo can see the rare native plants. As you walk through the grounds, you’ll find plenty of pawsome spots, gazebos, bridges, and hillsides to sit and waste away the afternoon with your furry BFF. Picnic sites are also available, so bring a sandwich and stick around for lunch.
Admission prices are dependent on age and range from
$14.95 to $24.95. Annual memberships are also available. Restrooms and water
fountains are located throughout the park. Attractions and indoor facilities
are open every day from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. However, the trails and gardens
are open until dusk. Leashed dogs are welcome to enjoy the grounds of Callaway Resort
and Gardens with a couple exceptions. Besides a limited number of pet friendly
Mountain Creek Inn rooms, pets are not allowed in buildings. They also must
avoid the Robin Lake Beach area and Birds of Prey show. The Callaway Gardens
Trails will definitely make your pooch one happy hound!
