Tails on Trails Club

Club Logo

Bring Your Pup On A Tail-Wagging Adventure

With lakes, mountains, forests and more in between, hikers and their four-legged friends are challenged to explore trails at Georgia State Parks.

We'd love to see your photos! Tag #GaStateParks and #TailsOnTrailsClub.

Members Brag All The Time With An Exclusive Club Shirt

Membership is $20. Join the club by purchasing Tails on Trails Club membership online and we’ll mail you your own club shirt and a matching bandanna* for your pet to wear while you hike. You will receive a digital checklist so you can keep track of your accomplishments (This checklist can be downloaded from your email invoice or from your account profile page). Hike 12 of the 42 participating parks below with your furry companion to earn bragging-rights and a certificate of completion.

You don't need a dog to be able to complete the challenge on your own. No time limit applies, so hikers can take as long as they wish to complete the requirements. Dogs must be kept on a maximum 6' leash when in a Georgia State Park. Please clean up after your pet. Refer to Pets at State Parks for more information. Dog-friendly cottages are also available.

Fulfilling of Park Club and Geocaching orders and prizes may be slowed or delayed during this time. We will fulfil all orders and prizes at our first availability. Thank you for your understanding and patience.

* Please also note, due to a shortage from our supplier, the Tails on Trails bandannas are now hunter green but have the same design as before. The shirts are still purple.

 Purchase Tails on Trails Membership

Note: Please allow 4-6 weeks for processing and shipping. Youth sizes unavailable.
