If you are from Georgia, you have a love/hate relationship with the famous red clay that is everywhere. Unfortunately, in many natural pools in our state parks, the clay is what makes them not so clear. There is one place where you can find the bluest water in Georgia and we are here to tell you where to find this secret spot.\nJames H. Floyd State Park in Summerville, Georgia has a trail that will lead you straight to an above ground cave with a great surprise that comes with it. To get to this, you must take the Marble Mines Trail.\nView this post on Instagram I'll think of a mermaid lagoon underneath a magic moon 🌙. .📸: @thelucasmoss . .#exploregeorgia A post shared by Virginia (@virginiabrauns) on Jun 9, 2017 at 12:27pm PDT\nThis is an easy hike that is only 1.7-miles round trip and will not make you work for the beautiful destination.\nAlong this trail is where marble miners in the 60s and 70s worked. See why they named it Marble Mines now?\nAs you begin onto your adventure down this trail, you will notice how shaded this trail is. There are trees on both sides and above that canopy over you that only let bits of sunlight in.\nYou can just see the history as you walk along. Different mine buildings, now abandoned and in ruins, are along the path which leads you to an even greater ruin.\nView this post on Instagram Reached the 1/5 point of my #52hikechallenge today. Looking back on the past ten hikes I have to say this one is still my favorite. It was so pretty and very different than most hikes. . . . . #marbleminetrail #romegeorgia #explorenorthgeorgia #hikegeorgia #georgiahikers #georgiahikes #exploregeorgia #hiking_daily #hiking👣 #hiking🌲 #hikerchick #womenwhohike #wandernorthgeorgia #hikeon #52hikechallenge2019 #gypsybelletravel A post shared by Christine 🌻 The Gypsy Belle (@gypsybelletravel) on Mar 31, 2019 at 11:56am PDT\nYou will come up to the above-ground cave, that is lined with a boardwalk so you can actually walk through it. Kind of hard to believe that this cave was not man-made, it is just that neat.\nAbove the cave is a stream that falls into the pool, overlooked by the boardwalk.\nThis is some of the bluest water you will encounter in the state of Georgia, and most people do not even know it exists. You cannot swim in it, but the water trickling down into it is memorizing.\nView this post on Instagram Have you been to this state park yet in Summerville, GA?! 🤔 It has a marble mine that you can hike to🙌🏼 The trail is just under 2 miles round trip👍🏼 📸: @justinleewanderer ↟ ↟ ↟ ↟ ↟ If you would like us to feature your hiking adventures tag us in your shot or use the hashtag #georgiahikers!
