Recreation

The rolling hills near Dalton give way to farm communities in one direction and steep, curving passes in another. Alp-like inclinations of the region's mountain ranges make it a popular spot for cyclists, including pro-racers like Lance Armstrong and his former teammates, who have participated more than once in the annual Tour de Georgia race.

The local terrain also features waterfalls, astounding views and an abundance of flora and fauna. Regionally, outdoor activities include hiking as well as biking, horseback riding, spelunking, rock climbing, boating and white-water rafting. The cities and county also have an extensive park system, with parks, playgrounds, ball fields, tennis courts, soccer fields and many other recreation areas.
