There & Back Again Hiking Society: Heart Healthy Hike February is American Heart Month! What better time to join us for a hike? Stay on track with your New Year's resolutions, and explore the beauty of NW Georgia while you take care of your health. This month we are headed to Spring Bank in Kingston to wander through this beautiful 40 acre green space, which was once home to Cass County resident Charles W. Howard in the 1800s. Bartow County now owns the land, which is home to the 2nd largest oak tree in Georgia! On the hike, we will see the Civil War era family cemetery, ruins from the Howard home, and the area's namesake spring as we walk along the quiet and pristine nature trail. Spring Bank is free to visit, but you are required to have a parking permit issued by Bartow County Parks & Recreation. Meghan will pick up passes for as many vehicles as necessary, so please send an email to email@example.com, shoot us a private message on Facebook, or give us a call at 770-382-4203 x138 to add your name to the list. Parking can be tight, so please carpool, if possible. Only one pass is needed per car. If you forget to sign up prior to the hike, just run by the Bartow County Parks & Rec office at 31 Beavers Dr. Cartersville, Ga 30120 to get a free parking pass.
