Bear Hair Gap Trail is a moderate hike in Vogel State Park near Atlanta, Georgia. This trail is kid friendly and dog friendly, but your furry kids must be on leash. The park says "beginning at the Backcountry Trailhead, follow the green-blazed access trail to where the green-blazed Bear Hair Gap Trail begins its nearly 4 mile loop up and over the lower ridges of Blood Mountain. Wildflowers abound in season and long-distance vistas can be seen after the leaves have fallen. The trail leaves the park and travels onto the Chattahoochee National Forest which is open to hunting. It is advisable to wear bright colored clothing, other than white or safety orange vests during hunting season." There is camping available in Vogel State Park.
