Outdoor Recreation


The Ridges at Paris Mountain offers residents direct access to Paris Mountain State Park, a 1,540-acre playground with activities including hiking, biking, swimming and picnicking.

The park’s eight-acre lake offers swimming and fishing, with additional fishing opportunities available in a 15-acre reservoir located at the back of the park. Canoes, kayaks and pedal boats are available for rent in the spring and fall.

Paris Mountain State Park is also the perfect spot for picnics and bird watching. A variety of hawks, woodpeckers and evening owls are prevalent in the park. For those wanting more strenuous activities, Paris Mountain State Park has 15 miles of hiking and biking trails, along with a 1.2-mile self-interpretive nature trail that loops around the lake.
