Lots of little trails on the property from wooded areas to manicured gardens. Atlanta History Center is a great place to visit, it has a lot more to offer besides the trail network.

If this is referring to the Mary Howard Gilbert Memorial Quarry Garden at the History Center, there is a trail that takes you through gardens and water areas. It is between the History Center and the Swan House. Very pretty.
This the description from their website:
The three-acre Quarry Garden shelters one of the state’s most comprehensive collections (nearly 600 species) of plants native to pre-settlement Georgia, many of which are rare and/or endangered. See plants like the Franklin Tree (Franklinia alatamaha), discovered on the banks of Georgia’s Altamaha River and now extinct in the wild; the yaupon holly (Ilex vomitoria), a signature plant of Southeastern Native Americans; and various species of native azaleas (Rhododendron spp.). Situated in the center of the garden’s serene landscape lays a glistening pond and bog garden that provides habitat for native water plants, carnivorous plants, and wild orchids while attracting birds and woodland creatures
