Most of the trail is shaded. Went in August and passes only a couple along the way.

I have hiked the Georgia State Botanical Gardens often and it offers such wonders. I also done over 50 paintings of my discoveries here.

I used to run these trails all the time when I went to UGA. I like to do the widest loop possible- orange and white trails. Some parts get pretty technical but the whole trail system is beautiful and well maintained. Athens is so lucky to have this!

Love this park and these trails. They are easy to run on, and give you tons of options to shorten the loop if your legs need a shortcut.

I've taken my kids on the 5 mile hike, and they did great.
