Apart from the actual environmental center, there are various interlocking trails from .5 to 1.5 miles long. They range from easy to moderate to difficult and make for a very fun experience that you can make as short or as long as you want.
Very easy walk... We trekked to the Wildlife Overlook Trail (unpaved 0.8 mile extension) and came back... Just over 2 miles for us. We saw several people on bikes and walking... But we also had a good bit of privacy so it was nice.
The directions take you to the Water Treatment Center, so you CANNOT enter there (the signs are not to be ignored). Instead go down Buford Hwy and the entrance is literally JUST past the I-85 South exit... As in you kind of have to turn into the traffic coming off the interstate to get to the very tiny unmarked parking lot. There were other cars there too, but it seemed like there should be a better entrance somewhere!
Overall it's a nice little slice of secluded woods in a very developed area. If you're looking for an easy walk close by and if you can find your way there, I'd definitely recommend!

Good. The entrance that it takes you to on through the app is a restricted place... So I found another entrance but the trail was amazing. Got some amazing photographs which was my main purpose of going!
Why are there huge signs stating it's a restricted area and anyone caught trespassing will be sentenced to a court hearing. I don't recall what it said exactly but that is the gist of it. Huge yellow signs on each side of the road...super weird.
A simply delightful trail, though it's not really a trail; it's more of a paved walkway through the woods. Delightful though because it is sparsely used, at least when we were there on a warm Sunday afternoon
