Love bringing my girls out here to get some fresh air and play in nature!

What a gem, thank you Boy Scouts, and right next to one of the busiest shopping areas in North GA. The condition was phenomenal and has a swamp like feel to it, a welcome change from the usual wooded trails. The real treat about this trail is the secrecy - can barely tell where the trail begins, then poof, wonderland. The Boy Scouts have marked some key trees if you want some education while you in there, and because it seems hidden, traffic is low, wildlife is high ;)

Great trail to walk anytime of the year, beautiful all year round.

In May 2003, the Mall of Georgia Partners donated this 88-acre tract as a wetlands/wildlife preserve to the Georgia Wildlife Federation. GWF volunteers and most notably, Eagle Scouts, have been instrumental in developing the trail and maintaining the property.

The nature area itself lies within a basin formed by Ivy Creek and its tributary, Little Ivy Creek. Located below street level within the the I-85 / GA20 interchange and the Mall of Georgia Boulevard, traffic sounds from the nearby mall and freeway are muffled. Although the Ivy Creek Greenway connects with the trail, the most direct access is by using the stairs located off the Mall of Ga Blvd (GPS 34.062015, -83.982970).

The nature preserve has an almost surreal look about it. Its look not only changes with the seasons but is also greatly influenced throughout the year by the amount of precipitation. The boardwalks and trail structures keep things interesting along the way. I highly recommend this trail for children. Just remember to take water and relieve yourself before you venture out, as there are no fountains or restrooms here.
