Short and sweet. Nice cabin toward the end of the trail. Educational markers along the way about plants.

This isn’t really a trail- it’s a walk through the garden and behind the old mansion. The lawn and building are very well cared for. There’s a huge children’s house that really creeped me out and seems like the beginning of a horror movie. There was a cool model-T my friend and i climbed in, but it was mostly exploring and not much walking/no hiking because it was so short....

This was a lovely place to escape the heat and humidity that falls on Atlanta in the summer

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
