This trail is only available to Fernbank Museum guests. Entrance fee is $20 per person. We weren’t prepared for a $60 walk, so went elsewhere.

Beautiful place, but the $18 entrance fee is a bit steep if you're just interested in the trail.

First to Review

Some wide paths through the woods. Access is controlled so make sure you go when it is open. The entrance is not from the actual Fernbank Science Center. The Hodgson House is an interesting surprise.
