As far as trails inside the perimeter go this one is pretty good, some cool man made structures along the way. At the end of the day its Decatur though, it only offers so much. Nonetheless this one is 10 min from where I live so I will be back.

A very scenic and lovely place hidden in Emory's Clairmont campus. Most of the loop is unpaved except for the section near the Candler Lake but it's well maintained and labelled. Parking is free in Clifton School and Starvine Deck on weekends and after 5 on weekdays. It's also possible to park near the main campus/University Hospital and access through the gate on Clifton Road. Although the park is only for Emory's staff and students, this rule is never enforced so you'll see many local residents there. When most students are gone during the pandemic, the park itself is much quieter now.

Great running trail especially if you are here to run early in the morning. Park at the Hahn Woods and take the trail in the woods connecting Lullwater Preserve, or take the road to get there. A short 0.6-1 mile walk/run either way. Wish there was a parking availability closer.

There are a lot of missing bridges and “trails” that are not trails just construction paths.

Trail was great. Would have gotten 5 stars but too many Karen’s.

Mostly dirt trails along river. One really long suspension bridge that wobbles when you walk on it. One metal pipe crossing so dog had to swim/leap across stream. From parking plus entire trail we recorded over 4 miles. Next time look for Hahn Woods parking rather than Emory Campus parking.

So sad to see such neglected and sloppy trail... surprised how unkempt it was... Paved parts were ok but the actual trail very disappointing...

Great trail for a walk or run (definitely not a hike). Some paved, some wooded trail, a cool suspension bridge, plus a lake and waterfall. Close to Emory, but on certain parts of the trail you feel like you’re in the middle of the woods. Perfect for a midweek “getaway” since it’s so easily accessible.

Great trail on Emory campus in Decatur. Perfect for families. Busy.

Beautiful trail with lots of diversity: lake, cascades, history, meadow and woodlands all within a stones throw of Emory .

I definitely would not call this a hiking trail. It's pretty much flat and there is no use for a hiking stick. I brought one because the trail was listed as hiking and moderate. This is a good place for trail running and walking. I still enjoyed the scenery but I was prepared for a hike.

Not sure why this is marked moderate. When you find the actual loop, it’s pavement. Great for runs and fast walking as the path is very wide so foot traffic isn’t a problem.

Great walk through the city and right behind Emory University. We parked at Druid Hills high school and walked behind the science center over the bridge.Enjoyable mostly flat some shade some sun.

It’s very pretty and semi-flat, but this particular route was too hard to follow. There aren’t any markings and it’s confusing.

This is the first time in all the years I’ve lived here that I hit this trail. Fantastic. Lots of water-dog needs bath now-but I enjoyed hearing it flow.
