Great hike. Half was easy, the other half moderate. Remember to bring bug spray....some of the trail follows the river.

Good urban oasis. Fantastic canopy that keeps you cool in the summer.

The most difficult trail at botanical gardens. Starts off nice with a lot of up and down. My favorite trail in Athens.

Connected Orange to Blue to White trails and back to the parking lot. Beautiful parts on each trail!! Easy and nicely maintained walking paths the whole way.

I love coming here and running the trails. You can find some amazing views here! I also came here for a yoga event over the summer and it was absolutely beautiful and totally relaxing!

This trail was great for trail running. There were hardly any rocks or stumps to trip over and there were only slight elevation changes. The trail was pretty much shaded for the most part. It was very scenic with some wooden bridges crossing over small streams. Also, some of the trail follows right along the Middle Oconee River. We went on a chilly Saturday morning, it was about 50 degrees. There were not too many people out so it was the perfect blend of feeling isolated without complete isolation.

Most of the trail is shaded. Went in August and passed only a couple of people along the way.

I have hiked the Georgia State Botanical Gardens often and it offers such wonders. I also done over 50 paintings of my discoveries here.

I used to run these trails all the time when I went to UGA. I like to do the widest loop possible- orange and white trails. Some parts get pretty technical but the whole trail system is beautiful and well maintained. Athens is so lucky to have this!

Love this park and these trails. They are easy to run on, and give you tons of options to shorten the loop if your legs need a shortcut.

I've taken my kids on the 5 mile hike, and they did great.
