Beautiful Athens trail for a cool, or winter day. Goes back into the woods, no real roads or cars around the backside. Very peaceful.

Good place to walk when it is too muddy to hike on wooded trails. You get a good sense of different architecture in this part of Athens.

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.

WOW, what a great little gem. Very well kept up. Granted we hiked it after daily rain we have had, so some parts were a little muddy. Quite flat but the boardwalks are nice. YES this entire trail,is open. Saw one huge river otter, couple of blue herons, a turtle and a bunny. Will definately go back.

Easy and nice
