This trail is fun and easy to ride. Go for a cruise next to the river and under the trees. No worries about cars (although It crosses public streets in about 3 places). Only a short hop up the hill to downtown Athens.

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!

Great trails! There's a choice of short, moderate (white) or long (blue). I did moderate with my dog the other day and it was 6.7 miles according to my GPS tracking. Nicely maintained trails and easy to maneuver even after heavy rain. CAREFUL: A medium sized dog came charging from the woods from one of the bordering houses at about the 3 mile marker near the halfway point.
