Trail has a lot of shade and water. At some spots small creeks filled with fossils run on both sides of the trail. There is also a pretty swamp area, a covered bridge with a knee-deep creek, and rolling hills and cattle to see. Lots of fun for a family.

Recommended Route:
The longer trail to the left has the small creeks, fossils and the swamp. The shorter trail to the right has the covered bridge. Do them both and picnic at the covered bridge.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Similar bike trail in Athens (in front of Lowe's). Nice large creek runs beside the trail. Lots of shade. Trail goes to a small covered bridge, and has an archery park and picnic tables at Athens High school.
