Seasonal Picks for Athens, GA Attractions

Start Your New Year Off in the Great Outdoors of Athens

Jan 06, 2020

Start this dazzling new decade on the right foot this month with a day out in nature. Ask any local why they love Athens, and they’ll no doubt mention our close proximity to so many wonderful outdoor adventures. Birchmore Trail, situated in Memorial Park, is one of our favorite trails and perfect for a morning or afternoon visit this month. The mile-long pathway is an easy walk for beginners, families, and couples looking to get outside and enjoy the fresh air. The trail will lead you through an urban hardwood forest, winding alongside peaceful creeks, bridges, and the Great Wall of Athens. Named for the creator of the Great Wall of Athens, Fred Birchmore was a local community leader, professor, and aviator who completed the wall in his 70s. Grab your friends and family, some water, and enjoy this slice of Athens history.
