 Situated on the beautiful Alcovy River and its Cedar Creek tributary, Harbins Park is Gwinnett County's largest park - also one of its newest, opening in 2009.  In its nearly 2000 acres of wooded rolling hills it boasts 17 miles of hiking, biking and horseback trails. Facilities include restooms, changing rooms, a picnic pavilion and water founain. 


We will hike the figure 8 loop shown in the detail below . The smaller loop (gray) is paved, but the larger loop is nice, dirt single-track.


A Trail map can be found here (click on "Harbins Map JPG").  Note that Luke Edwards Rd and the parking lot are at the top center of the map.
