Trena's away, but we'll still play!

Dunwoody Nature Center has roughly 2.3 miles of foot-friendly paths along heavily wooded areas, giving the feeling of really being out in the woods, despite the proximity to civilization surrounding the park.  The trail system connects all the features of the Nature Center, making it easy to get from one to the other.  We'll walk the trails for 2 hours, getting in about 4.5 miles.

Because of a glitch in the registration process, we've run into the problem of having too many members added to the active list above the maximum limit of 20.  Please be aware that we will be moving members above 20 registrants to the waiting list in the order of their registration times.  People will then be added to the active list as we have withdrawals.

The park isn't far off 400/Northside Drive, making it very accessible by car. Dogs are welcome, but must be kept on leash. Disobeying park rules damages the reputation of the AOC, so please keep this in mind if you choose to bring your dog.  Let's limit the number of dogs to 3.


Required Items to Bring:

Good hiking shoes  (Wood chips on the trails.)  


Recommended Items to Bring:
Use our Event Checklists to make sure you have everything you need.
