Note: This is an "EXPLORATORY" trip. This means that there are parts of this trip, or perhaps the whole trip, that is new to your Trip Leader(s). However, they are confident that this will not be an issue.
This note is here so that you can make an informed decision. When a Trip Leader isn't personally familiar with a trip, there is an increased chance of things not going as planned and you need to be prepared. The Trip Leader may have additional details in the itinerary.


This is not a fitness hike.. rather a meander along a hiking trail to observe plants, trees, birds and other wildlife. 

We will meet at 10:30am at the Main Parking lot, see map: content/uploads/2016/12/State-Botanical-Garden-of-Georgia-Map.pdf

After introductions we will start the hike along the Orange Trail. 

We will be hiking roughly one easy mile of trail. After the hike feel free to continue hiking other trails or explore the gardens.


The State Botanical Garden of Georgia has five miles of color-coded nature trails that wind through serene natural areas that connect numerous natural features and native piedmont plant communities, including uncommon features such as: heath bluffs along the Middle Oconee River, amphibolite geology, and floodplain forest and Piedmont prairie restoration areas.

The trails are constructed on native soil, with the exception of occasional wooden bridges over streams and short boardwalks in wetland areas.
