We've been here several times as it is very close to our home. Walking the trails with our dogs (on leash) has always been enjoyable. This is not a large nature center so everything can be seen in less than 2 hours. also, the trails are not that long so they qualify as a stroll rather than hike. The down... More

Not all that big but you can't beat the nature. I wish they had a little more to do but you can't please everyone.

A wonderful forest preserve with a flowing creek bottom, great forest paths. Heavily wooded enclave in Johns Creek with rustic but well constructed picnic shelters and tables.

It was a lovely little park with marked and unmarked trails or walks. It's conveniently located right off Old Alabama Road between Jones Bridge & Medlock Bridge Roads. It's good for people like me, who, because of back pain issues, cannot do a real long or mountainous hike.

This site contains a lovely hike just perfect for a two-year old, complete with sticks to hold and a creek to cross. We saw a towhee as well as other birds, deer tracks, and a few spring windflowers. Little boys spent a while feeding the two resident ducks, and carried on quite a conversation with them.

Aurty Mill Nature Center is a wonderful development allowing those who like to cycle, run, roller blade or walk to do so in the quiet feel of nature. Extremely expansive so you can meet numerous people but you don't feel crowed.

Beautifully and lovingly restored historical buildings from the area include a turn of the century farmhouse, a small chapel, sharecropper's cabin and more. Hike the forest trail and be amazed at the age of this forest... great for kids and families. Bring your well behaved dogs on leashes.

The whole area is very well maintained. It's not huge, but big enough for casual hiking. There is a nice creek running through it that's excellent for skipping rocks. The exhibits and historic buildings are very small, but nicely done.

My wife and I, septuagenarians, love the trails and the serenity. For a relatively easy hike/walk through an historic farm, with well-preserved and documented buildings and sites, it is a welcome asset in suburban Atlanta, providing a taste of Georgia's not-so-distant agrarian past.

My wife and I started with the River Trail, and enjoyed a few quiet, peaceful moments alone with God's creation! We also saw two deer while we were on the trail! The trails are fairly well maintained, the bridges are still in good condition, and nature is always quiet and peaceful!
