Gorgeous trails, paved is about 2.5 miles (and has a fork with 2 different directions) but if you need more just hop on the the many other dirt trails connected. They are challenging and totally worth your effort as the scenery is just beautiful! The suspension bridge at the end of Ivy Creek Greenway (going right, not toward Buford) was... More

I was toting a 9 & 11 year old on a Rainey day, for something to do. Cost was realatively inexpensive, the place has many unquie rooms with interactive things do. I was ashamed that many did not work, mostly the computer guides were useless. This place would be great for adults and older teens that have had a few... More

Starting at the Heritage Center and following the paved trail to the bridge then follow the river under 85 and it turns to gravel follow that all the way to the drain pipe at Gravel Springs and back is about 5 or 6 miles down side it is not a loop trail and would not recommend walking it alone

I attended a meeting here and it is a beautiful facility. The staff was extremely helpful and I would definitely like to return some time (not for business) and explore it further.

We have walked here a few times. It is very clean, quiet, and has a nice variety of terrain on the trails.

I brought my grandkids there aged 11 and 13 and they had so much fun. First you go through a training period where they show you how to hook your clips. The trainers were very patient and encouraging. There are 5 levels. It takes a while to get the hang of it, but once you do it is really fun,... More

The center is very educational, teaching students about weather and animals. The trails are perfect to spot wildlife on, but that isn't the star of this place. Hidden in the woods, lies an adventure hidden in the trees: zip lines and rope courses. These challenge your physical strength, as well as mental if you're afraid of heights like I am.... More

Took my two daughters for the morning and was not really impressed. Expensive for the amount of exhibits they offer. Won't be back.

This center is surrounded by a wooded area which contains trails of varying degrees of difficulty. Walkers may choose to remain on several paved paths, but there are also unpaved, strenuous and moderate paths to enjoy. Unfortunately, the holder for trail maps (located near the parking lot) is frequently empty. Also, the ongoing construction in the area adds noise and... More

The Center was very easy to find and very interesting. We were there for a wedding reception but I would love to go back for the full educational experience
