If you complete the entire trail, which is miles, you get a shirt :) It is beautiful and educational and takes you through the best spots. Take a camera :)

Close to downtown and the Marriott, this nice greenway winds along the river with benches, playground and information kiosks. We did not have a chance to explore the whole distance but enjoyed the several miles we walked.

Small gift shop, trail to walk around mounds and observe scenic area. Preservation of this area was required to keep the area from being destroyed.

Went biking on the trail. Nice views of river and other scenery. Different types of trees are identified throughout the trail. Additionally, the trail has distance markers throughout. Very easy trail to bike as the paved section is completely flat. The actual map lists the mileage at 11 however, it appears not to be complete yet as my wife and... More

Ocmulgee Heritage Trail is a great place to go for something different. The scenery is beautiful and peaceful with security so you can feel safe.

Nice place to walk, run, just get out for a little while. Needs more security, gets a little unsafe sometimes, but overall a good place to relax and enjoy nature.

This park is a wonderful way to walk along the riverfront in downtown Macon and view the Ocmulgee river. The Ocmulgee is a little appreciated river that winds through Macon from Jackson Lake where is begins. It is the drinking source for Macon and a pleasant stroll along its shores awaits you. Great place to walk, jog, or ride bikes.... More

Been here a number of time. This is a nice place to take the kids on a little walk or short bike ride. There is a little park with swings etc for the kids to play. Pretty safe during the day but gets a little iffy at evening. The bums start to show up as the sun goes down.

If it is not blistering hot, this is a great place to take the family and enjoy the day. There are walking trails and bike paths in addition to the other amenities. If nothing else it is a great place for a picnic.
