I passed through Macon on my way to Florida and took a break to walk this trail. It is pretty nice, with a good amount of greenery and views of the water. In thr morning there were people walking and jogging but it never got too crowded. Not amazing but definitely worth doing.

We like to come here at least once a week with our babies and walk them in the stroller. Very beautiful and pleasant walk. A nice play area for kids as well.

A friend and I went here this evening to enjoy a fast food meal we'd purchased around the corner. The parking lot had plenty of open spaces, and the nature trail is multi-use for walkers, joggers, and cyclists. So you might want to stay to the right as you go, so that people can pass on the left. Nice trail... More

We thought this would be a bit more scenic than it was, but it was a nice, clean, and safe pathway to get some exercise along the river bank. would have been perfect for a bike ride.

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

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.
