I visited Autrey Mill for the first time and will definitely return! The park is now open during the Covid crisis just not the visitor center, but there are maps and helpful info displayed as well as a cell phone tour available. It’s great for families or solo visitors such as myself. There is a butterfly garden, animals for viewing, and multiple trail options. I chose the Preserve Perimeter trail which follows a creek for much of the path. Really nice views and woodsy while the path is well maintained with signage. What a nice nature getaway right in town!!

This is special moment: due to corona virus, park visitors are not welcomed anymore. At the entrance from Old Alabama Road, there's a sign , it reads: "Come Take A Hike". But park's main gate was closed, only the entrance to trailhead was still open. This is the most family friendly park nearby. I used to bring kids here to do volunteer work, there were also ducks, chicken, rabbit. Today we were the only visitors of the park. The three big white ducks in the park still enjoy their quiet times, and 4 or 5 white-tailed deer ran and jumped passing us in the woods. I feel sad, all nice places are closed due to the fetal pandemic virus, our living space is shrinking. I wish everyone safely pass this dark moment and move on.

I love Autrey Mill Nature Preserve. It's tucked away off of Old Alabama Road. Locals knows it, I live not too far away. I love it here with it's many trails to explore. The Mill is constantly developing, with new areas. There's only two factors that disappointed me. One, it's gets Very Muddy in some of the lower landscapes, so beware, you will get dirty. My dog loves it. Second, they removed the old "church" building, a single unit, "bombed" out church/school building that to me, had some historical value. But definitely worth a visit and explore.

You can walk the 3 miles of wooded trails. In the main park, you have 6 tour stops. You can dial into their tour information using your cellphone. See an old country store, an 1860's country church, a small visitor's center, an 1880's era home, a program barn, a tenant structure, and a farm museum of tools and equipment. We attended their farm heritage day so extra activities included bluegrass music, concessions, camp cooking, arts and crafts for the children. We most enjoyed seeing the children learn how to make a cornhusk doll, a tussy mussy and even drill a hole in a table using a hand-turned drill. We also saw a craft using wood blocks, photos and shellac. The visitor center has a few snakes and turtles to see as well as three goats, a rabbit and some ducks. Bring the bug spray if it's a muggy day. This place with a history of gold is today an educational goldmine for groups such as scouts, homeschool, social studies and history students of all ages.The property has so much potential for group gatherings. It is funded by memberships, donations, program fees, and business sponsorships. The parking lot is gravel. The ground in the main area has steps and uneven brick paths. The buildings include added ramps for entry and exit. Located in Johns Creek, Ga near historic Roswell, Ga.

We visited the nature preserve on July 6th. We bought feed to feed the ducks and chickens, watched them feed the snakes and we petted and fed the goats. The have an audio tour of the buildings and walking trails. They were very helpful with answering questions regarding the animals and we took a lot of pictures to remember our outing at the nature preserve. We will be going again when the temperature is not as hot to walk the trails. It is educational and a must do with your kids.
