 Our first location is for those who want to run (or walk) away. Newton Trails is a peaceful patch of woodland trails that stretches for miles. The Trails serve as a safe and convenient location for runners and bikers to enjoy the great outdoors. Sounds like the escape you need?

 Your next visit should be to the Charlie Elliot Wildlife Center, which is located in a beautiful wooded setting near Mansfield, Georgia, making it easily accessible from Atlanta, Athens and Macon.
