Metro Atlanta is situated in the Appalachian Piedmont, featuring pine and hardwood-covered hills, rocks, and roots, all criss-crossed by water. Any trail built in this area may start out smooth, but it won't remain that way long. Water and wear bring out the natural features of the soil, making even beginner trails a bit of a challenge.

Wildlife abounds throughout all of the trail systems. Be prepared to stop for turkeys, turtles, deer, chipmunks, squirrels, coyotes, snakes, lizards, foxes, raccoon and opossums.
