Trail Running in Morningside Nature Preserve
Georgia › Morningside Nature Preserve Trail
Added by Abby Smith
Relax on the shores of the South Fork Peachtree Creek. This preserved area is good for well-behaved dogs off leash.
Park your car on the residential road and look across the street into the woods for the trail. The trail winds around through a bamboo forest with streams winding in and out. The trail splits and you can either take the high road or low road closer to the river. Both trails meet back up near the river (Peachtree Creek) and the really cool suspension bridge.
From here, you can take a right towards the powerline ridge or across the bridge and wind through the lowlands to a beautiful staircase, eventually ending up at the Lenox Rd. parking area. Not recommended in summer months due to overgrown vegetation.

For what it is, it's great. You can definitely still see and hear signs of city life throughout a lot of the preserve, but it's perfect for a quick fix. It's down the street from where we live so I go here to run, let the dogs swim, read, or just when I need a little me time.
