Trail Running in Morningside Nature Preserve

5 Miles Round Trip - Loop Trail

Morningside Nature Preserve Trail - Search Nearby - 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.
