Current Trail Status

In order to maintain the integrity of our trails, trails may be temporarily closed or under restricted use advisories throughout the year. Temporary closures are usually due to maintenance; restricted use advisories are usually due to weather.

For more information and any questions, please call the Trails and Open Space Supervisor at 706-613-3620.

Slippery When Wet

Due to the recent heavy rains, flooding and freezing temperatures, please be aware that some areas of the trails maybe prone to icing over. Please use caution when using the trail and crossing any wet surfaces.

Alert Icon

Watch for construction off East Broad Street by the Firefly Trailhead. Construction delays have caused this section to be closed for longer than originally expected. There is still access to the trailhead but it may vary depending on the location of the construction for the day.

Alert Icon

Construction along Hoyt and Hull St means you may see large equipment use in the Pulaski Heights Trail area, please use caution. Beginning May 30th, access to Hoyt St from the trail will be temporarily closed. 

Alert Icon

Due to construction along Oconee St the East Campus Connector trailhead near the park and ride has limited access. Please use caution and follow all detour signs. Construction is anticipated to continue to the summer of 2024. The trail can also still be accessed from the Greenway and River Rd trailhead on UGA's East Campus. 

Seasonalwater droplet rains will often flood our low lying trails, especially those next to rivers or creeks. When trails flood or become impassable due to environmental conditions, this water droplet will appear next to their name below. If you are out on the trails and have found one impassable due to high water, please call us at 706-613-3620 Mon-Fri so we can update our list here. We ask that users refrain from accessing our natural surface trails during wet conditions. Trail use during wet conditions is not only hazardous, but it can seriously damage natural surface trails. It can also have a negative environmental impact.
