Oconee National Forest: Ocmulgee River Trail Professional Review and Guide
"Coursing through the Oconee National Forest, the ambling Ocmulgee River is a major drainage for the Piedmont and Coastal Plain regions of Georgia. Once an area of eroded farmland, the Oconee is a recovering forest with hiking and equestrian trails that skirt the Ocmulgee River through bottomland woods. These days, the trails in Oconee National Forest are primarily used for horseback riding, and several hiking paths have become overgrown and difficult to navigate. But the Ocmulgee River Trail makes for a nice walk because it offers occasional views of the water and climbs into the pine-and-hardwood hills east of the river."
