Kolomoki Mounds State Historic Park Trails Professional Review and Guide

"This unusual park is an important archaeological site as well as a scenic recreation area. The mounds here were built between AD 250 and 950 by the Swift Creek and Weeden Island Indians. Among the mounds is Georgia’s oldest great temple mound. The park museum is designed so that you are actually inside an excavated portion of a mound.

Along with the American history and artifacts, the park offers four hikes totaling 7.1 miles. Two of the trails take you along the edge of Lakes Kolomoki and Yahola, beside a wetland habitat with marsh grasses and shrubs. The other two loop trails offer views of the mounds, with explanatory displays, as well as a walk through an upland white oak forest. The featured hike is on Spruce Pine Trail. The forest is dominated by large spruce pines, mixed with loblolly pines, magnolias, water oaks, and dogwoods. Wild azaleas are abundant in the understory."
