Trails at Dudley Park

Bring your hiking boots, running shoes, or your bike to Dudley Park and hit the trails. Just over a mile of paved multi-use trails inside the park connect to three legs of the Greenway Network including the Firefly Trail and the Northern and Southern legs of the North Oconee River Greenway. The trails are laid out over easy to moderate terrain and good for hikers, walkers, and bikers of all ages and abilities!

All trails are free to use. Bicycles must be kept on paved pathways and dogs must be leashed at all times. All park rules apply.

The historic rail line, known as the Athens Branch of the Georgia Railroad, branched off the still-active Augusta-to-Atlanta line in Union Point and passed through the towns of Woodville, Maxeys, Stephens, Crawford, Arnoldsville and Winterville on its way to Athens.

Working in cooperation with Firefly Trail, Inc., Athens-Clarke County's Leisure Services completed and opened the first quarter-mile of this improved surface trail on October 20, 2017. Starting at 800 East Broad Street the trail follows the historic Georgia Railroad corridor across the North Oconee River into Dudley Park. An additional 0.75 miles of trail between Dudley Park and the intersection of Old Winterville Road and Little Oak Street is under construction and will open in 2018.
