If it's a nice day outside, this is a wonderful place for a hike and to see the history of the Ocmulgee tribe. Self-guided tour allowed you to move at your own pace. We then took a hike along the trail!

The trail is well-maintained, and short enough (3/4 mile) for young children to walk on their own. Just be sure to bring water. It's a shared (bike/walk) trail, but I didn't see any evidence of bikes when I was there.
