Located on Emory's Campus just off Clifton Rd. Park at Druid Hills HS during non-school hours for a convenient starting point.

Description
Miles of trails for running located near downtown Atlanta! Swinging bridge, creek and lake views, and mill ruins are just some of the things you'll see in Lullwater. Trails are double and singletrack and connect to VA Medical Center. Several 5Ks are held within the paved and dirt paths in the park during the year.

Review: You never get that trail feeling, the connection or zone. It maybe the heavy traffic of walkers and day cruisers. I would give it more stars if there were more options as far side trails go.

Review: This is an okay trail. Very flat, very fast, it's like the fischer price of trails--basic. I tend to go for more challenging trails, but when you're in the city what can you do?

Review: This is a fantastic and peaceful park with excellent trail and pavement running. I began and ended on the trails, but the section in between is beautiful and around a very serene lake with great paths. As a female, I felt very safe on the run since there were people about every 500 yards. Great park, great run!

Review: Just got back from a run here. Pretty good spot within the city. Good clean trails but be ready for a trek if you get off on some of the side trails. Not sure if I was still in the park at a few points, but I found my way out and back to my car, so it's all good.

Review: This is a great place to run for all levels of trail running. There are cleared "jeep trails" and well traveled singletracks. There are also a lot of small trails jetting off the main trail if you want to explore more and enjoy a little more of an overgrown trail. I did follow an overgrown trail for about half a mile before running into a fence and had no way around it but to go back the way I came. Even though the top of the fence had barbwire I wasn't going to turn around. Made it safely over but it wasn't fun. Great place to get in the forest and take some pressure off from city living; not to mention your joints. Check it out for sure.

Review: The best place to trail run inside the perimeter! Trails flow well and there are a few big hills to get your heart pumping. Scenery can't be beat, my new favorite place to run.
