Description

Looking for a pawsome place to walk your pooch? Consider taking your furry BFF for a stroll on one of the trails of the Lullwater Preserve located on the Emory University’s North Decatur campus. These furrific trails will capture your pup’s full attention!

This 154 acre preserve is a wooded haven. Even though it’s near a busy section of the city, your doggo will feel miles away. Start your adventure on President’s Loop. Your history loving hound will be interested to know that this trail passes a 1926 Tudor Mansion. Years ago, this impressive abode was home to Walter Candler, a son of Coca Cola’s founder. Today, it houses the president of Emory University. Since this trail is only .8 miles, your doggo will pawbably want to continue their walk.

The aptly named Lake Loop circles Candler Lake. Your pooch will absolutely love trotting around this delightful path. On the north end of the lake, there is a dam and spillway. The rushing water once flowed into a powerhouse that provided electricity for the Candler estate. Not much is left of the powerhouse, but it’s still worth checking out. A wood and steel bridge allows you and your pooch to cross the water and continue your hike.

The third official trail is the Hill Loop. It runs about 1.2 miles around the pawperty. Your pup’s nose will get right to work as they track all the different scents of the forest. If your doggo is quiet, you may even see an owl or two. Of course, you can mix and match the loops to create a route that is just right for your four legged companion. Be sure to have plenty of water on hand, and don’t forget the clean up bags.

Make no mistake, your pup will go mutts over the Lullwater Preserve Trails!
