Amazing Arachnids Program & Hike
September 14th, 2019

Did you know spiders are arachnids, but not all arachnids are spiders? Scorpions, ticks & mites are also arachnids, which get a lot of bad press. But most of the carnivorous arachnid order is harmless to people and help control insects and pests. Our educator will have a couple of unusual arachnids on display during the presentations which will be ongoing 10 am to 5 pm.

The Preserve will be open 10 am – 5 pm for hiking on your own. Admission is $3 per person/max $10 per family or FREE to members and includes parking & hiking. Visitors may hike one of the Preserve’s three trails that range in length from a stroll of .25 mi to a 1.7 mi loop trail around the lake.

Leashed dogs are welcome, but the trails do not accommodate strollers AND DOGS ARE NOT ALLOWED IN THE LAKE.

Please arrive no later than 4 pm so you will have time to finish your hike before we close.

Directions: We are located off Douthit Bridge Rd, accessed only from Hwy 61 (between Cartersville & Dallas). Since our location is off the beaten path, many map programs do NOT provide accurate directions. Use the info on our Contact Us page. Or for GPS, use "Douthit Bridge Rd, Dallas, 30132", then follow signs.
