Urban Oasis: Atlanta – Lullwater Preserve @ Emory University

Tucked away in the heart of Atlanta’s Emory University campus is the urban oasis, Lullwater Preserve.  This recreational area with wooded trails and scenic lake is for the benefit and enjoyment of Emory’s students, staff and faculty.

Main access can be found off Clifton Road at the entrance to the President’s house. However, this is a footpath entrance only – no cars.  Park in one of the nearby Emory garages and walk over.

The trail itself varies between paved, dirt and woodchips.  The wooded “Hill Loop” section runs along the Clairmont Campus, then intersects with the park-like “Lake Loop”.  Total distance of the trails is nearly 3 miles.

It’s a beautiful and serene setting to meditate, study or just relax.

At the far end near Peachtree Creek, there is a suspension bridge and waterfalls.

This trail is a great way to get outside and enjoy nature!
