Six wooded hiking trails including ADA-compliant River Boardwalk Trail cover beautiful Georgia Piedmont forest and can easily make visitors feel that they are far away from the city. All trails feature an abundance of plant and wildlife, year-round birding, and are perfect for beginners and experienced hikers.


We’ve partnered with American Adventure Park Systems and Historic Banning Mills to bring you an experiential nature adventure in the trees! See nature from a different perspective and get a bird’s eye view of the beautiful Chattahoochee Nature Center from the tree canopy.


The Wildlife Department at the Chattahoochee Nature Center focuses on education and rehabilitation. Dozens of species of native Georgia raptors and reptiles call CNC home.


CNC is proud to be involved with the protection, restoration and safeguarding of the many rare and endangered plant species of Georgia. Whether your interest is in gardening, horticulture, education, or science, CNC will keep you engaged with nature.


When you canoe with CNC, your naturalist will enlighten you on the cultural and natural history of the river. You’ll learn about important ecological relationships and environmental issues that affect this endangered river, while enjoying its peaceful qualities.
