Helen to Hardman Heritage Trail

The Helen to Hardman Heritage Trail is one of the nicest walking/hiking trails in Northeast Georgia, following the Chattahoochee River from the edge of downtown Helen to the Hardman Farm State Historic Site.

Much of the prime riverside property was donated to the Trust for Public Land in 2007 by Ted Turner and his foundations, insuring forever its protection from development. The one mile trail (2 miles round trip) is also ADA accessible.

Lush vegetation and pristine river views can be found all along the paved trail. We also found a few bear scratches, so be careful on the trail.

In Helen, access the trail from the parking lot just below the Helen Tubing & Water Park off Edelweiss Strasse.

    My husband and I walked the 1 mile trail last weekend. It seems like this trail as only be there 3 or 4 years. So I was wondering when it was built? I have been trying to find the answer but not able too. We loved walking the trail. So beautiful and easy to walk. We will do it again. Next time we want to tour the Hardman’ farm.
