Description

The Michelle Obama Trail, just to the south-east of Atlanta, is a scenic pathway that honors the former First Lady's dedication to health and fitness initiatives.

It runs (pardon the pun) for about 3.5 miles in Clayton County, Georgia, and forms part of the larger trail network called the South River Path Trail.

The Michelle Obama part of the trail runs from Gresham Park to Georgia State University, and can be hiked in either direction.

The trail winds through lush greenery and offers a peaceful environment for hiking.

Along the way, you'll find fitness stations, benches, and informative plaques highlighting Michelle Obama's efforts to promote physical activity and healthy living.

It's a beautiful outdoor space that encourages exercise and reflection, while also paying tribute to a prominent figure in American public life.
