Naturalist Programs and the Trails of Mason Mill Park
Mason Mill Park serves as a primary trailhead for a network of some of the nicest hiking and biking trails in the county. The South Peachtree Creek PATH trail connects Mason Mill Park with Medlock Park, the Leafmore neighborhood, and Emory University. A network of soft surface trails also provides miles of hiking opportunities within Mason Mill, Ira B. Melton, and Medlock Parks.
DeKalb County Park Naturalist, Jonah McDonald, is stationed at Mason Mill Park and leads programs that are open to the public. Come take a hike or volunteer at the park. See what programs are coming up:
See something on the trails? If Ranger Jonah’s not around, use the free iNaturalist app to help figure out what you saw.
