Hardman Farm Trail

Walk alongside history on the beautiful Helen to Hardman Heritage Trail.  This one (1) mile ADA accessible trail follows the Chattahoochee River from Hardman Farm State Historic Site to Alpine Helen.  Learn about native plants and animals, Helen’s heritage and the influences that have made this area attractive to people for over one thousand years.  Parking is located at both ends of the trail.  The trail closes at dusk and is closed to vehicle traffic.  Preserve our river by not littering.  Pet friendly.
