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. Interpretive panels along the way share 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 is open from dawn to dusk. Please practice “Leave no Trace” by packing out litter and picking up after pets.
