The picturesque Oxford Trail winds along Turkey Creek through the heart of the charming southern town of Oxford. The wooded pathway runs behind the Oxford College campus and offers a kiosk with information about the native plants and animals that you may see. Along the way, benches provide spots to rest and a trail spur will take you to Old Church, where a large deck beneath a tree canopy offers a place to picnic. The church, built in 1841, is a historic landmark and has two front doors where men and women once entered separately.
From I-20 east or west, take exit 90 to US-278 (Covington). Go approximately 1.3 miles and turn left on GA Highway 81/Emory St. Go 1.6 miles and turn left on Fletcher St. (Watch for signs pointing to the Old Church. Fletcher St dead ends into Wesley St at the Old Church. The trail is behind the church.
Parking is not available at Old Church. Visitors may park at the Clark Street crossing or leave their vehicle at Oxford City Hall (110 W Clark St) and walk two blocks to access the trail.
