Oxford Trail Description

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.

Parking and Trail Access

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.

 

Oxford Trail Reviews

Respite from these Troubling Times

What a delightful break from from these troubling times! No crowds, no noise, just a beautiful walk through the woods. Although we encountered no one, this is a trail that allows for easy social distancing.

Short but sweet

We are local and enjoy this trail for pushing our toddler while walking the dogs or some light cycling. We loop it by way of the small roads that have little to no car traffic. Great shady trail so makes a nice outing even in the mid-day of summer. Parking at Oxford city hall is convenient and makes about a 2.5 mile loop.

Needs Parking

Nice trail, but needs parking added at or along one or more streets that approach or cross it. This limits handicap access as well as reduces its value to people with limited time who wish to take a quick, perhaps lunchtime, walk. The trail wasn't cheap to build, so the addition of parking would create a better return on the public (and private) investment.

Fun but no Parking

The kids and I had a fun ride. It is nice and shady and they were even working on the path. One MAJOR piece of missing information is that there is NO PARKING at the church! We turned around and just parked 2 blocks away (one over, one up) at the Oxford Police Station/City Center. It would be nice if the trail made a loop. The hills were easy for the 12 & 14 year olds, but the 9 year old struggled a little (walked up a few).

Accordion

Great little trail but watch the slick bridges!!

Very nice trail, would be awesome if it was longer! The trail is mostly downhill if ridden north to south and provides a decent little workout if ridden south to north. The trail is nice and shady, but unfortunately the shade combined with all of the rain lately has made the bridges very slick.

Mountain biking on concrete

Although it follows a creek, it was not graded to take advantage of that fact. It is quite hilly.
