South River Trail offers a wooded route along its namesake river, about 15 miles southeast of Atlanta. On its west end is Martin Luther King Jr. High School. On its east end, it ties into the area’s extensive trail network with a connection to the Arabia Mountain Trail, which in turn connects to the Rockdale River Trail.
A disconnected 5.6-mile segment begins at the Georgia State Universty Perimeter College and follows a tree-covered path west to a point near Constitution Avenue.
In January 2018, the South River Trail was renamed the Michelle Obama Walking Trail in honor the former first lady.
Mid-trail, parking is available at the Panola Shoals Trailhead (intersection of Panola Road and Snapfinger Road).
