Published 4:38 pm Tuesday, May 8, 2018

Attapulgus’s own Elephant Refuge North America (ERNA) invites you and your family to discover the Refuge’s gently rolling hills, lush pastures and dense forests from an elephant’s point of view. The inaugural HIKE THE ELEPHANT TRAILS is scheduled for Saturday, May 26, 2018, from 9:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. at ERNA, 404 Laslie Rd, Attapulgus, GA, 39815. Register on line.

The hike is rated easy to difficult with the trails traversing 750 acres of forest, pastures and two lakes. You will be the first to enjoy this scenic beauty before elephants arrive. For the more adventurous hikers, there are offshoots of the main moderate trails that dead-end at the bottom of hills thus providing uphill challenges.

You are also invited to bring a lunch to enjoy at Elephant Lake.
