Best Trailheads for your Bike Trip in the National Heritage Area

best trailheads

Springtime is here – and that means that it’s time to get outside! The National Heritage Area has over 34 miles of bike trails stretching from historic downtown Lithonia all the way to the Monastery of the Holy Spirit. We are here to help you pick the best trailheads around the AMNHA for your biking adventures.

The trails are an important part of the community and are well-designed to create a family-friendly environment for thousands of joggers, walkers, bikers, and skaters from all walks of life to escape the roads and hit the trails for travel and recreation.   

Here’s a map of some of the best, least crowded trailheads for biking (as well as walking, jogging, and more) in the NHA:
