A breathtaking avenue sheltered by live oaks and Spanish moss leads to the tabby ruins of Wormsloe, a colonial estate dating back to the 1700s. In the visitor center, tour a museum and watch a 13-minute film about the site. The interpretive nature trail (0.8 miles) leads past the tabby ruins along the marsh to the Colonial Life Area where, where during programs and special events, demonstrators in period dress exhibit the tools and skills of colonial Georgia.

Many more nature trails are also accessible, ranging from 3 miles (Battery Trail) to 0.2 miles (Yellow Trail).

To enter the visitor center with your pet, dog must be able to be carried.
Dogs must be leashed on all trails.
Please clean up after your pet.

    They love dogs!

    Beautiful park with miles of walking trails that wander through the woods and along the river/marsh. The rangers have dogs and love dog and human visitors. They give guided tours of the historic area. Trails are shaded all day and cooler for dog walking.

    Calming walk

    Beautiful and historic walk. Be sure to explore some of the offshoots of the main trails. We got a beautiful view of the marsh on one of these off shoots.

    Great place to take a short walk in a shady forested area while visiting a very interesting piece of history.

    I originally planned on spending a day out at the estate but plans got changed and I ended up running out there about 2 hours before it closed. It was still worth the $10 admission fee. Just absolutely gorgeous grounds and dogs welcome on all of the trails. I explored what a I could with my chocolate lab and it was very enjoyable. Definitely worth the admission and the short drive from historic downtown.

    This is a grade A dog boner Haven!!

    Wow! What a great place for dogs. Scooter (my 2 year old Chinese Crested) and I came here last week. It was sunny and the rays were shining through the canopy of live oaks (I call them love oaks because I love them so much!!). It was beautiful. The walk would have been quite long for Scooter but now ever since the accident and with Scooter's new wheels it was fine. Scooter had both his back legs broken so now he has a MRD system to help support his back legs with wheels. Overall, the staff was friendly and accepted Scooter even though he is a little different. I think Scooter would agree when I say it was a 5 boner day:)
