No seriously. This is an actual thing, and its located right outside of Atlanta at Constitution Lakes Park.
To give you a background on where this trail started, the land that Constitution Lakes is established on is actually the old stomping ground of a 19th century bricking company called South River Brick Company. At the end of South River’s reign, the city of Atlanta flooded the land, creating what is now two small lakes and leaving behind a plethora of trash. (Don’t ask me why doll heads were a part of this trash. I have no idea).
Anyway, from what I understand, a man walking the trail didn’t like the idea of trash laying around, so he used this as an opportunity to create some awesome art that made walking the trail even cooler than it already was.
This trail is a definite must see for any tree huggers, urban explorers, art lovers, photographers, and anyone who just loves finding cool places to hike.
I also want to point out that this eerie trail can be a little difficult to get to and navigate. Depending on where you are entering Constitution Lakes Park, you could be near the entrance of the trail, or you could be about a quarter of a mile away.
No matter where you start out, though, I want to emphasize how important it is that you follow the signs (equipped with bright fishing bobbers) that have been set up for you to navigate the trail without getting lost.
The trail isn’t just a straight path like you would assume. It’s full of twists and turns that make it extremely easy to get turned around and lost if you don’t stay aware of your surroundings.
Because the trail is constantly developing and being added to, it’s so easy to spend hours sucked into the eclectic environment surrounding you, and it’s quickly becoming one of my favorite places in the Atlanta area.
If you have any other cool places like this. let me know in the comments!
