Ocmulgee Bluff Trail System is the jumping off point for the Ocmulgee River Horse, Bike and Hiking Trail. This area has parking for a large number of vehicles and horse trailers and can accommodate large groups of riders. The trail generally follows the Ocmulgee River, but does move away from the river on some recently added loops. This trail is the compilation of several smaller trails to comprise nearly 30 miles of riding, biking and hiking adventure and pleasure.
