Ocmulgee Heritage Trail

The Ocmulgee Heritage Trail is a greenway type trail produced by a public/private partnership. NewTown Macon plans trail expansions and improvements and raises private funds to support these goals. Once trail is complete, they turn over the improvements to Macon-Bibb County to operate in perpetuity as a public park.

The OHT currently has approximately 11 miles of trail open.  The trail stretches from Central City Park downtown, across the river to Ocmulgee National Monument, and north along the river up to Amerson Park.  You can view the map on the NewTown Macon website here.  Note: the section between Amerson Park and Riverside Cemetery is shown as future trail on their map, but it is currently under construction and is rideable, tho depending on construction activities it is sometimes closed while work is being performed.  This section is dirt, not pavement like the majority of the trail.

There are plans to eventually extend the trail further north from Amerson, and the Central Georgia Rail-to-Trail Association is working to build a 33 mile trail from the OHT in Macon all the way over to Milledgeville.
