The Morningside Nature Preserve is 33.1 acres of woods in northeast Atlanta that is bisected by the South Fork Peachtree Creek. There are about 2 miles of trails on both sides of the creek. The Morningside Nature Preserve has two trailheads: one at Wellbourne Road and the other at the Georgia Power Substation on Lenox Road. A suspension bridge over the creek connects the trails on both sides. Dog owners frequently bring their dogs to play on the shore and shallow water under the bridge, so the area has become known as Atlanta's "dog beach."
