Antebellum Trail Bicycle Route

Discover the Grit and Grace of Georgia's Antebellum Trail of Historic Towns

From rolling hills and pastures to striking pre-Civil War homes, the Old South comes alive along the Antebellum Trail.

Meandering through the rich red clay of Georgia's heartland, the Antebellum Trail traces towns that remarkably escaped the wrath of Union General Sherman during his March to the Sea.

The journey down the Antebellum Trail from Athens to Macon leads more than 100 miles, to a time and place far away — to the genteel, slow-moving Old South.
