Little Mulberry Park Trail Now Part of National Trail System
A trail located in Little Mulberry Park in Dacula, Ga. has been designated as a National Recreation Trail.
On May 31, 2012, Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar and Director of the National Park Service Jonathan B. Jarvis announced the Karina Miller Preserve Loop Trail at Little Mulberry Park is now part of the national trail system which spans 23 states.
“Today’s trails join a network of more than 1,150 previously-designated trails that span more than 13,650 miles.” said Director Jarvis in a released statement. “As we celebrate National Trails Day on Saturday, June 2, I encourage everyone to explore a trail – new or old – and enjoy the natural world.”
The national recreation trail designation recognizes trails and trail systems that "link communities to recreational opportunities on public lands and in local parks across the nation."
Commission Chairman Charlotte Nash said Gwinnett County is very excited to be part of the national trail system.
“Little Mulberry Park is an asset to our local parks system, and the Karina Miller Preserve Loop Trail provides a wonderful opportunity for residents to enjoy Gwinnett County’s natural landscape,” Nash said.
The 890-acre Little Mulberry Park includes five miles of paved multi-purpose and soft surface trails for equestrian and hiking, pavilions, a playground, an overlook area at one of the highest elevations in Gwinnett County and the Karina Miller Nature Preserve.
