Need to Know

While there are no restrooms at the Julieanna Park trailhead, there are restrooms at McWhorter Park.

The park is near a busy area of town so any food, gas or shopping you need are close by.

Runner Notes

The trails are primarily asphalt, with some areas being concrete.

Description

Julieanna Park and Trail connects a parking area on Reel Road with McWhorter Park, and the loop located at McWhorter Park. The driving distance from the Julieanna Park parking to the McWhorter Park Pavilion parking area is only 0.7 miles.

The wooded part of the trail is the portion from Julieanna Park to Tolar Road. The paved trail meanders along the creek and through tall pines, giant oaks, and other species. Most of the trail is quiet and secluded, with a few benches along the way for resting.

The McWhorter Park portion is open and flat, winding around the baseball field and making a loop around the park area where families picnic, play and walk. Lots of walkers use this trail but don’t venture to the more secluded areas on the other side of Tolar Road.

If you're in town for a visit and need a place to run, this is a good choice. The longer trails in town are over three miles long if you are wanting a more challenging run.

Flora & Fauna

The Julieanna Park portion is home to a large variety trees, shrubs, and vines. Large pine trees keep the park green all year. The huge oaks, sweetgum, and hickory provide a canopy in the summer and fall colors in the fall. Magnolias and River Birch can be found in the low area near the creek. Birds, rabbits and deer are the most likely wildlife you'll possibly see here. At night, there are raccoons, opossum and armadillo. Snakes and lizards can be very common during warmer times of the year. Beware of the poisonous snakes that are common here: water moccasins, copperheads, and timber rattlers.
