If you want to get technical, southeastern DeKalb’s Arabia Mountain Trail system—fifteen-plus paved miles winding through two nature preserves between Lithonia and Stockbridge—changes names at the county line. The Rockdale River Trail continues along the South River for five miles and, by next summer, will reach Conyers’ Monastery of the Holy Spirit—where, if you want to get spiritual, you can pray with Trappist monks and buy a bonsai tree.
Though short, the South Peachtree Creek Trail offers a romantic landscape—over active CSX railroad tracks, past graffiti-covered ruins of the old Decatur Waterworks (provider of Decaturites' drinking water from 1906 through the 1940s), through the lush trees along Peachtree Creek—and is book-ended by the thwop of tennis balls and the crack of aluminum bats at Mason Mill and Medlock parks, respectively. The winding boardwalk path is a sight in itself.
