A walk through historic Athens


Panel Image: Walk through historic Athens 1
It's obvious that as an exercise, walking has health benefits.  In addition, you'll find opportunities to travel and meet many friendly and interesting people from all walks of life.  You will see sights that you would normally miss when zooming by in a car.  

This 10K (6.5 mile), year ‘round walk is sanctioned by the American Volkssport Association and offers trekkers, and visitors, the opportunity to learn a little of the history of Athens, Texas while making their journey.  During their quest, walkers will meander through quiet country lanes, quaint residential neighborhoods, a beautiful city park, and historic cemetery passing a total of thirteen markers registered with the Texas Historical Commission.  Restroom facilities are marked as well.

Please note that this is not a marked trail and caution is advised on high traffic streets. 

You can use this Google Map to review the walk.
