John Ripley Forbes Big Trees Forest Preserve is a beautiful and unique 30-acre Fulton County Tree, Plant and Wildlife Sanctuary. An oasis in a bustling city, the forest is the perfect setting for a quiet afternoon stroll. It also serves as an outdoor classroom for those looking to take a self-guided nature walk. Grab a trail guide brochure at the entrance to the forest, and follow the 15-stop watershed education tour to learn about the positive and negative effects humans have on water quality and the forest community.
