If you have never walked around Lake Peachtree in Peachtree City, you need to give it a try.
1. It is a beautiful walk. Much of the walk is right alongside Lake Peachtree making it very scenic. I have seen ducks, geese and even the occasional turtle crossing the trail.
2. It is shady. The majority of the walk is in the shade, so it is doable even on warmer days.
3. It’s not too short, and it’s not too long. I hate repetition, so walking laps just doesn’t do it for me. This walk, between 3 and 3.5 miles is far enough that I only have to do it once, and is not too far that I am totally wiped for the rest of the day. I can decide to do a more intense workout by increasing my speed but could also take it nice and slow if I am not looking to get all sweaty!
4. Easily accessible. You can park either at the library or at All Children’s Playground where there is plenty of SAFE parking. Of course, I lock my car, but I don’t feel uneasy about leaving my car parked while we walk. If you park at the Playground you can always stay and play a while after you are finished walking.
The only issue is that you have to compete with golf cart traffic. It IS Peachtree city after all. I have found that the best time of day is around 10am. At least in my experience that has been the time with the lowest golf cart traffic.
Take a look at the route HERE. You can also use this route for jogging or biking.
I know many mammas that load the kids in the strollers and walk together.
If you need to get your walk on, I recommend trying out this route!
