Best Place to See What Atlanta was Like Before Humans Trashed It: Fernbank Forest

Staff Pick

Before the Internet, electricity, roads, Scarlett O’Hara, George Washington or Christopher Columbus, metro Atlanta was a hardwood forest. Although Atlanta is full of wooded areas, few of them date beyond the last century. There’s really only one place in the city to immerse yourself in what Atlanta was like before humans started messing with it: FERNBANK FOREST. At 65 acres, it’s the largest tract of undisturbed, old-growth forest inside the Perimeter and is home to animals such as mink, shrews, three types of owls and even copperhead snakes.
