Opened officially in September 2004, Little Mulberry Park is one part of a major park-building program begun by the county a few years ago.
Phase one of the Little Mulberry Park encompasses 485 acres of the 890-acre park, and features five miles of trails including two one-mile paved multi-purpose trails, and a handicap-accessible trail around a pond.
The park has a combined multiuse/pedestrian trail experience which offers a 2-mile hike through a near old growth forest to unspoiled Table Rock Falls and then explores the adjacent river valley. Some long distance scenic views make the multiuse section of the trail pleasing. There are soft surface trails of equestrian and hiking. Equestrian trailer parking is located at 1300 Mineral Springs Rd., Dacula, GA 30019
Other amenities include a large rustic-looking picnic pavilion, two smaller picnic pavilions, restrooms. a playground, and an observation terrace at the peak of the West Meadow, which is one of the highest elevations in Gwinnett County.
The day my two boys and I visited was busy with park visitors. The larger pavilion was booked solid with families, families were biking and walking the pond trail, horse riders were out in the meadow and we took the 2-mile trail through the forest. The trail itself had many areas of stone steps (sometimes as many as 35-40), some of the paths were closed off and we were detoured around, but still had a great time. Later football and frisbie in the open area was part of the fun, including of course the playground for the five year old.
