There are two unconnected trails at Mercer. The east trail has seen more use and better upkeep than the west trail. The east trail has two segments on opposite sides of the road just south of the east parking lot.
The east trail trailheads are marked with a sign saying “Mercer University Cecil B. Day Campus Nature Trail” and listing the rules of the trail. Some of these signs are obscured by trees and set far off the road where they may not be easily visible. The west trail trailheads are marked by wooden signs saying “Nature Trail”.
