  • Oh, the beauty of the road into the estate. The overhanging trees made for a spectacular backdrop. The grounds are delightful, and the history interesting. We got some helpful info at the visitor’s center and was able to follow the trails with the signs provided. The ruins aren’t much to see, but go for the scenery.
  • The start of Wormsloe is easily the best part, with the arched trees making a picture perfect scenery. Sadly the rest of the site didn't live up the great start. The trials were small and did not really seem taken care of, and the few stops along the way lacked sufficient information to really be informative. Plus the fact that you couldn't see the Forrest Gump house was sort of a bummer. This is something worth visiting for sure, but i am not sure how worth it is to do anything other than stand at the entrance taking pictures.
