Directions/notes:
The labyrinth is off to the side of a lovely concrete-paved walking trail that runs alongside the Chattahoochee River for 1 mile. You may park behind the Three Rivers (formerly Chatt-Flint) Regional Commission Center building (at 13273 Hwy 34), where the trail begins. Approximately 60 yards into the trail, you will see the labyrinth above you to the left. It is kite-shaped in honor of the electrical experiments of Ben Franklin, our City's namesake. There are benches at the entrance/exit and center of the labyrinth covered in stained glass mosaics portraying some of Ben Franklin's inventions and accomplishments.
