Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area preserves a series of sites between Atlanta in the United States and Lake Sidney Lanier along the Chattahoochee River. The 48-mile (77 km) stretch of the river affords public recreation opportunities and access to historic spots. The National Recreation Area, a National Park Service unit, was established on August 15, 1978 by President Jimmy Carter. The park headquarters and visitor center are located at the Island Ford Unit of the park at 1978 Island Ford Parkway in Sandy Springs, Georgia. The Chattahoochee River is a stocked trout stream with 23 species of game fish. Year-round fishing is available with a Georgia fishing license and a trout stamp.

Really peaceful and shaded trail. We took the route that lead us to the creek. It was SO beautiful.

To many turns to navigate for a cohesive run but a good waking trail

Relatively easy set of trails. We didn't find it very well marked so it was easy to get turned around on the many intersecting loops. Waterfall was sparse this time of year, but still beautiful.

A short trail with the river alongside you. It's pretty level so good for beginners.

For some reason ALL TRAILS is loaded with this same loop under multiple names. Probably the second most boring of Chattahoochee hikes close to ATL.

Pretty easy hike. Some of the trails had washed out a little making the inclines a little tricky. I absolutely loved the the waterfall and the historic mill. beautiful!

This trail doesn't have many views besides the small waterfall. It's a decent hike. Good for a walk with friends.

Nice OTP trail hike. Good trail quality with very manageable elevation changes. A lot of descriptions say moderate, but it's fairly easy.

Pleasantly surprised by our experience here! It's definitely busy, but the path is wide enough to accommodate easy passing. Not a hiking trail by any stretch of the imagination, but more scenic than typical suburban park trails. Enjoyed the creek views and informational signs about all the tree types along the way.

This was a great hike. I recommend staying on the trail when you get to the rocky area. This get pretty hairy. Beautiful area.

I enjoy walking downriver most. Many trails, some annoying bikers, but those need play areas too.
