Surrounded by rural countryside and the Chattahoochee National Forest, this quiet park in northwest Georgia offers outstanding fishing on two stocked lakes. Visitors can hike along three miles of lake loop trails and relax in swings while watching for the many bluebirds that live in the park. Access to the scenic 60-mile Pinhoti Trail is only a 1.6-mile hike from the park. Children especially enjoy the playground, feeding ducks and renting pedal boats. A small campground and four cottages are nestled on tree-covered hillsides. This park was named for Rep. James H. Sloppy Floyd who served in the Georgia House of Representatives from 1953 until 1974.

This loop trail starts out relatively easy but the the steep climb just before the Pinhoti trail intersection makes if difficult especially in 90+ degree August weather but well worth the effort. The return section of the loop offers some good views of the upper lake.

did a little over 5 miles was a great park but be careful on the trail some of the steepest I've hiked some good elevation change so it's a little bit of a workout but worth it

Very nice trail. Beautiful park

While hiking this trail, I really felt the BURN. It's a great way to burn off some extra calories or extra energy.!

We hiked the Pinhoti to James H. Floyd State Park around 5.7 mile great scenery throughout especially the old marble mine at the park

Great Trail, opens up in a few places for some great scenery. The trail is not for beginners though. Its pretty steep in some places and other areas are overgrown. But this trail is great for seasoned hikers.
