The Riverside-Bend Trail at Chattahoochee Bend State Park is a volunteer-built-and-maintained 5 mile (10 miles out and back) trail located near Newnan, Georgia, that features riverviews and is rated easy-to-moderate. Dogs are welcome but must be kept on leash. The first two miles are on the riverbank and feature creek crossings and a 30' tower at 0.8 mile. It intersects the Tower Trail at 0.9 mile. Two miles up the trail turns away from the river and meanders through hardwood ridge-and-valley areas, past former farmland, and though planted pines.
it's ok. just not much scenery. very easy.
had a good time hiking with my daughter thank you
Great trail for the family!
I went here with a couple friends and ran about 7 miles of the trail. It's got a few hills, some pretty steep but overall it's pretty flat and follows the river the entire time. I greatly enjoyed the observation tower. The trail is also very maintained and clean - which is a huge plus for me, especially considering it's a popular destination. You will see a lot of deer - we probably saw about 30.
This is our favorite park! We just finished a grueling 10-mile triathlon of backpacking, hiking, camping, and canoeing! My girlfriend tells me I'm full of doodo but I'm just telling you the truth. I would not lie to my Chattahoochee Bend friends. Really though, this is our favorite park! At the Ranger station ask for Jade the Naturalist, she's Awesome!
We loved the park. Great trails, Nice amenities. WIll certainly return. Our visit was a hiking visit with dogs. Have not tried this on MTB yet, but it looks great.
very well maintained..towers are cool...Geocaches are spectacular
Armadillo:People = 12:2.
This is a quiet trail with very interesting landscape changes. It takes about 3-3.5 hours (out and back = 10 miles). At the end of the trail is platform tent camping, so it would be feasible to backpack in for the evening, then back out the next day.
Great Trail, very easy to follow and well maintained. No real issues at any point and I would say this is a bit more easy than moderate.
Be careful following your GPS driving to the trailhead, it may want to take you down a dead end. If you follow your GPS until you see some signs (Chat Bend State Park - with an ---> pointing the way) just follow those and go all the way to the end of the park by the boat ramp.
Great state park. Very well-maintained park with lots of markers on the trails. Great hike for beginners. I only got winded once and it was at the end of the six-hour round trip. Good scenery, although I wish it would have allowed access to the Chattahoochee without clambering down the mountainside. If offers great views of the river, but it's about a five foot drop to get down to it off-trail. We opted to eat our lunch on a log instead of climbing down next to the river. Rangers seemed very nice, and one offered us a ride back to our car when we opted to follow the road back instead of doubling back on the trail.
This is a very nice State Park. The trail is awesome and fairly easy. There are some great views of the river as well as a ton of geocaching to be done. Very cool park.
