Easy trail. No view. Would potentially mtn bike but not hike again.
Great hike - especially if you haven't been in a while. Not overly crowded which is nice. Saw a bear in the home stretch so that really got the adrenaline going! Will definately be back another day.
Overall well kept trail. The sound of the creek and multiple, small waterfalls was very peaceful. A few inclines, but a good trek for us and our dog!
Only 5.8 miles on flat creek loop but there are other trails other than the loop you can do to extend mileage. Little over 1,000 elevation climb on Flat Creek Loop. Mostly smoothed trail with some rocks. No vista views but pretty creeks.
It was beautiful on this trail. We had our share of uphill but it was so worth it. When we got to fall creek and the little bridge so pretty. Worth the hike
Great streams and serenity!
This was a decent trail but during the winter when all the leaves are off it just becomes a long hike of dead looking trees. The mountains in the distance and the running water throughout the hike was the best part.
Perfect for getting back to nature. Well maintained
Nice enough trail. Easy to walk and some spots were very pretty. Nice length.
Little bit rainy but we made the best of it. It was nice to get out if the cabin and get the blood flowing! Beautiful mountain area.
Total distance clocked in at 6.2 miles, including the approach. We did the loop clockwise, that direction gives you an extended uphill climb. With all of the leaves off the trees you could see over to other mountains, very nice but not really a photo op.
Great way to get an easy and up close look at the natural beauty of the area.
We hiked the entire loop in about 2.75 hours. It was challenging, fun, and the trail was well maintained.
We hiked the whole loop in about 2.75 hours. It was challenging, but fun. The trail was well maintained.
Went clockwise, steep descends and a few good climbs on the first half. Steady uphill on second half. It was 7am, overcast, dark, drizzly (but tree canopy let only a little moisture come through so no rain gear needed). Saw three other couples with dogs during the trip, all going counterclockwise. Very nice day. Fitbit said we did 15,000 steps and 95 flights of stairs (WOW!). The rocks were tiring, my feet & ankles hurt by the end. No scenic views, dense tree canopy the whole way. Good hike though.
Hiked this loop on 10/18/14 (or should say pulled by the dog). Weather was great, sunny low 60's, perfect weather. Not much for any views, just a couple of glimpses. However, great hike though some beautiful North Georgia woods. Couple of small streams and small water falls. Does have a couple of good inclines that will give your legs and lungs a workout. Parking lot was full but I only came across 6 hikers. There was a church group of about 20 campers but most all of the trail there was no one in sight. Definite do again hike since it's close and a good workout.
The trail was, for the most part, unremarkable. Hiking this trail was great exercise. If I had a bike, it would be a great loop.
