Great running trail with good elevation changes.
Beautiful trail, I love the access to the water and the ability to just enjoy nature. I'm a bit dubious of the "easy trail" classification. The trail is quite hilly and could be difficult to navigate. Certainly, it was a bit more difficult than some of the other "easy" trails.
This trail should be rated medium not easy. very nice view of the river. Narrow trail space in some parts. There is a $3 parking fee and that is the only reason I give it 4 stars.
Good trails, great for beginners due to level surface. Also good park to take younger children to play in shallow parts of the river. Definitely recommended
This trail is in the Jones Bridge Unit - Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area in Johns Creek, GA. There is a Jones Bridge County Park in Norcross, GA (Gwinnett County) that is directly across the river from the north end of the Jones Bridge Unit. These are two different parks, and I have suggested an edit. Hope this alleviates any confusion. Expect the parking areas to fill up quickly on weekends and holidays during warm weather months. Unlike some areas along the river, the shoreline here is even with the waterline and is the river is easily accessible. Refreshing.
Pretty flat. Lots of trail runners, so pay attention. Feels more remote than it is. Old Bridge at the far end of the trail is interesting.
Very easy, as there is little up and down, but it is a very scenic trail since it runs along the river. A wonderful "walk in the woods".
Awesome Trail watch video for beautiful views
Pretty fun and easy trail. Enjoyable views. Agreed that it gets busy, but it wasn't too bad for a gorgeous Saturday afternoon!
Awesome trail, we did 5 miles, get here early it's busy
Well kept trail. App wasn't totally accurate but just continue on the beaten path. Not desolate, lots of others out there.
Jones Bridge Trail, located in Norcross, Georgia, is one of the more secluded trails you'll find in the north metro Atlanta area. The scenery here is nice, especially in the fall, and the backdrop of the Chattahoochee River provides an interesting and calming feel to the hiking experience.
The trail here is not strenuous, probably moderate at its worst, but there are a couple of larger hills toward the back of the loop that inexperienced hikers or children may find difficult. Keep your eyes open for wildlife, as the occasional deer has been known to make an appearance on the loop.
The northern half of the trail features Jones Bridge, an old, disused bridge covering about half of the river's width. It's very cool, even if graffiti has been sprayed on the support columns.
The biggest issue I had here was the trash. Dogs are common here, and it seems as though every quarter mile or so, someone had left a bag with dog excrement on the side of the trail. People who do this ruin an otherwise scenic and enjoyable trek through the suburban wood.
In all, the trail is nice and well marked, even if it is in suburban hell. There are plenty of things to see along the way. I definitely recommend this for the weekend warrior.
Easy hiking with lots of River scenery. Trails was well marked with maps.
Nice enjoyable hike.
Pretty easy trail. A few ups and downs on some ridges. Came across 5 young doe in the creek bottom, which was cool. People walking their dogs too.
A great hike. Very flat in most parts. Be sure to bring cash as you have to pay to park 3$.
