Swift Cantrell Park is a 1 mile heavily trafficked loop trail located near Kennesaw, GA. The trail is good for all skill levels and primarily used for walking. Dogs are also able to use this trail but must be kept on leash.

I like the 1 mile loop walking trail - very smooth and relatively flat, slight elevation in spots. A nice trail to get in a walk or run after work or take your dog to the small or large dog parks, if you wish. Nice large field to play soccer, frisbee, catch, fly a kite, picnic, etc. Nice pavilions and restroom facilities as well as playground equipment for the kiddies. The skatepark is amazing (not that I skateboard, ha ha).
Now, there are some negatives. It can be a very crowded park,especially early weekday evenings and Saturday afternoons. There are the pesky skateboarders that love to speed down the walking path (and almost run you down) instead of staying on the skatepark section. There are some that choose to ride their bicycles on the path as well, which is not a problem unless the path is jammed with people.
And then there is the strange dude that rides his bike with the confederate flag, a.m radio playing, wearing "Foxcatcher" shorts (if you seen the movie, you know what I am talking about). He doesn't talk to anyone that I have seen and he sometimes just sits on his bike and watches people. He is probably harmless, but strange nonetheless.
I recommend this trail - just be weary of the time you go. There is an overflow lot at the elementary school around the corner. And watch out for the skaters!
it's a huge family part, and you can walk there but it is not a trail. don't expect any scenic views or walking in the woods experience
This is a great paved trail. Great family park that offers play grounds, massive skate park, and two different dog runs. Don't expect scenic views though
This is a nice paved walking trail. Its biggest appeal is the versatility of the park. Ther trail encircles a dog park, 2 separate playgrounds and wide open spaces. There are plenty of picnic tables and soon there will be a skater's playground
