The parking area is off of Riverside Dr. on the Northeast corner of the intersection of Riverside Dr and Highway 9 (to the north of the Chattahoochee).
This is a great trail that is easily accessible, has well defined trails, and maps at every trail head. Next time I will pack out some of the garbage along the trails following the river.
Great trail to be in the middle of the city. Lots of rocks and roots! The drawback is the frequent sound of traffic, but it IS in suburbia! The sounds of the waterfall as you near, as well as the sound of laughter from the folks swimming at the base of the falls, are enjoyable.
it was a great hike for all levels. beautiful pics!!
Lots of shade. Very nice.
There are a few different trails you can take. If you park at the Vickery Creek trailhead across from Riverside Park, the walk to the dam is about 1 mile. If you park at the old mill, you just have to cross the covered bridge. The area down by the rocks in front of the dam is beautiful but there was trash everywhere. That was disappointing. Careful bringing kids down to the water, it's steep and the rocks are very slippery.
Used to be a regular of mine. Always enjoyed it, well maintained and quiet.
It's a shaded, easy loop with multiple access. Be creative finding the way to the bottom of the dam.
Great waterfall and some neat ruins.
Fun trails, provided maps along the way stink ( old and faded ). Although rated moderate, I found the trails easy to navigate and not too bad on the knees and ankles. People were jogging on them.
The trails strictly for hiking difficult time due to the elevation of the trail. The waterfalls are beautiful and worth coming for just that! Bring bug spray because most of the trailers are in the woods.
Fun and very pretty.
Hiked the trail for the first time this weekend, not a bad trail, but the map placards are terrible because they are faded and the posts are not marked. There are few blazes on the trails so keep your eyes open.
The trails were very empty early in the morning, but as the day neared mid day the parking lot was filled.
Was very disappointed in the trash cans overflowing with garbage from messy visitors who were hanging out in the falls area. Filthy.
There's not a whole lot of things to see on the trail except for along the river.
Loved this place. The signs are not easy to read, but the GPS on my phone got me where I needed to go. I found the waterfall by following the crowds. Beautiful place, good hike!
