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).
To many turns to navigate for a cohesive run but a good waking trail
Relatively easy set of trails. We didn't find it very well marked so it was easy to get turned around on the many intersecting loops. Waterfall was sparse this time of year, but still beautiful.
Pretty easy hike. Some of the trails had washed out a little making the inclines a little tricky. I absolutely loved the the waterfall and the historic mill. beautiful!
This trail doesn't have many views besides the small waterfall. It's a decent hike. Good for a walk with friends.
Nice OTP trail hike. Good trail quality with very manageable elevation changes. A lot of descriptions say moderate, but it's fairly easy.
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.
