It was great hiking. Very easy and wide enough to enjoy different activities. Not crowded, so it is definitely good for family.

...and everyone went hiking today. Middle of January and it's in the low 70's. This trail has a lot of up and down with a few level spots to even out your heart rate. I would consider it moderate with a spot or two that would be hard. I gave it three stars because for the first mile or so you're walking through backyards. Lots of lake views this time of year.

There were a few areas that were a challenge to navigate- rocky or steep- but I was manageable. Most of the trail was easy to moderate. The view from the overlook was definitely worth the hike, so I highly recommend it. I live very close by and will be hiking this as often as I can.

I would rate this as more than moderate in terms of difficulty. Significant and steady climb to the top....also connects to the east side trails which can take you all the way to Allatoona dam.

Nice little trail. Great viewing of the lake and the old buildings.
