Nice and well maintained trail. Staff and rangers are extremely friendly and helpful. Would strongly suggest to keep a map, available in visitor center. Ample amount of parking space.

I'm not sure we got to experience the whole thing, due to some 'police line - do not cross' tape near the bridge. Nice walk otherwise.

This trail has a good mix of ups and downs. Great for exercise

Love this trail especially as a newer trail runner. Nice staff at the visitors center as well.

The part that we got to walk was beautiful. Construction stopped us very close to the beginning. It's very unclear where you are as the one map down the trail doesn't inform you exactly where you are. It would've been so lovely. 8/9/18.

Nice walk in the woods near river.

Nice and Easy !

Pretty view of the falls. One of the more crowded hikes along the Chatahoochee

Moderate is definitely what I’d use to describe the hike. The views of the falls are definitely something to come for! Unfortunately, as some other reviewers mentioned, there is a bit of a littering problem at the base of the falls. Besides that, it was great exercise with some beautiful scenery! I’ll definitely be back and bring some less experienced friends with me so they can get into it and enjoy hiking like I do :)

This place isn't anything special. Its always crowded too.

I liked the trail but it was NOT easy to follow at all. The map signs are missing at several forks and intersections in the trail so I was lost for quite a while. There are also a lot of areas that look like part of the trail but are not. Other than that the trail itself is fun and easy with a few moderate climbs depending on your skill level. Enjoyed walking by the river and spotted some deer!

Very easy and scenic hike, great for all ages. Shaded trail makes for cool temps even in the late June weather. Free parking if you park near the Roswell Mills bridge, easy trail access, puts you at VC12. If you have younger children VC14 is a great area for the kiddies to play in the water, and VC16-17 is where the falls are and the best picture spots. When I went down to the base of the falls there was unfortunately a lot of trash, and even along that area of the trail it was littered with garbage.

I went early on a Thursday morning and did not encounter a single other hiker. Weekends are WAY busier, so I advise going as early as possible.

I love this place !

Nice little hike, get there early for some peace and quiet. However I started from the Chattahoochee NRA ($5 parking) and hiked to the Falls only to realize there was free parking right there at the Falls and tons of families taking pictures, picnicking, etc. Not really what I was picturing. This is more for exercise than hiking.

One of my in-town favorites. Parked in the lot off of Riverside and zigzagged through the trails on the south half of the park, which turned into 4.66 miles. Plan to do the same with the north half soon. Beautiful, peaceful, lots to see.

Great trail. Many options to take on the trial. Visiting from another state. I would recommend it but put mosquito spray on before you ride. They were out today.

Beautiful trail and easy to walk. The trees provide enough shade on a warm Georgia day.

Some of the trail wasn’t super defined and it could be hard to follow. Went for the bridge but there is hardly anything left to see. It was nice to walk along to river though and aside from confusion on where to go it was a fairly easy trail.

This trail was very nice, very rooty and rocky. Nice views

We did not do the entire trail as parts were very muddy and wet. The section along the lake was very pretty but I would not call this part EASY due to some hilly parts with lots of roots and places to balance on logs crossing streams.

The falls are VC-16 if it keeps the photo opers away from the rest of this beautiful trail.

The area around the falls is coincidentally the only area covered in garbage and blunt wrappers. Go figure

Also if you don’t want to pay the 5 bucks park up the road at the community pool and walk up

Really nice, extensive trail connected to several other trails. All-in-all more than 13 miles. Shaded, well marked, and very popular with locals.

loved it!! beautiful scenery and a great workout

Not the most scenic hike, but a good one nonetheless. Well marked trail, lots of parking, and occasional views of the river. Hard to believe it is right next to 400 because there is very little traffic noise, even during rush hour.

Nice trail. More easy than moderate. Would bring the grandkids. Let them play in the water.

Walked with a 17 and 8 year old. All three of us loved every step. There are small waterfalls and the path is well maintained. In fact volunteers and rangers were out working on the trail. The museum is also a cannot miss.

went for the 3.5 mile and ended up going 5 miles. There's a path that takes you to the water as part of the trail about 4 miles in with no sign that says do not enter yet after about .5 mile there is no place to go, it just stops at the water so we had no choice but to back track. Didn't care for the road noise but it was nice to see the dam and water fall.

Came here for the Sweep the Hooch event and stayed to walk the trail. Absolutely gorgeous, even on a rainy day. Perfect escape in the middle of the city.

Well kept trails perfect for beautiful views.
