Awesome trail to run

Lots of boardwalks on this shaded trail make it comfortable on hot summer days. Dont take your bicycle if it's rained recently or expected to, boardwalks become dangerously slippery when wet. the new 4 mile extension is welcome with the mountainous Sawtooth Pass being a challenge for even the most fit riders to climb.

not a bad trail but not well marked. If you cross the creek you are on the other side which is 4+ mile loop.

had Friday morning off work and had it to myself. it was hilly and challenging but all hills are runbable

there are more bike trails than walking but I have fully explored all but two which are bike only paths. tons of great views and easy to navigate. my favorite park so far

This trail seems better suited to cyclists than hikers. It's very narrow in parts and I was constantly stopping to let cyclists pass. The trail was not very well marked in places. Also not much to see but the very occasional peek of lanier through the trees.

Very easy, well maintained, and well marked (much better than last year). It's virtually flat the entire way and it is NOT 6.7 miles... My wife and I both tracked on GPS, and we were on the marked trail the entire time. It's between 5.6 and 5.8 miles. However, there is an outer loop intended for bikes that could be used to make this longer if desired. The signs say it's 12 miles but they are wrong about the inner loop too.

We averaged 19-20 minutes per mile walking all the way around the lake. There's nothing making this trail moderately difficult.

Update: looks like they fixed the description!

long and hard for me that's what she said

I enjoy hiking and running these trails. If you get to know the traffic and when you can best avoid heavy biking times, it’s a great hike. My dog loves the access to water and swimming at multiple points. There are several trails - the best for hiking is mosquito flats + mosquito bite. When running, I enjoy Dwellers Loop (if I can get there early enough to avoid bike traffic.) It’s a difficult run for some that may not be used to trail running so be cautious. Also, tons of deer can be seen on these trails! If you enjoy photography, you can really get some great shots.

Beautiful scenery along the paved trail. I went on a Sunday evening with my dog and the trail had people on it every now and then. Types of people on the trail: bikers, leisure walkers, fast pace walkers, runners. Would be a great place to take a relaxed stroll with a friend or ride your bike without having to worry about traffic.

Great if you are a mountain bike not so much for hikers

Nice and Easy !

Cheif Ladiga Trail is a great ride. The diversity you get to see riding it is really incredible. My dad and I have enjoyed biking together here several times. He's even rode from Jacksonville to Georgia. Looking at hitting the trail Thursday afternoon with my dad and daughter. Being able to spend time in the outdoors with my Dad who introduced me to the outdoors when I was just a kid , now being able to share my love for the outdoors with not only my Dad , but my daughter as well is wonderful. Not many places for young kids to ride like this piece of heaven we have right here in our backyard.

A great trail run! Pretty flat, beware with large groups, this is a mountain biking path first!

My husband and I are hiking fans, and we probably should have guessed by the parking lot and about 100 cars with bike racks that this was a place where hoping was an afterthought. while the facilities were nice the trails were confusing with one way totes that changed based upon the day if the week. this looks like a cool place for beginners to moderate mountain bikers, but not enjoyable for hiking.

Lots of trails! It beautiful and peaceful!

The road biking feature needs to be removed from this park. No paved trails…

Fun trail, dogs on a leash but some people don’t follow that rule.

Very nice , mostly wooded with Great Lake views.

love this trail for long runs when I'm in town. friendly runner and cyclist all along.

Fun trail to run. The direction alternates every other day and is fun either way. Looking forward to hitting it on a Mtn. bike soon, too. Oh and my dog loves it. Under canopy so not too hot and the lake is right there to cool off in afterwards.

Lots of up/downs & windy trails. Probably really fun for mountain biking

Awesome trails. Got lost and ended up on the bike trail for that day, whoops.

nice walking trail once you cross the bridge and turn right. didn't run into any bikers

Great hike with lots of up/down winding, well-blazed trails... clearly marked which direction is biking & which direction is hiking. We went on a Saturday so lots of bikes to contend with. The gnats were not my favorite but beautiful views of the lake and secret alcoves with picnic spots and benches. There is plenty of parking and bathrooms available at trailhead. No parking fees required!

Really liked this trail we rode from Piedmont to the Georgia line and back. Trail could use some repairs in spots due to the roots making the asphalt bulge just be aware of it could cause a wreck. Overall though it was a great ride will definitely go back!

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.

If you click the Directions arrow through Google Maps, it does not take you to the lower parking area with the easiest access to the trail. The link takes you to the upper which is a 2 mile forest service road walk. The trail is beautiful once you arrive on it.

Not the most scenic hike. Very nice 10 mile path through the woods. Well marked with many different trails to follow. Can easily be a short hike of only a couple miles or a long hike of ten or more miles. Lots of deer and birds. Very shaded and peaceful.
