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.

Good workout! We took our 3yr old along (he spends a lot of time hiking) and he enjoyed it, too.

Trail was kinda rough and saw a large snake so was nervous for the rest of hike.

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

Solid trail for a quick hike that’s not too far from Atlanta. Rolling hills and some narrow stretches to keep things interesting but nothing too crazy. Good for all ages.

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.

This is a great walk. We did about 1.25 out and turned around. Beautiful views of the lake. It is posted No Dogs (seems to be part of the park across the road) but we saw no one other than a couple of fishermen thigh-deep in the water. So, whatever...

Nice park but recently they painted very gaudy, bright blazes on trees and rocks on most of the trails. Whoever was in charge of this did a terrible job with far too many of them very close together.

This took away some of the natural feel of the park, but it is still nice with many side trails and different routes that one can make.

Trail has 4 stars, App gets ZERO stars for the trail map and directions! BEWARE this is NOT intended to be a loop trail and as noted in the reviews the section along the creek is marked closed at the starting end but not on the trail. This is probably because it is not intended to be approached from that direction. However, the trail just keeps getting more narrow and a difficult traverse across rocky ledges that is simply not easy. In wet conditions it would be downright dangerous! Furthermore, the little blue maps on the trail do not show a loop, there is no trail between V 13 and V 3 but the app does show a loop in this location. See photos that I posted. All that said it is a beautiful spot and if you avoid the area I mentioned it actually is easy.

Trail was enjoyable. Not to busy with people but enough to feel safe. Trail had a pleasant view of the river at times and could be done by all ages.

I love this little trail! I often come at sunrise, and the view is stunning in the morning. great spots for yoga along the boardwalk too

challenging enough to be fun :) some decent views, lots of birds. some great spots for running & leaping over roots

Nice walk in the woods near river.

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

Short hills, nice views - particularly in the fall/winter. Hike takes you to the foundation of an old house by the river. Upstream takes you through a bamboo forest and then a little bouldering to get another nice view just south of 285. When the water is low you can get pretty far across the river. Snakes commonly seen at the river edge and on the rocks in the river.

Nice trail- very flat except for a small hill at the very end. Lots of trail runners- with the flatness of the trail I see the appeal for trail running.

This is an excellent hike for a lazy Sunday afternoon. The trail system is well marked and maintained. Trail follows the river for a good portion of the hike. We didn't see many people at all on the sunny Sunday afternoon.

Decent walk. A lot of shade from trees, which is nice on a summer day in Georgia. Walked after a rainy day and some areas were muddy.

There is a parking fee, but the machine was not working when we were there nor was there anyone to answer questions or pay the fee.

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.

great little stroll through the woods

We did this trail with a 6 year old and were very happy with the trail, location, falls, and nature. Great trail for an easy trek and beer manageable for youngsters.

Great little trail! Good elevation changes, river views, and trails well maintained.

Ok trail in metro area. The trails aren’t super well marked and there’s quite a few spurs so its easy to get turned around and find yourself on a completely different path than you intended to take, but that’s not always a bad thing. The trails seemed a bit dilapidated and neglected in some areas, but overall were charming. As a trail runner I wasn’t a huge fan of the trail system because the lack of signage or solid maps and my lack of knowledge of the area made it difficult to keep up a steady pace and took a bit of the flow out of my run. I kept getting turned around and often felt like I was running into people’s backyards, but as an explorer and hiker I enjoyed it :) Good to try out

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!

It was mine and my sons first time hiking. He’s 8 and I’m 39 and 350 pounds. We enjoyed it and will do it again. We did miss a turn and ended up in a closed part of the trail and had to climb rocks. That part was hard but still an adventure!!

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.
