This trail had some great nature and a surprise waterfall. it's got a great wooden walking platform over some small streams too.

Great views and not too crowded on a Friday morning...definitely recommend!

Too crowded for me. There were people everywhere. I like to have a little peace and quiet. The view was nice at the top. Unless you are just trying to get miles in, I would not do entire loop. I liked hiking from Bettis-Tribble Rd. Entrance. Did not like hike from Spot Rd.

Easy short hike, kind of crowded especially at the top. The view is beautiful though! Overall a nice hike.

A really special landscape and very clean. We only found two pieces of trash to pick up on the trail and both looked like they were dropped minutes before we got to them. Seeing the granite after a good rain provides nice pools in the granite but also creates a lot of water to cross on the back side of the trail behind the lake. Bring waterproof footwear!

good trail. if the parking lot is full next to thr trailhead you can park just down tje street but it does add an extra mile coming and going. we just did the lake trail and ended with 5.33 miles total back to the car. just beware. side note: if you are doing the lake trail, when you find the blue marker and head into the woods, just keep going to the open field. the markers in tgis area wander and back track. was very confussing to say rhe least.

Maybe it's just me, but it's pretty easy to get somewhat lost. I ended up appearing in a neighborhood next to someone's backyard...

great walk with my son who is 5

This is a great trail for mountain biking. I'm not sure why alltrails classifies it as easy. it is a good challenging ride. there's a lot of incline, and roots and rocks to navigate around. I usually incorporate this and the flat trail down by the river and do two laps around the entire thing. it's a nice ride. very good workout.

Nice easy trail. A little crowded. Bummer that no pets allowed. Should be no kids under 7 allowed, lol. View is pretty nice as well.

Very cool, unique place to check out in Atlanta. Lot's of history and a cool hidden viewpoint of the city scape.

Had company on the trail even a grey day post oodles of rain. Most challenging aspect was the slipperiness of the rock coming down the trail.
Not the visual escape I normally enjoy. I wouldn’t do this alone again as there was a creeper along the boardwalk between trailhead and AWARE parking area. Saw him relieving himself on the boardwalk off Klondike Rd and loitering around the trailhead. Maybe a one off though.(?) the ecology of the rock is very cool though and the little waterfall was charming.

Some of the Trail was a 3 and many areas a 5. It was a little challenging staying on the trail at times. Only saw one other. Fair amounts of standing water but otherwise path was pretty firm.

love this hike, have run it many times

you can get lost and explore a bit more if you go off trail

An intown gem.

Great hike, the vista is worth the hike up,lots of roots and rocks under foot

Hike and bike trail. Mainly in forest. Limited view of the river. Wide trails.

A challenging ride...couldn’t figure out how it could be up hill the whole trail. Just kidding, it’s a great trail pretty narrow. Not for the beginner. Can’t wait to ride it again.

Really enjoyed this trail! Moderate elevation changes and great view from the top!

Nice hike and summit view close to Atlanta.

Great woodland trail in the middle of suburbia. Recommend that you check out the trail map posted at the kiosk.

Good trail. Nothing difficult in regards to terrain changes. Nice view at the top. Excellent fall colors for mid November.

Beautiful view, but no dogs allowed!!

You’d never know you were still in Atlanta! It’s breathtakingly beautiful and strenuous! Can really take in the nature around you!

This is one of our favorites. It’s close the kids love it and it’s beautiful in the fall!

Top view very nice , great Trail .

Really nice hike, lots of different things to see. Pretty easy to follow as long as you check the map in the app occasionally.

Nice hike - would not considerate this moderate - more like easy. 9 year son did this with no issue. View from the top is nice. Busy trails on a Sunday morning but not overcrowded.
