Great trail. We hiked the largest outer loop. At times it got narrow and swampy down by the lake, but most of the trail was wide and well maintained.

Very busy on the weekends so get there early

Very challenging and love the hike

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

great hike with some good views

great hike and lots of civil war history

10.7 miles? Maybe around 16 according to mile marker signs

The East loop is nice, and the rock quarry is a good place to rest and take a lunch.
West loop is tough, but could use a little upkeep due to some overgrowth.
Both trials are good for training for more advanced hikes.

Beautiful and remote. Great to bring the dogs and kids. Easy hike and great creek access!

Peaceful and enjoyable hike.

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

Great hike. Not to hilly, just long enough to do the trick. Cant’t wait to come back!

Fun hike! Went after a rain storm so the trail was super muddy but not very crowded. Under the rainy/muddy conditions, the trail was more of a moderate hike. Lots of rocks at the end just before the gorgeous falls!

It is pretty! We went on a Saturday so crowded and it rained, so really muddy! More on the moderate side than easy. Had toddler with us that couldn’t be carried up the last steep rocky portion to the falls. Had view though!

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.

Great hike in and out! Beautiful
quarry!!

Beautiful scenic hike. Waterfall at top is gorgeous. Many areas of the trail were very muddy.

Wonderful!!!! Lots of falls, lots of shade. Easy hike and lots of places to stop and enjoy the water. Go up the ropes— you won’t regret it! Just stick nearest to the water once you’re up past marker 3 so you don’t get lost!

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

Great trail. Easy for kids. Beautiful falls with lots of areas to get your feet wet or take a little dip. Very crowded. Will try to go during the week next time.

This was an unexpected treat! We went there expecting the 3.7 mile loop listed on this site and instead found it to be more like 18.5 miles of hikeable terrain . The trail is wide enough to accommodate horseback riders making it down right luxurious for hikers. We only hiked the trail outlined on this site but stumbled upon a group of volunteers that were doing maintenance on the paths (clearing fallen trees). They explained that they had been expanding the area over the last several months. We saw several deer, a turtle on the path and several folks on horses. We will return here often.

Really enjoyed this trail. A number of nice elevation changes. Quite a bit of wildlife. Looking forward to running it again.

Good mix of flat and steep

beautiful waterfalls. great hike!

I didn’t see the waterfall, but we took the long way up to the mtn top & it was moderate difficulty. Bathrooms, no shop. The ranger dude was super helpful & friendly. The walk was nice & shady, pretty view from the top. Several benches along the way to stop

Has a nice visitors center w/ a gift shop. Life size Lincoln logs area. Several picnic areas around the hike. Steep climb but has sturdy steps & structures to get you to the top of the waterfall
