Only about an hour long, beautiful and can get steep! We went early so there were only a few people.

Grew up here. The Nature Center itself is great for children, they have lots of activities especially in the summer. I remember as a kid in elementary school sometimes our classes could walk to DNC and use their outdoor classroom! (Not sure if that’s a thing anymore.) Now as an adult I take my dogs all the time and it’s a good hike that can last about an hour. There’s a great spot where the local Boy Scouts set up Eno Hammocks for the public to lay in after a good hike. There’s other cool things to discover like a huge teepee (maybe a yurt?) and a cool beehive with a pane of glass in front so you can watch the bees do their work.

Nice easy hike, pretty waterfalls, a bit crowded on a nice October day and hard to pass at points.

I appreciate the abundance of signs mapping the trail, but blazes would've been a lot nicer/easier than having to stop and check which one of the paths you want to go down. Also, some kind of marker for where waterfall overlooks are would be appreciated instead of just following the sound down different trails.

I'll be honest, part of me writing this review is because it was sitting at 666 reviews :p

As a brand new trail runner this is my very first trail and it’s awesome still getting use to it having been running it the last 3 Sunday’s so it’s still challenging but I think I found something new to add to my workout regimen. It will be even more exciting when I trail running shoes come in!!!!!

Easy for family hikes

Awesome setting for a short trail but extremely packed. Recommend finding some of the side trails tucked off on the sides to venture back down the mountain.

Bit crowded but it’s a good trail. We stared off from riverside st parking lot to achieve 3.8 miles trail. During returning we adapted a closed trail which we were not aware of and that trail was dam creepy but had fun and we were able to catch up the active trail. Plan to take extra pair of clothes if you want to get into the waterfall. Overall it’s a awesome trail.

This is my first trail so I don't have a comparison but I enjoyed it! Challenging enough to not make me quit walking altogether but easy enough to make me feel comfortable to do it again. Love that it's mostly shaded....I avoid the sun!

Crowded, full of trash, and constant traffic noise from Grimes Bridge Rd.

Went today with my friends, nice day to hike and good trial.

Seen a couple of instances of folks not having their dogs leashed.

I’ve been wanting to check this place out for a long time and can’t believe what a hidden gem this is! I was looking for a new place to walk my dog and this popped up when I did a google search. This was my first time here and since it was a Sunday afternoon the building was closed. I couldn’t get over how peaceful and beautiful this place was! Very well kept trails, beautiful water features around the building, great place to walk my dog and enjoy the scenery. I took a bunch of photos along the way. I can’t wait to go back!

I felt it quite easy and no elevation at all. For warming up and running into woods, I recommend this trail

nice for a short run. some misleading offshoots to back yards just turn around

Steep incline to start but otherwise a fairly easy trail.

Great up and down... get good shoes as can be slippery

Well marked and great views at the top. LOTS of people.

It’s a awesome place to get a quick hike in after work! Just a brief up and down. People can do t on their own since there are lots of other hikers! Fast way to get elevation near Atlanta. It could also be a good trail run! Not as scenic but easy and accessible:)
Pro tip: don’t go on a weekend because it’s CROWDED!

If you are in Roswell and have nothing better to do then this is a fine way to spend a morning. Don’t go out of your way.

Beautiful and Beautifully maintained

Careful when it rains! It gets slippery. Go early or late for best views/light. The hike gets crowded on the weekends.

Great hike. Beautiful.

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

Great hike and what a view

best time to climb Stone Mountain is either early in the morning or just before sunset. To see the sun rising or setting and the lights off Atlanta in the distance is awesome.

I go every Monday morning it’s a wonderful climb for all ages. The best time to go is around 8:00am that way you aren’t being hit My the suns powerful rays.

Awesome view at the end.
Very crowded and hot but much of it is shaded.

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 :)

Definitely more strenuous than moderate for me. it's only 1 mile up, but you also go 700-800 feet up in elevation. It's worth it at the top though.
