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.

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.

What a wonderful trail for a hike! This was my first time. Wonderful views and places to explore with water views, rocks to climb on, and bamboo area. Beautiful. It would have been tough to run if newer to trail running but great hike. Will definitely be back.

Pretty quiet. Good run. Steady mild ups or downs. Finished next to a nice small lake. Drinking fountain in parking lot. No restrooms. Good wildlife sounds.

Love this Trail. It is a little piece of heaven in the middle of suburbia!

I absolutely love this trail. There are plenty of different routes you can take - for those who prefer an easier walk, or something more challenging. It’s very scenic so there’s always something to look at. There is also a dog beach off to the left which is a lot of fun! It’s perfect when the water is low, but after it’s been raining, it’s a little too full to walk out anywhere. Just beware of the parking situation, as there is limited spots and it gets VERY busy on a nice weekend. (Also parking is $5 - cash only).

This is my favorite of all the Chattahoochee National Recreation Area Parks in metro ATL. It has some nice hills, beautiful views along the river, and a good amount of total trail mileage. The bamboo forest is always enchanting and try to find the cave off a side trail. The only downside is that parking can be difficult during busy times. And one way roads in some areas to the parking area so can be tricky. But it's usually not an issue and definitely worth a visit.

Well maintained paved paths and boardwalks for a longer run or tempo run. Enough turns and elevation change to keep it interesting. Clear mile markers and signage for the greenway keep you going in the right direction. If you’re looking for additional mileage, add on the Ivy Creek Greenway (a left up a wooden walkway around mile 3.3) which is more heavily wooded and has some pretty views.

love this trail! great boulders in the river for relaxing, and a decent workout too. the ruins are cool.

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.

This is our "every night" trail, we see deer, beavers, Great Blue Herons, hawks, snakes, fish, turtles. Such a great place for an evening walk. Mostly shaded.

Birds, trees, invasive species,
Best spot in the southeast (Atlanta, at least)

Great overlook of the river.

Nice trail and fairly scenic along the Hooch. Mulberry Creek is the final destination and is nice place for kids or the four-legged children among us.

Out of 4 to 5 trails I've biked on, this is probably the shortest in distance. However, I'd consider this trail more "workout" than fun (...nothing wrong with that). Lots of steep elevations and narrow paths. Not as many bikers on the trail as anticipated but way more hikers. The hikers were mindful and respectful of the biker's traffic. Not a whole lot to see on the 2 mile bike loop but as mentioned, you will get a good workout. I went on a Saturday and curious if I will feel the same on a Sunday biking in the opposite direction.
I am definitely adding this trail to my favorites.

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

Really enjoyed my walk here. Beautiful scenery. Lots of people but still quiet enough. Loved it!

Nice network of trails with varying grades and windy-ness. Love running around and taking a dip in the creek with the cool, old ruins there. We saw a fantasy costume photoshoot taking place in the natural river scenery, and a group taking their yoga walk. People have fun mountain biking— look out for them. The pond is a lovely setting for gazing, with a dock for lounging or other friendly activities.

While hiking here, someone busted out my car window. Upon discussing with friends, it turns out another friend had a window busted out here a couple of weeks ago, and another had her car keyed. Will not be back. Seems to be a hotspot for criminal activity.

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!

moved up this way from Decatur and am very impressed with Gwinnett County and the trail system!

good short trail. a lot of the trails wind up in people's backyards

Nice trail in the city. Easy but with lots to see, especially the bamboo grove. Watch out for snakes.

This trail was well marked. We hiked the full loop. Very hilly, rooty, and overall a great workout! Loved it, I will be back

Beautiful trail and easy to walk. The trees provide enough shade on a warm Georgia day.

Going the whole trail, sometimes the path is difficult to see. Going all the way, get ready to climb around a large fallen tree (or climb thru the large hole that the tree left).
It is nice and cool, especially by the water with wind blowing. STOP, take time to admire the forest.

Some of the trail wasn’t super defined and it could be hard to follow. Went for the bridge but there is hardly anything left to see. It was nice to walk along to river though and aside from confusion on where to go it was a fairly easy trail.
