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.

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.

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

Was in town for training. I found this trail and loved it. It is paved and rolly. Loved it.

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!

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.

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.

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

Nice walk in the woods near river.

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

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.

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.

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!

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.

I love this place !

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

Lots of up/downs & windy trails. Probably really fun for mountain biking

nice walking trail once you cross the bridge and turn right. didn't run into any bikers
