Nice super easy hike!

Love this place, easy trail and an amazing view if you make it all the way to the top!

Spent Saturday afternoon in early March on the trail with my Golden Retriever. Nice view of the river through out. Less traffic gets little challenging in the 2nd half. Overall a fantastic way to spend your afternoon

Definitely beautiful views if you have good visibility that day. Free parking with lots of available spots. Lots of room when you get to the top. Not a hard trail at all, I would classify this as easy instead of moderate. This would be a great running trail.

I recommend you go early, this is a very popular area. The parking was full by 10am.

Great views of Atlanta and surrounding area at the summit. Snack and drinks at the summit as well. Bring the family for a fun time.

Great hike but parts of the trail are not well-marked, so it's easy to get off-course. Because the trail is around the mountain, however, it's hard to get lost.

Not difficult at all. We had a hiker for whom this was her first hike ever. She found this to be easy

Relatively flat with only one area that will make you breathe very hard. Does not contain many roots or rocks that can twist ankles. Not a very scenic route but the length makes it very nice for getting in shape.

This is a nice trail but, it’s not finished. There was flooding in areas and, a lot of mud. The trail was completely impassable under the roadway. I will definitely wait and come back on a dryer day.

Great view close to town

The Indian Seats Trail is 3.2 miles and has nice views with food incline. I usually hike the three Hilltop, Mountainside, Ridgeline Trail Loop which is another 5 miles. Both together would make it a little over 8 miles. If your really trying to put in miles you can hike both loops twice and maybe on the second go around you can do it the other way for a different look. That would be almost 16.5 miles in that case.

I hate how dogs aren’t allowed here, that’s the only thing I don’t like, because I take my dogs hiking everywhere! Other than that, it’s very beautiful, and not a very long hike either.

Can’t wait to come back and do this Trail in the spring. Lovely views of the river, nice woods, moderately challenging terrain. Lovely

My wife and I did this trail a few weeks ago. The trail is nice, moderately strenuous, and well maintained. We did hit a couple of spots where some markers would have been helpful; markers are lacking here. The view from the top is great, worth the effort! No dogs allowed.

moderate hike with good views and friendly people

Great hike. Took us an 1 hr. and 45 min. with a stop at the top. Slow going on the one side of the trail because of a lot of mud. Hiking shoes needed a bit of hosing off!

Great trail. Recommend going counter clockwise so the carving is at the end. Great way to end the hike.

nice and easy

A handful of spots where the white blazes are hard to locate, but otherwise a nice hike with Great scenery and solid exercise.

On the easy side of moderate. Cold and windy when we were there. Lots of people on the trail.

This is an extremely well marked/traveled trail with many turn-offs. At each turnoff, the NPS has posted a little map with waypoints and a “you are here” legend. Let your kids do the navigating. If they make a wrong turn, there’s not much time or distance lost to the next waypoint.

It’s 5 stars because of the views from the top. Moderately steep incline, but well worth the hike.

Well marked by white blazes and signage. Constantly changing terrain from wide leveled trails, to roots, to exposed granite faces makes for an exciting run.

Some climbing.

Great overlook.

pleasant hike, fairly busy
