Want to do list Map

Did this on a day hike, all the way from the visitors center. The stairs are not easy, even with just a light pack. The falls and initial scenery are breathtaking. The walk going up kind of fools you with how it seems easier than it actually is. Your sore feet will remind you of how much climbing you really did. Coming back was faster, but not easier. The stairs coming back down are a joy (not).

mountain biking

first time doing a MTB trail and it kicked my ass.. might stick to sidewalks for now

saw a baby snapping turtle and enjoyed the trails but nothing over spectacular today. was looking for trails to ride mountain bike on but found nothing really.. but realized there's no MTB riding listed here..

it was beautiful and challenging buy not terrible. It's not a loop though it's out and back.

Super cool and unique hike. The face/surface of the mountain is like a different planet. Dog loved splashing through all the little pools of water

Beautiful and difficult

The stairs are something else. Nothing like 700 stairs on day 1!

This is one of my favorite hikes that’s super close to home. I do this hike about twice a week for a nice little cardio exercise. Not too many difficult hills, balanced in general. Usually very peaceful, not a ton of people here on a weekday afternoon.

It says moderate but I would say more on the easy side. Trails well defined and lots of different loops you can create within the park. Great experience and very kid/dog friendly

Super afternoon day hike with my dog..
Trail are well marked, well maintained and the lake is beautiful in early spring.

Great trails on the east side of the Chattahoochee. Nice views of the river and the overlooks are spectacular. Well worth the $5 parking fee. Get there early on the weekend. It fills up fast.

Great trail! Definitely take the red trail if you want to put in some work. Only passed a few people. Plenty of swimming spots for dogs.

Good trail with lots of switchbacks, inclines and declines. If you are feeling brave, there’s a cave that goes back about 50 feet then opens up into a dead end located on the far side of the shore. Look for a rusted chain at the mouth. Being a hiking stick if you have bad knees. Also be on the lookout for snakes and other wildlife as I ran across one right off the trail and saw numerous deer tracks down by the banks.

That was a great hike, the red trail adds the exclamation point to the difficulty of it for sure. Didn't see anyone out or back except for the workers at the cell tower at the top.

Beautiful and challenging trail. Gorgeous views along the way, especially the dam. Easy to find, yet I never knew it was there! A hidden treasure.

Loved it.

Great trail! Low traffic, friendly hikers and bikers. Very dog-friendly. I only wish the trail was marked better - we did a little unintended off-roading. Great stick selection.

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

Loved this trail! rolling hills, woods, lake views, changing terrain to keep the walk interesting. It was cool to see the views of the dam. A tough short section of walk to the summit. Not exactly a summit to hang out at but the views up there in the winter were in every direction. The best part of hiking this trail is hiking the trail. I will definitely be hiking this trail again very soon. I did not stop during my hike and it took 2 hours and 40 minutes to complete and I clocked the trail at 6 miles for the yellow, red and blue trail. Oh, and I only saw 1 person on the trail the entire hike.

Good trail, well maintained.

Was a little dumb to try to squeeze this in in a half day but I survived. Was carrying just a small day pack with some clothes and water. Up and back took just under 7 hours but I was flying on the way up as I felt time pressure to finish before dark. Paid for it on the way down, I was blasted the last 5 miles or so and those down stairs at the end were miserable. But it's the good kind of sore.

Was fun to see and chat with a number of thru-hikers just starting their adventure, I was very glad I didn't have a heavy pack!

Great trail! Has a lot of technical hiking features, and is great for a workout, hike, trail run.

Have been using it to get my pups in shape for a 3day hiking trip and it’s been really great!

I love running here. Plenty of ups and downs and twists and turns to keep it engaging!! Beautiful Woods and river!

Easy and the perfect spot to relax

Great moderate trail. A few vista's. Few sections will get your heart pumping!

For being so close to the city, it still feels fairly remote. The view at Poppy’s point is great (plus a nice rest stop) on your way to the bamboo forest at the end/turnaround.

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

Nice views and Nice hikes. All the trails are easy. Some go in the woods some go by the river. Take my dog each time and she loves it.
