Nice trail- very flat except for a small hill at the very end. Lots of trail runners- with the flatness of the trail I see the appeal for trail running.

Great trail that takes you from views Lake Lanier from the parking lot, around Buford Dam, then along the Chattahoochee River and in and out of the woods with plenty of terrain changes. Nice challenge for trail running. Will definitely go again.

The Buford Dam in and out hike is worth doing once. It follows the Hooch and the trail is NOT marked. Without All Trails app I would have been lost for days

I really enjoyed this trail. As other commenters have mentioned, it isn’t marked very well so there are moments where you may fall off track and wander around picnic and playground areas, however that is only a handful of times. Otherwise, awesome trail. Super pretty when you are right beside the river.

Beautiful trail. 3 points to consider: 1. No dogs allowed - which is disappointing. 2. There are a couple of spots where the trail isn't clearly marked - very easy to get side tracked wandering around parking lots. 3. There are some secluded spots where I did not feel comfortable (as a female) being alone - which is why I wish I could take my dog.

The trail was good when it was away from the roads, but it crossed Buford Dam Road in a few places. Also I managed to lose the trail and ended up touring parking lots and boat launches in the area. Would reccomend with better vigilance than I exhibited.

this was a great little hike and it showed me how my new gear was. was testing out my new hiking boots and putting some wear into it, there was a nice trail of rocky and muddy areas. I recommend to light hiking and moderate , very pretty.

absolutely love it

love this peaceful trail

Decent trail. Would definitely come back. Rainy day so not many people.

Very well maintained and marked trail. The canopy of trees kept the trail from being too warm. It was 87 * and I never felt hot. I would definitely hike this trail again.

This is very enjoyable hike with many small streams and natural water features. Moderate home with some uphill but no climbing. This is one of my favorite Trails in GA

Good length moderate hike. Trail is well maintained and marked. Aside from never quite getting away from car noise it is a great midday hiking spot.

The trails are easy but the beauty of the hike was enhanced by the fall colors. Having moved from California to Georgia recently, the kids and I enjoyed the hike and discovered a wonderful place to visit within minutes of our house. Awesome!!

Park is closed for the season. Hiking is still available but the gates close and LOCK at 1700 hours. There is NO free parking where you are able to retrieve your vehicle after 1700 hours. Hike early ;-)

I hiked the trail this morning in about an hour and a quarter. The crews did a nice job cleaning up after Irma.

Nice trail with good elevation changes and views of the lake. I only found the trail to be 3.7 miles.

I will do this trail again. And, even though I hiked on the Labor Day Holiday, it was not too crowded. The parking lot was controlled by a ranger that was very friendly and helpful. The trail was in good shape and the boardwalks were in surprisingly good shape even as well used as this trail is, and thanks to all users for not leaving trash - I do not think I saw any litter - great job everyone.

Nice trail with lots of shade and a decent amount of smaller climbs to get more of a workout.

Beautiful morning hike. Saw a lot of wildlife.. deer, rabbits, birds. Not too many people and wonderful views of the lake and river. It's s bit loud near the road and the trail crosses a few parking lots... but a great workout and much needed quiet time.
