Hiked the red trail today that came in a little over 6 miles including all the loops. The falls were very pretty and the paths were great. Lots of bikers on this trail. Would definitely go back.

Pretty cool trail run park, I followed the yellow trail and ran about 12k. Paid $5 bucks to park. I would definitely come back.

It’s beautiful here and peaceful. There’s a waterfall and a nice trail.

Took the yellow trail. Easy hike. Not much to see. Great for Mtn. Bikers. Map doesn't match trails.

Orange and green trail were very rocky and rooty in quite a few spots. Lots of downed trees and obstacles since all the unsettled weather as of late. Yellow rail was much faster and less obstructed. Didn't have time to do the whole yellow or any of the red. Will definitely go back!

Beautiful! A little bit of everything. Kids loved climbing around the rocks and waterfall.

Pretty easy hiking, the falls at the end of the yellow trial are a good spot to take a break and eat a lunch. The map that the park has in there is not up to date and there are a lot of improvised trials. Watch out for the snakes at the falls too.

I liked this trail. It was quiet and the waterfall was nice. I've found some difficulties to see where to cross the river to continue on the red trail, i had to pass on a tree, so i recommend to follow the red trail from the start and not the yellow one. Also, i did the green trail which was nice but much more busy. I recommend to see the fall close to the parking lot, accross the road, at 10mn walking distance. Enjoy!

If you call yourself an avid hiker this trail is quite simple. Not much elevation change. Better suited for a cross country run/jog. The yellow trail is super easy. If you walk up Cochran mill road to hit the red trail it's more of a workout but still quite simple. If you live nearby I suggest it for a nice hike before or after work

Great hiking area with nice mixtures of pine and hardwood forests. I hiked early in the morning and really enjoyed the numerous songbirds. Most of the trails are well worn but a good map and sense of direction is a must. Trail blazes and markers help at intersections. I am not sure I would rate this as moderate, more easy. I tried to make it to one of the higher points in the area but misread the yellow trail map and couldn't connect across the creek. Hiked about 6 miles.

Very nice trails, but not sure about the out and back part. We did a loop that was around 6 miles. Had some nice elevation change. Maybe there are different areas of Cochran Mill?

I love it here! I've been a few times now because it's close to me and has some really beautiful waterfalls. Just make sure you get a map some of the trails are confusing and on the side with the Falls and you can get turned around very easily on the side trails.

Perfect for our dog. She is currently training and it was a perfect spot for us to take her for the first time.

Ensure you pay the Kiosk for parking. I wasn't able to complete all the trails. However, from what I was able to ride today, was very smooth. In most spots the flow was fast. I enjoyed it. I'm definitely coming back for more this weekend.

The green trail by the creek is a beautiful hike. It's about 5 miles if you start at the park and loop all the way around the nature center. There are a lot of older trail markings of different colors painted on the trees and a couple of unmarked splits, so it's easy to get confused. The metal diamonds nailed to the trees are the more current markings.

Waterfalls. Rocks! Great!

My only complaint is the bathroom. I can never unsee what I walked into. The nastiest gas stations have cleaner bathrooms. Other than that, the trails are easy to navigate and falls are nice. although care should be taken, watched a lady bust her ass while taking a photo.

Easy trail for an active lifestyle person. the falls are small but peaceful and pretty. Great for dogs. watch out for horse leave behinds!

Can't wait to do it again !!

We only live a few minutes from this park and it is by far our favorite. We travel all over to hike different state parks but the waterfalls make this one for sure at the top of my list!

Sunday, June 12, 2016

This is one of my favorite parks to go to without traveling over an hour to get to a decent but secluded park. I recommend coming on weekdays oppose to weekends due to it being crowded on weekends. There's 2-3 man-made waterfalls from old mills and one natural waterfall that's roughly a 4 mile hike on the opposing end of the main park! Enjoy!

I love coming here it's absolutely beautiful and worth coming to despite being busy.

It was a fun trail. Only encountered a couple bikers! Way more than just 3 miles though... Just follow the yellow trail. You won't be disappointed.

Cochran Mill Park and its trails hold a special place in my heart. I grew up down the road from this park, went here for Scout camp and also had my first date with my fiancée here. It's rated pretty easy and it's really not much to look at but the waterfalls make it worthwhile. There's three main waterfalls that you will see along the trail, and it's a great place to have a picnic. Take heed of the parking rules and all regulations here - Cochran Mill is ever present under the watchful eye of Chattahoochee Hills Police. And please, for the love of God, if you see trash, pick it up. It seems this place is getting trashier each time I visit.

$5 parking... not a state park. but the trails are still fairly well maintained and the multitude of small loops make this easily adjustable for many lengths of mild hiking/trail running.

The water features, two cascades oce granite domes and an old mill site waterfall are all quite pretty and well worth the sometimes busy trails.

it seems some of the locals use the features as swimming holes which is cool...except for the abundance of beer cans and other debris.

I will say the forests lush green ground cover make for an excellent view especially towards sunset.

bring bug spray.
