Nice shaded path for running. Very busy on the weekends, but the trails are wide enough for everyone. Off the wide main paths, there are smaller trails for biking and people who want a more strenuous hike.

Great for a quick evening hike when you don't have a lot of time but want to maximize your workout. Beautiful scenery, lots of deer, cool breeze from the river. The best part is you can't hear the traffic and this trail is right next to 285.

Great evening hike for two novice hikers. We even found wild strawberries off the P8 point!

It was $5 to enter the trail. With all the free trails out there, I don’t see a purpose in paying $5 to walk less than 2 miles.

Nice little loop trail for a quick hike. A moderate incline in the middle is worth the effort, offering fleeting glimpses of the river through the trees during the seasons when the foliage is minimal.

This was pretty easy. Towards the end, if you climb up the hill where the stone wall is, there are a bunch of old sinks and industrial type items. A mattress spring that serves as a “door.” Just makes you wonder about the fun people have had up there. We crossed the parking lot and hiked the island trail but it’s pretty overgrown and there’s not much to see.

I give it a 5 for what I use it for most — a good place to walk my dog. It’s right around the corner from my house so I come here a lot. If you’ve never been here before, expect a lot of walkers and runners and some bikes. Lots of dogs, kids, an easy trail with only about one very minimal incline, a few wooden platforms overlooking the river, nice scenery, but not a “hike.”

Short, not the best hike along the Chattahoochee NRA but still good enough for a quick less than an hour hike.

This is a nice short trail to hit up when you just want to get outside for a bit. Took less than an hour to get fully around the loop and the incline was a good little workout! After the 8th marker you can go off the loop down a dead end trail where there's a couple cool little spots to step off the trail and sit by the water. Well covered by trees too which was nice on a day where it was 100 degrees out!

Starts out on a gravel trail. It's gets better once you get off of it and into the woods.

Once you venture away from the river, there's not a lot of "features" to visually behold in January, but it's still a lovely walk through nature. The area by the river entrance was popular, but we only passed a few people on the longest loop trail. The loop is quite steep if you take it clockwise, but the walk back down to the entrance is mild. (I wouldn't suggest going counterclockwise unless you are fairly sure footed to safely make it down the steepest sections.)

A nice mostly flat trail going along the river. There is a loop in the north east that has a very steep grade. I couldn't wait to get to the top to see the nice view of the ... back of someone's house. I was hoping for a river view, but instead it just goes up and back down. Too bad.

I work right up the road and pass this each day. It is a wonderful place to walk, hike, bike ride and just a relaxing place to enjoy the scenery.

Breathtaking. Seems remote, but safe at the same time. Would never know you are just on the outskirts of a big city like Atlanta.

Not good for hiking, but good kayak takeout point. Powers Island is a great place to put in a boat, and hit the small rapids on the hooch.

This trail was awesome! It was a little crowded on main trail so we took the first off shoot we came to which lead to an awesome winding hike. The awesome part of this trail is that it had several different off shoots. Trails were very well maintained except for several animal poop bags- where pet owners were too lazy to place in designated recepticles. This trail was full of dogs and kids on bikes. I suggest you go early to avoid weekend crowds, or go during the week.

This is a very brief hike. When you cross over to the island, be sure to explore it! The trail is not marked or mapped, but there's a good .5 mile or so to walk in a loop around the island. Don't miss out on that. The rest of the trail is almost entirely flat, but there is one really steep climb, depending on which way you go. The descent was very gradual, so if you come up that way it wouldn't be nearly as difficult. I can't recall which way was more difficult, but I'll make note next time I'm out there. I'm giving this trail three stars just because of the overall lack of elevation gain and difficulty.
