went for the 3.5 mile and ended up going 5 miles. There's a path that takes you to the water as part of the trail about 4 miles in with no sign that says do not enter yet after about .5 mile there is no place to go, it just stops at the water so we had no choice but to back track. Didn't care for the road noise but it was nice to see the dam and water fall.

Well kept trails perfect for beautiful views.

Awesome property and super awesome history. Love this place, will be back next time I'm down. It took awhile to find the falls, I guess we were a bit sleepy or something as they can almost be seen from the main entrance. Lots of rocks and roots so keep your toes up! I stubbed a toe and almost crashed. This is a must hike or trail run for everyone in Atlanta. Come on, get out there, do it!

Nice hike. Not sure why they says it’s 5.1 miles. We took the long route and it wasn’t quite four miles. Still a good workout with a nice view of a waterfall.

One of our favorite go to hikes. Shady and nice waterfall to end the hike on a warm summer day or enjoy waterfall without getting in

Pretty, enough climbing to be a workout. Negative is that you can hear traffic for quite a lot of it.

Beautiful and shady.

I really liked this trail, except when I went down the southernmost part of the trail, it looks on the app like you should be able to complete a loop over to the east side of the park, but I came to what seemed like a dead end, and the only way to continue would be to climb over some really steep and slippery rocks. I tried approaching from the east again a week later, and there was a sign that the trail was closed. maybe that part was washed out somehow?

This is a relatively easy trail, but the section along the creek is technical with narrow rock ledges and drop offs to ok the creek. Would be treacherous if the ground is wet. The creekside trail is marked closed on the end near the parking area on Riverside Rd but not from the end near theRoswell Mill. Don’t do this section if you’re not sure footed. This loop should probably be rated as moderate, not easy due to the section along the creek. You can walk from the trail to historic Roswell. It’s about a half mile across the bridge and uphill the whole way. Lunch at the Mill Restaurant and Bar is a nice mid-hike stop.

Trail tends to get a bit secluded. Nice to get away from the hustle and bustle.

Excellent hike where you feel more like you are in the woods, than in the city. Many different spurs to add distance to the hike.

It's an easy trail with a dirt trail that connects. I took the dirt trail and it was great! It has other trails that connect to go different directions. I went with my dachshund and we enjoyed those different trail leads.

This was a fun hike through mostly wooded area; we did it with several small children in tow and it is not a particularly difficult hike. A plus is that it's just minutes away from the strip in old Roswell so an early hike followed up by some lunch at one of the many nice restaurants nearby makes a great day!

Not good. There are too many trails, it gets very confusing. I had to turn around at least 4 times. It was also pretty populated, which I didn't like. The trail goes by the Roswell Mill, for anyone who knows what that it.

Great trail. Loved the waterfall. There's a little cubby hole by waterfall. The nature of the trails is beautiful. Bring a swimsuit. People go into water. Great for kids to get refreshed. Pet friendly. Highly recommend this trail.

Easy, relaxing and friendly people/pets. Some bicycles but, not that bad.

This can barely be considered a trail, it's more like a sidewalk. It runs directly next to a busy road and the majority of it is paved. No inclines at all, barely any nature. The river is nice but there are way better views at other parks.

2.90 miles. For me it was moderately strenuous due to the tree roots in the path. My hiking boots definitely were needed. Trails markers are confusing. That said it is a wonderful hike in the wooded hills between Big Creek and Vickery Creek.

Beautiful area. I'm training for a marathon in January and was hoping for more. This is a great place to walk the dog or stroll your kiddos, however, for a distance run you may wanna look elsewhere. From the parking lot it's about a mile and a half Norway and a mile the other. The parking lot is roughly in the middle of both paths. Beautiful scenery

These trails around Vickery Creek are literally the only thing I miss about Georgia. We've got some beautiful Audubon trails near where I live in MA now but I think I miss both the challenge and variety of this trail system, with which I became familiar between 2010 and 2012. I felt fortunate to be able to just walk out my front door and be on the trails in 5 minutes when I lived in Roswell. These are challenging trails for a runner but also rewarding, once you're done. Don't try them unless you're pretty fleet-footed and nimble. People re-starting a running program or slow, heavy-footed runners should take care, especially in the fall, when leaves hide the jutting roots. You'll encounter the occasional copperhead on these trails as well, but I could always spot them from pretty far off and suspect most people can, especially native southerners. That said, if I daydream of anything back in Georgia, I daydream about running these trails. Would recommend to anyone who loves nature and wants a hike with some visual variety.

Took my two year old daughter here in the jogging stroller and had a blast. Paths are easy and clean and everything is well maintained. The river was slow and the weather was perfect. I look forward to something a little more challenging as this was very easy but I would come again for something mild.

Trails are deserted during the week, which makes it a very enjoyable hike. A lot of alternative routes throughout the trail system. Could use updated trail markers. Not very difficult, definately a moderate trail especially along the Creek
