Located near Callaway Gardens and the quaint town of Warm Springs, this park is deeply rooted in the historical era of four-time President Franklin D. Roosevelt. Seeking a place for treatment after he was stricken with polio in 1921, Roosevelt traveled to Warm Springs and built his Little White House. Several structures within the park were built by Roosevelts Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) during the Great Depression. Above Kings Gap is Dowdells Knob, Roosevelts favorite picnic spot overlooking a magnificent view of the valley below. A life-size sculpture of the beloved president welcomes visitors to the overlook. Hikers will enjoy the scenic trails in Georgias largest state park, especially the Pine Mountain Trail, which winds through a mix of hardwoods and pines. The trail's highest elevation is 1,395 feet. Pine Mountain is on the southern-most edge of the Appalachian Mountain range. Hikers are sometimes surprised to find this terrain in middle Georgia. One of the park's most popular amenities is the historic "Liberty Bell Pool" built by the CCC and fed by naturally cool springs.

This is a great trail at a moderate level. Lots of creek crossings and small waterfalls. Not overly busy. Well marked with trailblazers. I will hike again.

It was a decent trail, however it was rather boring. Several rocky spots, muddy areas and a couple places where trees were blown completely across the already narrow path.

I hiked this part in March for the Wolfden Loop, this time I brought the kids and a friend to see the waterfalls. The mountain laurels, Carolina allspice and trilliums were in bloom. Trail is rocky and full of trip hazards, but very easy to follow. Some muddy spots near the creeks. Carpenter bees kept buzzing us as we walked by. Saw a copperhead swimming in the water at Csonka Falls. It was pretty crowded at Cascade Falls, but it was still beautiful. Great trail and my favorite in all of the state park.

Extremely well maintained and well marked trail. A bit overcrowded at points though.

This is a nice well maintained loop trail. Several wildflowers were blooming and there's a couple of nice area views from the top of the mountain. Thanks to the Pine Mountain Trail Association for their help with construction and maintenance of the area trails. Great Job! We'll be back.

$5 parking; good number of fellow hikers but not too many. Was pretty muddy (rained last night) but able to get by ok taking care to step on the rocks/roots in the path. Beautiful falls along the way. Bring bug repellant. A couple copperheads near the path, by the stream, but harmless. Unfortunately a lot of trash pieces along the path ...

This was one of my favorite hikes. it wasn't too easy nor too difficult. Change of scenery every few minutes from sunshine and open, to secluded and shady, to crossing the beautiful creek several times. The trail is well-marked. I didn't do the entire loop. I went from Cascade Falls and then turned around to come back the same direction I came from. It ended up being close to 5 miles that way. Did it by myself. I went during the week and it was trafficked enough to where I still felt safe.

This trail has a good mix of terrain and is great for people that are just getting into hiking or trail running. As previously noted in other reviews, the trail blazes and signs were outstanding. There are a few too many road crossings, and thus you never quite get the feeling you are away from civilization. There are some overlooks, at least during the winter, but nothing particularly breathtaking. Overall, its worth a half-day.

Trail is 1/2 rocky with nice heart pumping elevation changes and 1/2 loamy and easy going. The trail is well defined and also has good marking. I varied from 14min/mile pace and 23min/mile pace. It was a nice 65* F for early spring, and the trees were just budding, so great views of surrounding hills and could see downvalley almost a 1/2 mile. Lots of birds and squirrels, and saw a very fast black snake.

Trail was marked well in most places, sometimes it was heard to tell if we were on the trail but it’s well worn in those places. Wildflowers and trees were in bloom, no shade in many places (late March). Slippery slopes from pinestraw or loose gravel, trekking poles help a lot. Several steep inclines, a narrow rock ledge passage, a few creek crossings and road crossings. Scenic views on the south side of the pine mountain trail. All together, a good hike for building endurance and leg strength, I wouldn’t call it easy. We went clockwise starting from the park office and took our dog.

Fun, easy, saw a lot of beautiful flowers blooming that I didn’t even know existed. We went in March during heavy pollen season but it was worth it. Not difficult and plenty to photograph.

Did the trail this morning! Excellent early spring weather! Trail is in great shape and well maintained. For sure not a easy trail. Full of rock and inclines but well worth it. I will for sure go back!

Very scenic trail and also pretty rocky. Saw lots of wildflowers and song birds. Some parts of the trail were narrow, steep and rocky but manageable. One small waterfall and a creek crossing.

Don't go looking for Elephant Rock, it's right there.

The first few miles are along a stream with some falls. We were told to consider this a dry trail for the majority of the summer, but during the winter and spring it seems to have plenty. Most of the rest of the trail weaves next to streams the majority of the way, alternating between crossing them and going up onto the hills above for a mile or two at a time.

There are at least a dozen campsites along this route, but reservations and a parking pass are needed from the state park. There are a few times where you take other side trails off of the main Pine Mountain Trail, but overall it’s a fairly easy and relaxing trail. Some of the trail still has damage from a tornado a few years ago, but they’ve cleared the trail well and rebuilt some of the campsites affected.

Perfect trail for smaller children.

Started this trail early in the morning when there was only 3 other cars parked by the tower. I brought my dog and only saw a couple of other hikers with their dogs. No crowds, serene and beautiful. The trail is mostly rocky, muddy spots near creeks but there were foot bridges crossing some areas. I couldn’t keep count of how many creek crossings were only stepping stones, so make sure you have appropriate footwear. There were a few steep climbs, narrow and slippery areas. Nothing negative to say really, this trail keeps you interested, is well maintained and marked. I did pick up a little bit of trash, pack it out please! The closer I got back to the tower and parking I saw more hikers and the parking lot was almost full when I left.

beautiful, highly recommend.

This is a nice casual trail to hike. It is well-marked and well-worn. Stop off at the benches for the fisheries ponds (no longer in use). Lots of shade and a few water sources (if you need them). Trail is wide and open in some places. A relatively easy hike.

My favorite trail south of Atlanta. If you add the White Candle Trail (2.4miles) in the loop, you will have pretty views also. Lots of pretty waterfalls, long distance along the creek, there is a constant change in scenery along this trail.

Hiked this trail on a three-day weekend Monday morning and it was a bit crowded. Mostly shaded and follows along the banks of Wolfden Branch. Looking forward to hiking it again in the Spring, but not on a holiday.

Love this trail. Love this trail especially in the rain. South side is relatively quiet and smooth with more flowering vegetation than the north side. No water sources on south side but plenty on the northeast part of the trail. Modeate is an accurate rating

Overcast cold February day could not dampen the mood on this trail. As a special treat, a flock of Sandhill Cranes flew in a perfect V overhead on two different occasions. Great day!

Not a bad hike, especially for a family with smaller children. Early February, cool afternoon with cloud cover.

Trail was very easy to follow. It has great views and a nice pass through a small Creek and mini..very mini fall, but a fan of very rocky trails. Had some good inclines to get you pumping a little but nothing too strenuous. good hike
