Nice trail around FDR state park. The name is a bit misleading as it joins with Delano trail and you follow that for awhile. The mountain loop trail is closed due to construction about a mile from where I started by the dock. The park map lists the trail as 3.2 miles.

Fantastic trail! It is long, bring more water then you think you need. Water friendly shoes recommended, such as Chacos, Texas or Keens. Loved all the waterfalls and different landscapes. You will cross two highways on the trail. Highly recommend.

we had a great time on the trail today. Well marked all the way. We used the Seek app to identify plant and tree life along the way. I would say the trail was easy to moderate. our campsite was in the pioneer section so it added some mileage.

Had a lot of fun camping off this trail. It’s VERY pretty and has a diverse amount of mushroom growth. They were my favorite part of this camping trip.

We did this loop with 5 kids ranging from 8 to 17. Completed the loop in 2.5 days. (unfortunately we didnt record the last part of the trail). Parked the cars at Rocky Point and spent nights at Old Sawmill and Sparks Creek. The stretch between the two was a little much for the 8 year old with his pack, but he made it! Both campsites had plenty of space and water. This was a great trail with so many different environments! We felt like we were in the mountains, in the Ga forests, a swamy area, dry rocky areas throughout the trail. There were lots of water crossings. The waterfalls were a fun stop. We saw snakes, a fox, and armadillos! Would reccomend the trail!

Shaded. Rocky. Trees down. Muddy. Great views. 3 small picturesque waterfalls. Incline can be challenging.

Very rocky, watch your footing. Brought my dog but she found it difficult too and at some places there is narrow trail with steep drop off on shoulder. All said and done, a good challenge, nice scenery.

The trail was well shaded, it rained on our way back out of the trail but we were mostly covered my the leaves on the trees. This is a moderate trail, there are inclines in about the last .5 mile of the trail . Most areas that would be slippery were covered by built pathways to prevent you from fall though there are still muddy spots on the trail so expect to get a little dirty if recently rained. There was kids that seemed to do fine on the trail, but I’m sure it took those families a little longer due to rocky areas that you have a climb through. Dogs are allowed on this trail with a max of 6 ft leash. The waterfall at the end was well worth it, very nice ice cold water to dip your toes in after the trail.

If you want some fresh air & a good workout with scenery then this trail is perfect. A little crowded for my taste, but it gets the job done.

Took my kids (10, 8, 6, 4, and 9 months) and hiked to the falls. The kids played in the water at the falls and had fun splashing around. Trail was full of roots and rocks but doable for my kids who are accustomed to being outside.

Just got done with this one. I started at Mollyhugger and went counter clockwise around the trail. It makes for more of an uphill climb and the trail ends with an uphill element. Just a steady hike with no stops and got done in 3 hours.

Had an hour to spare. The portion my son and I hiked was a nice easy walk.

The Big Poplar Loop is one of my favorite loops in FDR park. It’s comprised of Sawtooth Trail and (approximately) miles 6 through 11 of the Pine Mountain Trail. Sawtooth is a pretty easy trail but is rocky with a couple of hills. There are a couple of small waterfalls. This morning spiders were out. There were quite a few webs to the side of the trail that resembled Chinese lanterns. There were a few smaller one across the trail as well, which was annoying but not unexpected. The PMT segment of the trail is the longer segment. It includes two pretty steep sections with switchbacks. There is also a nice section that follows a creek with more small waterfalls. On both sections, some parts of the trail near the creeks are perpetually muddy, even when the weather is dry. The big attraction on the PMT section is the Big Poplar, a large hollow tree that looks as though it could be a hobbit house. The walk is easier if you start at Fox Den Cove trailhead and go to Mollyhugger. That direction has you going downhill on the switchbacks as well as the hill that is next to Fox Den. Going the other direction gives you an uphill climb at the end of the hike. Total elevation gain is about the same either direction.
