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.

A great moderate trail. Beside the creek it is more wet than muddy. Just enough steeps to make you wonder what the lines is for strenuous. Started early and still had to deal with a Georgia muggy summer day.

The trail beagle and I did the loop on 6/18. Hot humid day but that's what you get in Georgia in June. Nice hike, nothing overly challenging or too steep. The moderate rating is accurate. Most of the stream crossings are no more than a trickle this time of year. As far as waterfalls, well I really did not encounter any. I hiked this in sandals and need to make a point.... be careful of the ants on the last mile or so, they don't like you there and they will not be hesitant to prove it. We'll probably be back in the fall or winter.

The was outstanding. My wife daughters 10 and 12 along with our dog had no problems hiking it. Trail was clear of any debris and was clearly marked. Beautiful scenery.

Wonderful hike . Beautiful scenery .. ever changing ❤️ lovely little waterfall .

I had a great time hiking this trail with my new hiking buddy. I highly recommend this trail

This a great short trail for anyone wanting to get out in nature and enjoy its beauty. Starting at mile zero near the callaway country store and going up the PMT is the easiest route as it goes down the mountain after the 190 road crossing. If you want a more challenging hike, cross 190 at the country store and reverse the loop. This trail has wonderful views and fresh spring water near the little bridges camp site. I take my 11 year old daughter on this one and she loves it!

NBD, Lol. Donut, my 9 mo old German Shepard said there could have been more water and bugs to eat.

awesome trail!!!

We ended up doing the Wolfden Loop by mistake...read the signs wrong! So 4.7 turned into 6.7 and we were definitely treated to some beautiful scenery. Went clockwise so did the Falls last... started at 9:30am Sunday and we were practically alone. It was fantastic. Our dogs ha d a great time too in the mud and muck and playing in the streams. Definitely recommend!

$5 parking; lots of fellow hikers but friendly and beautiful views of multiple falls. Lots of trail trash picked up. Bring bug spray.

We have hiked this beautiful trail many times. Two weeks ago we hiked it and the mountain laurel was in bloom. I have never seen it as beautiful as it was at that time. The children played in the water at every opportunity. The falls are always the highlight. We have seen king snakes and water snakes at the falls. What a treat! I would recommend this hike to young and old. It does get a little strenuous toward the middle of the hike. Be prepared and bring water.

We really enjoyed this trail. We got a late start but the hike is mostly in the canopy so didn't get too hot. I thought it was easy to follow due to the obviousness of the trail and less due to blazes, but intersections and trail crossings are well signed. Excellent little hike to get you your heart rate up. We will do it again.

$5 parking, great trail, not as busy as the main pmt. bring bug spray. Odie’s overlook is beautiful one mile in. Should be incredible in the Fall time.

Amazing trail. This is my third time hiking it and it is just as beautiful as the first time. Highly recommend.

Family of 8... we loved it! My 11 yo said it was mostly downhill!

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.

Completed Wolf Den Loop fall 2018 and set Easter Weekend 2019 for a little longer hike. Arrived Friday 19th after the storm and a few inches of rain. Tent camped at FDR park. 20 Apr: Hiked the Pool Trial to the PMT then proceeded to Mollyhugger Parking lot, crossed the road onto Sawtooth and continued to the CCC fish hatchery at MM3. Trial is well maintained and marked with 3 fresh blow downs across the trail. Stream crossings weren't an issue since water level had receded overnight. The weather may have influenced some from the trail as I only encountered 2 folks. The loop is approx 13 miles and completed in 6 hrs. Returning mid-May and start o-dark thirty from the TV tower and hike thru to the Country Store in a day. Using this area to gauge mileage and pack weight for future AT hikes.

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.

4/7/19 $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.
