Skip this trail if you want to go hiking in the woods. The only walking trails are really paved beside the river. Once you’re in the woods, it’s a constant barrage of mountain bikes speeding toward you and then getting upset if you don’t see them in time.

Nice and very scenic. Loved this park! Will be back soon!

Well maintained by SORBA. Diverse terrain of deciduous and pine trees, rises and falls, straightaways and switchbacks. Must stay alert for bikes AND roots/rocks. Avalanche loop 1 & 2 take you above the Little River at a dam and another white water spot. You can hear I-575 traffic, especially in winter. Avalanche loop 3 escapes car noise.

this trail is not what it used to be. so the rating went to a 3* I love ❤ this place and hang out quite often. I've since not gone so often because of all of the trees cut down and benches and swings along the river have been cleared out. its mostly concrete trail and bikers trail. watch out for the poop too, this park has some dirty hikers not picking up after their animals.

Easy walk, nice remains of the old mill and river views

Bikes on the sidewalk, when you cross the bridge it’s foot traffic. Very busy on nice weekends.

This seems more of a biking trail.... watch out on the weekends.

It's ok - trails need work and you have to dodge bikes that you often don't see in time

Trails seemed geared towards mountain biking rather Rahman hiking. It's pretty easy to get lost as well.

Lots of biking trails but the walking trail is really short.

There was only 1 walking trail! There was a lot of mountain bike trails, so you can't walk on the trails or you will get runned over by a mountain biker! It was only a 10 minute walk there and back on the walking trail! There were tons of people canoeing in the lake! So I would recommend that!

very crowded on the trails for walking.

Love it. Lots of ways to stop and take in the scenery and you can bring your dog!

I rode the trail for the first time. A lot of fun. The trail flowed perfect. It rained a few hours before I got there and was very muddy but that just added to the fun. Can't wait to return.

Great little park. Lots of places to swim, bike, hike or hang a hammock. A popular launch spot for kayaks too. Parking is really limited, so you might have trouble finding a spot on the weekends, but there's an overflow lot that's not too far of a walk. I find if I come here closer to dusk I need to wear bug spray, which is my only real complaint. There's lots of pools of standing water along the trail we generally walk, which just breeds mosquitoes. I get eaten alive here if I'm not prepared.

Great place to geocache as well as beautiful scenery

I go here quite frequently because it's only a ten minute drive from my house. I love the walk and my dog enjoys splashing around in the water. The only cons are the lack of parking and the crowds. On sunny days expect to park far away and deal with high traffic on the trail.

good trail some spots are deep and Rocky when you hit the RR tracks I have made it half way! not a trail I recommend for smaller children as you can see above I got stuck carrying my 3 yr 3 miles

Because of the snow and ice the road to the park was closed not far down from the gas station. Added about .8 miles more to the hike to get into the park. Perfect cold winter weather for a hike, no bikes but there was some idiots on quads and four wheelers tearing up the sod near the picnic pavilion.

An adventurous balance of switchbacks and small elevations, Avalanche 1 and 2 loops are dotted with beautiful ferns in a lush hardwood forest above the Little River. Twice I passed white water below.

Traveling against the mountain bike traffic is no problem. Most travelling on wheels are friendly enough to thank me for yielding and let me know if they are aware of more bikes behind them.

Most of these are really mountain bike trails and not so much hiking trails. There's a couple hiking only trails to the old rope mill, but I'd stick to Kennesaw Mtn or Pine Mtn to get any real hiking cardio in.

it's a fun day spot with the family. Nothing to hard and my boys love to fish here as well. I grew up five minutes down the road and I very much appreciate what they've done here.

Poor setup....not safe for hikers....should have days for biking only and days for hiking only....bikers will run you over! I only gave it 2 stars!

lots of options due to smaller loops

Hiked Avalanche 1, 2 and snow! Was a treat for this snow-loving northerner to get to experience a great trail and some winter weather. No bikes to contend with because of the weather. Really enjoyed this hike and think it's on the easier end of the moderate scale - great if you're looking to up your distance without adding elevation gain just yet.

great if I could figure out how to get out once in awhile. totally my fault. need colour marks for directionally challenged

These seem to be excellent trails for bikers, however if you intend on hiking it's not the best. Those on bikes don't make any attempt to slow down if they're coming toward you which can be challenging if you have a dog and must jump out of the way. If you enjoy paved paths there's a significantly shorter yet beautiful area to walk along.
