Fun going either direction

well maintained and not too crowded if you go at the right time. Beautiful overlook

I saw several cool deer hanging out.

Nice little North Atlanta hike. The trail is well-maintained and the views are great from the top. Indian Seats are cool. Not too crowded but we started early.

An awesome trail just minutes outside of Cumming.

Enjoyed this..beginning hiker..views at the observation deck were great. Not a lot of people on the trail.

Definitely a moderate hike. Nice day. We hiked it on a Monday morning and saw only one group of hikers.

The best quick hike for the view there is.

A local treasure!

Excellent trail! View at the top of the mountain is beautiful! Easy for all ages. And will definitely get your heart rate up.

Took my 2.5 year old and my 6 year old with us. It was a good hike for all four of us. Some elevation... the back half of the trail was wider and more flat. Overall a great day for us all!

Nice super easy hike!

Love this place, easy trail and an amazing view if you make it all the way to the top!

Definitely beautiful views if you have good visibility that day. Free parking with lots of available spots. Lots of room when you get to the top. Not a hard trail at all, I would classify this as easy instead of moderate. This would be a great running trail.

Not difficult at all. We had a hiker for whom this was her first hike ever. She found this to be easy

Great view close to town

The Indian Seats Trail is 3.2 miles and has nice views with food incline. I usually hike the three Hilltop, Mountainside, Ridgeline Trail Loop which is another 5 miles. Both together would make it a little over 8 miles. If your really trying to put in miles you can hike both loops twice and maybe on the second go around you can do it the other way for a different look. That would be almost 16.5 miles in that case.

I like this set of trails it feels like one trail when you do all three. It's a good 5 miles with some good incline and I always add the Indian Seats Trail for another 3.2 miles making it a little over 8 miles. If your really trying to put in miles you can hike both loops twice and maybe on the second go around you can do it the other way for a different look. That would be almost 16.5 miles in that case.

Love it

I hate how dogs aren’t allowed here, that’s the only thing I don’t like, because I take my dogs hiking everywhere! Other than that, it’s very beautiful, and not a very long hike either.

My wife and I did this trail a few weeks ago. The trail is nice, moderately strenuous, and well maintained. We did hit a couple of spots where some markers would have been helpful; markers are lacking here. The view from the top is great, worth the effort! No dogs allowed.

Great hike. Took us an 1 hr. and 45 min. with a stop at the top. Slow going on the one side of the trail because of a lot of mud. Hiking shoes needed a bit of hosing off!
