Nestled in the rolling hills of Georgias upper piedmont, this is one of northern Georgias best kept secrets. A beautiful stream flows through the park, providing the perfect setting for an after-picnic stroll. Hikers can follow either the short nature trail or the longer perimeter trail that winds through hardwoods and crosses creeks. Animal lovers should keep an eye out for wildlife while passing food plots along the perimeter trail. Two ponds are open for public fishing (license required). Golfers will enjoy Highland Walk Golf Course with clubhouse, golf pro and junior/senior discounts.

These trails are wonderful and it's such a lovely and well maintained state park. I like the challenge of the Broad River loop trail with it's significant hills.

Pay $5 to park. I didn't know about paid parking and was lucky to find the last dollar.
Trails other than outer perimeter (more heavily traveled) were narrow. My dog walked in front of me. The Victoria loop around the creek is too high above the water for my pup to enter it.
Oddly there is also a vehicle creek crossing I wasn't warned about when they suggested I use that trail. It's deep. I waited to see another car go through before I tried it.
Very nice staff.
And the drive to get there was beautiful.

Beautiful scenery.

We drove around the park looking for signs to the trailheads but could not find any. We parked in front of an unmarked path and just started walking. After walking for about a quarter mile we came upon a pond at the end of which we discovered the trailhead to the orange path. We followed these orange paint markings on the trees the whole way through and ended up completing just under 3 miles.

We especially enjoyed Victoria Trail, beautiful creek side walk

Trails are not clearly marked. We walked one loop twice. Ended up doing 5 miles and it was a nice walk but got frustrated with not being able to determine which way we were going.

The trails were not clearly marked causing us to actually loop one trail twice. It is listed as easy but some areas have intense inclines. Total hike if all trails are walked (and one twice) was 10 miles. It was beautiful and a great work out.
