Explore the most popular trails in Victoria Bryant State Park with hand-curated trail maps and driving directions as well as detailed reviews and photos from hikers, campers and nature lovers like you.

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.

The trails are hard to follow. But I looked at that as a challenge to be better in navigation. The further out you get the more beautiful it is.

Pretty and quiet. Trails are well-maintained, but poorly marked. Follow the orange or purple blazes, keep right at forks, and when in doubt consult the map. A small portion of the beaver pond loop was inaccessible due to swampy conditions. The park requires a $5 parking fee - if you don't have cash you can use a card at the office

We did the orange blazed loop of this trail (about 3 miles - called the perimeter trail) and really enjoyed it. Like other reviewers, did have to make heavy use of the AllTrails map, though - the park maps are confusing. Took our dogs and it was a great hike for them.

Beautiful trail.

I enjoying hiking this with my dogs still looking for this purple trail but the perimeter trail is a wonderful workout and in the fall there is very little traffic

Our GPS said 6.6 miles, not 5.8, There were two places where the river/swamp covered the trail and we had to try and walk around. Deep enough that if you don't have waterproof boots your feet will get wet. As another reviewer wrote, we heard lots of gunshots on the purple trail. Be careful transitioning from the Perimeter Trail (orange) to the Broad River Trail (purple). The park map does not show it accurately. We walked right past it until we consulted the AllTrails map, which is accurate. Enough ups and downs to get a good workout.

this was a pretty Trail at the beginning. The last Loop which is marked by the purple blazes was not as pretty back in the woods lots of leaves. The trails were nice and smooth in some areas but in other areas big ruts lots of rocks and leaves covered the trails. The part of the trail near the Beaver Dam overlook was partly covered in water do to the Beavers doing quite a number with their dams. It was nice that there were a couple of bathrooms along the trail that belong to the golf course that is right next to it. And vending machines. during the first part of our hike there were a lot of gunshot sounds we were wondering if we were near a range? Very quiet today only one other hiker on the entire Trail. The camping looks very nice!

Not a bad trail. Certain forks don’t have signs so you could get confused. Also there’s an area near the swamp that’s all mud, so be careful.

This trail is very well maintained by the staff at V.B.S.P. It is always nice and clean. Being fom the area, I've been down these trails many times, and they are always well kept. There are small benches all along the trail for you to sit and rest or take in the beauty of the park and of the trails. There isn't a whole lot of traffic on them either, which I do enjoy. It's just nice sometimes to just leave your cell phone in the car, and just being out on the trails alone and peaceful. My favorite times to visit are the early spring and early to mid fall.

Hiked on a cold day. Saw a huge buck on golf course. No people on trails but never really away from stuff. Pretty park. See how it can be super busy in warm weather.

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.

Nice trail with a great finish near an old bridge over the river. Shoal in river perfect for dogs and kids on Summer days.

Nice trail and relatively easy. Trail is good and clearly marked and is a good work out. Scenery is very nice and the park is quiet and peaceful. Enjoyed the hike around the park and lake very much.

I love the trails in this park because you can do a shorter run, about 3 miles (says it's 4.1, but my iPod pedometer says almost 3), or literally hike/run for a couple of hours. If you take the Broad River Loop Trail, it adds another 3.5 miles, with the terrain being pretty intense at times. The trails are usually pretty clear (except after a bad storm, because a few tree limbs may fall on the path), so you don't have to worry about pulling a muscle by slipping on pine straw or tripping on a tree root. The canopy created by the trees can somewhat seal in the humidity and cause a nice "hot and steamy" experience, so bring water! :) The bugs can get a bit hungry and aggressive, so I had to break down and use bug spray eventually. It's quiet, the views are nice, and there are rarely more than a couple of others on the trails--if any. The park staff are very nice and helpful, with maps upon request. The trails are marked with different markings on the trees (purple, orange, yellow, red). If you view the attached link, it provides more information about Victoria Bryant Park, has beautiful pictures, directions, and a map of the trails. I wouldn't say the map of the trails is "dead on" accurate, but it's close.

Without a doubt; VBP is one of the most secret treasures in Georgia. The park is very clean, the trail is great and the rangers there are wonderful to talk with. There are three main trails, orange, red, and purple. The Orange trail starts at the gate near the fish lake and heads North West 1 mile towards a V intersection. At this intersection you can turn left for the red trail that will lead you 4.1 miles around the perimeter of the park. Turn right for the 3.5 purple trail which will lead you across a main street and skirt the golf course. You will see the beaver pond which is really awesome to view. As you continue north you will hit the loop of the park. You can go either right or left as you will end up exactly where you entered into the loop. Overall you can take both trails for 8.6 miles of hiking or do the loop for 5.5 miles or the red trail for 5.1 miles. Overall; it was a great time and wonderful adventure in the early morning hours.

Very nice double track trail that is well maintained. There is actually over 8 miles of up and down trails.
