I'm giving this trail only two stars because the only good thing about this trail is the river view, other than that, the trail is very narrow with tall grasses on either side so check for ticks. We have experienced a lot of rain lately so part of the trail that goes further into the woods is muddy and slippery. Not much to see and you really can't walk this path at a fast pace because of the roots and some parts are uneven and you can slip or fall into the river if you're not careful. Just not for me.

First to Review

Starting from the Abbotts Bridge Boat Ramp and ending at Scott Hudgens Park soccer field, the trail is 0.3 miles or 0.6 round trip. Best to start at the Abbotts Bridge Unit. To the ravine, the trail is a well-trodden path; but past the ravine, the trail is like a deer run and hardly ever used. Just as well, as the most interesting part of the trail is near the boat ramp with its massive oaks and unobstructed views of the river. This Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area (CRNRA) unit is maintained by the National Park Service (NPS). Dogs are allowed but must be on leash. The NPS charges a parking fee. The highlight of this CRNRA unit is its boat ramp. There is also an ample parking lot and picnic area with a pavilion and restrooms. The trail itself however is heavily overgrown and best traveled during Fall / Winter.
