the waterfall was very pretty! definitely worth the ride to Atlanta; however, there REALLY needs to be more markers on the trail because I got turned around! there were many little trails to go off on but I had a hard time manuevering they it! thankfully I would run across other people and they would tell me which way to go!

if you want a quick verdant getaway in the midst of urban sprawl this will do

Quite loud with surrounding traffic, which can be expected since it is inside the perimeter. Very easy to walk however the trails were littered with garbage, which shows lack of care on both the city and the visitors. Probably won’t visit again, but don’t regret visiting completely.

Nice trails for running. Good ground. Interspersed loops to go and loopback around as long as you want to go. Cool creeks and little falls, plus big granite boulders to play on. So glad I made a pitstop here during my Thursday errands. Will be back

This is a beautiful jewel inside the perimeter that’s a wonderful spot for trail run, hike, walk, or photo shoot.

We visited this short & easy trail on a beautiful fall day. The parking was very convenient (an entire lot), which we appreciated. Since it was in the middle of the area, it was thoughtful of them to do that.

The trail itself wasn't too difficult. The waterfall comes pretty quickly once you start the trail. That part was very serene and we enjoyed it. The rest of the trail is a loop. Because it hasn't been raining much, the creek part was a little underwhelming, but I'm sure once there is more water it's great.

One of the main reasons for not giving the trail 4 stars was because of the lack of signage. There were small wooden pointers to tell you what trail you were going toward, but no colored markers to keep you on track.

Overall, this trail is good for a quick hike that includes a nice waterfall not too far from the city.
