Nice easy hike but was not a loop, it was an out and back. 10 miles total on GPS.

Great trails! Although after 3.5 miles the trail has a sign saying that the trail is now closed and to turn around. In another mile it comes to a gravel road and I didn't see the trail again. I took the road back around, but it ended up being 19 miles around.
Also, google maps doesn't bring you to the right place, so just follow the signs when you get close.
Definitely recommend checking this place out!

I went here with a couple friends and ran about 7 miles of the trail. It's got a few hills, some pretty steep but overall it's pretty flat and follows the river the entire time. I greatly enjoyed the observation tower. The trail is also very maintained and clean - which is a huge plus for me, especially considering it's a popular destination. You will see a lot of deer - we probably saw about 30.

This is our favorite park! We just finished a grueling 10-mile triathlon of backpacking, hiking, camping, and canoeing! My girlfriend tells me I'm full of doodo but I'm just telling you the truth. I would not lie to my Chattahoochee Bend friends. Really though, this is our favorite park! At the Ranger station ask for Jade the Naturalist, she's Awesome!
