Park at any of several lots along the route and combine the paved East Roswell Park trails with the trails at the newly acquired Seven Branches Property for a 3 mile hike through rugged terrain, along a cascading creek with several small waterfalls. Seven Branches property includes a few creek crossings of shallow creek, but a waterproof or resistant boot is nice if you don't want to worry about soaking a tennis shoe.

This loop combines the paved trails of East Roswell Park which wind around ballfields, playgrounds and along some of the steep wooded areas of the park, with the new dirt hiking trails of the 53 acre Seven Branches property. Together the trails make up a 3 mile loop that works for all ages and abilities. For kids the hike is excellent as it features multiple playgrounds options and even a spray ground in the summer months, but also has hours of potential for playing in the shallow creek building rock dams and bridges. For dog owners the East Roswell Park features an off leash section along the route. Adult hikers should find enough scenic interest in East Roswell Park along the paved trails to find the hike intersting but will love the scenic and more rugged Seven Branches portion of the hike. Start your hike at any of the East Roswell Parking areas including the East Roswell Library branch and make your way towards the Seven branches property along a paved trail. Seven Branches does not currently have designated parking area so any hike will require parking at one of the East Roswell Park lots and crossing Eves Road at either the signal at Holcomb Bridge Road or using the Pedestrian flashing beacon crosswalk at Eves Road and Eves Circle. Crossing at the light will give you the shortest section of sidewalk hiking. Once in Seven Branches enjoy the newest official Roswell Park and trails. The trails are mostly unofficial, but are typically well tread and easy to follow. There are three small cascades along the route and the route also includes at least two creek crossings. Small rock steps make it an easy crossing across the shallow creek. Slightly water proof/resistent shoes or boots are nice but not needed unless you are really worried about getting a little wet. Unless immediately after a heavy rain the creek is rarely more than two or three inches deep at the crossings.
