This is a walking trail along the Chattahoochee River. Please note that there are two different trails with different parking areas and starting points. Johnson Ferry South and North. This is the North loop. An easy walking trail that follows the Chattahoochee River. A return loop can be made by following a parallel trail along the buried oil pipeline. There is also an extension trail that leads up a creek to the north with some interesting small cliffs and rocky stream.

It's a pretty trail in the forest near the river. It's very flat and an easy loop.

A short trail with the river alongside you. It's pretty level so good for beginners.

The trail was easy to follow. Flat level for the most of it, with side trails to keep you by the river. Looks like park service is trying to "restore" this area back to its natural state. A lot of poison ivy growing through the trails by the river. We hiked to the "peak" and continued on to find where two creeks merged. However, this started into private property. Dogs allowed and access to the Chattahoochee to dip your toes. Overall good short day hike.
