This trail winds through dense, jungle-like vegetation, with diverse and varying landscapes to enjoy. With some changes in elevation, this trail is somewhat brief but can provide a decent challenge. The major payoff is a spot on the river underneath the suspension bridge, affectionately called "Dog Beach" by locals, where hikers allow their dogs to play in the water while off-leash.

Overgrown with invasive species. Nice area for dog owners, but I much prefer other trails around Atlanta for hiking or trail running.
