Nice trail. More traffic on the west side than the east side.

HikingGreat!

Cloudy and cool Sunday morning stroll. I had quite a few fellow hikers out there, starting from the East trailhead and doing all of both loops. Shared the summit both times, too. I was glad to have my boots, as the rocky terrain made footing questionable in spots. Or maybe I just need stronger ankles (saw three women in those stretchy, low-profile Nike sneakers and wondered how...). Note that parking out East is terribly limited. I dig this hike and will gladly do it again.

Well-marked trail, not too crowded on a sunny Saturday.

Beautiful day and few on trail. About 1 mile up then 1 mile down then 1 mile up and finally another mile down. Good exercise.

A nice trail. Too crowded to feel like you’re out hiking.

HikingGreat!

Beautiful trail. Enough incline to get a decent workout but not difficult. Recommend going early to avoid crowds. Got there at 8:30am and only 3 other cars were in the lot, but when I left at 11am the lot was full.

We really liked this trail system. First time visiting today. Heavily trafficked but everyone was friendly and made room for each other. We completed the entire trail with our 12 and 9 year old sons. Rocks, roots, uphills, downhills great hiking trails.

Great trail. Easily accessible free parking lot. The elevation was easily handled on the switchbacks. Some muddy areas but no water crossing by foot.

Enjoyed the hike. Took photos descending the east loop (clockwise). You can see so much more of the trail in the winter months. If you lost a pair of glasses in a brown case, they are on the large rock at the trailhead (west).

West Loop is crowded, rocky, full of trail shortcuts as you hike up switchbacks, and features the “Fatman Squeeze”. Be a responsible hiker and do not take these shortcuts, as you will continue to negatively erode the mountain side. The David G. Archer overlook offers views of Cartersville, Lake Allatoona, surrounding hills in Bartow County Greenspace as well as Plant Bowen, a coal-generating plant that has the largest generating capacity in North America. East Loop is way less crowded, featuring a creek and more gradual slopes, unlike the rocky switchbacks on the West Loop.
