Half of this is the popular Cochran Shoals Trail, then when you reach the Columns Drive end (if coming from Powers Ferry end), you keep going and just a little ways down, take a right into the woods on the trail that goes up. I’ve always wondered where these trails went.

It’s an easy incline. Once you get to a certain point, there’s a 6’x9’ fenced in memorial — a gravesite (see photo). I don’t have any info on it, but it’s quite unusual just out there on the trail. Maybe someone lived up there long ago. I’ll edit this once I find out.

At that point I turned left and the rest of the trail was easy, pretty, sparsely populated (I only saw two other people). The trail is used a lot for mountain bikes so you need to be careful because parts of it are very narrow.

It was a really nice loop and a nice change from just the Cochran Shoals trail, and it’s a little longer.

For some reason ALL TRAILS is loaded with this same loop under multiple names. Probably the second most boring of Chattahoochee hikes close to ATL.
