This was a great trail. I'm so glad we hiked it. My 4 year old did get tired towards the end, but my 6 and 8 year old did great. My baby was content in her backpack carrier.

Easy trail. Canyon 5 was the best area. We went early morning, so we were finishing when massive amounts of people were arriving.

Easy trail. Canyon 5 had the best views. We went in early March, and it was very wet in some areas, but definitely better than in heat of the summer in Georgia. Placed was packed by the time we left.

We tried to do the loop trail, but found to do the loop you had to go past barriers of closed off areas, so we ended up walking most of this one instead. Doing the loop section in the lower right of the map, we lost connection right about the time we couldn't tell where to turn. Felt like we were deliberately getting lost. Set a time of when we would need to turn back, and found where to turn right before we had to turn back. Fun time, wonderful colors, loved it!

Great views and fun day trip! Definitely try to get there early- pretty crowded by noon (and not a lot of masks). Consider wearing boots/old sneakers since there’s lots of mud!

A bit busy, a bit muddy, and totally worth it! This is not the trail for peace and quiet. The climbing offshoots in the canyon were challenging and sandy. Hiking shoes/boots are a must have. Canyons are sandy. Did outer white loop as well canyon floor.

I did the perimeter and the canyon trails below. It’s cute for what it is. The views are not spectacular around the perimeter or down in the canyon but it’s definitely neat for Georgia. There were some areas that had some good views and areas to go. If you’re going on the canyon floor definitely have shoes you don’t mind getting wet or water proof shoes.

This part of the park is not as nice as the walk around the perimeter, in my opinion. You better wear waterproof boots if you’re going to cover this part of the canyon. The paths are really just sandy streams that you have to traverse. Another problem with my visit was that there were so many people walking the canyon bottom that I could not enjoy the experience. Some people just hung out in certain places and blocked other people coming into those areas. One guy was walking around with a boom box just to see how loud it would sound in different alcoves. Too many people for me in this part of the park.

Too crowded. views are pretty in some spots, but not worth the 3 hour drive if coming from the north. Better to hike the N GA mountains if they are accessable.

definitely more a moderate trail going to and from the canyon trails, but otherwise easy. down in the canyons was pretty wet from the recent rainfall, but not so deep to make it undesirable. Definitely warrants more waterproof shoes than basic sneakers.

Despite limited views at the bottom of the canyon, extra points for very different hiking terrain than the rest of the state. Much of this hike is on sand with running water atop it, so bring shoes that you don't mind getting a bit wet. I used the Atlanta Trails map for this as it combines the canyon floor with the outer loop.

Moving to GA I realized there are only hills not mountains. They call this the “mini Grand Canyon “. It’s a short sweet trail. Not a hike really. Very easy and well marked. They have a cute gift shop. Dog friendly & kid friendly. Solid family fun.
