An amazing and unexpected trail! Most ruin trails have only one building and a fence around them. This one has ruins sprinkled throughout that are almost untouched. A great hike with lots of cuts to customize your trail!

Wonderful hike in the city!!! From ruins and river views, it was an easy hike. There were a few hills but over all it was easy.

Parts of it are really beautiful but there’s also many downed trees.

Nice trails. Went down to old paper mill ruins. There also is a nice pond. Completed 5.75 miles. Mostly in woods- make sure to follow the signs for daily directions (opposite of bikes) as this can get dangerous.

Beware of snakes along banks of creek. Have never seen snakes so early in the year.

Great trails, it was kind of confusing at first but we followed the maps and asks fellow hikers! It’s great and you can have a nice picnic by the water and ruins (route SC 27)

I tried to follow Chandler’s trail and epic fail. I got lost six times. Dead ended at an apartment complex. Slipped in red dirt. Ended up in the Chattahoochee Forest Trail. Exited Sope Farm Creek subdivision and Google mapped on concrete back to my car lol
