There is a mix of everything on these trails. There is a flat portion along the Etowah River, hillier portions father back in the woods, and a crushed gravel loop for light exercise. Local boy scout troops make bridges and do upkeep of trails. Very well-maintained and beautiful. Trails are well-marked with colors.

Have to go about three miles to see a sight worth looking at.

I run this trail every week. It's well marked and kept clean. Has a few low spots where it collects rain water, but overall very quiet and very nice.

It has spurs that offer varying difficulty but none of it is challenging.

Nice trail close to Atlanta. Easy tho.

I love this trail! Cool bridges, always see wildlife, rolls along the river for most of it. Done it dozens of times-always fun.

great hike, not crowded, but I was unsure how far I actually went due to all the off shoots.

Storm damage with trees across several of the trails. My husband and I do enjoy this trail but we are somewhat familiar with all the tracks you can take. I suggest downloading a color map so you can follow which you want to take. Although dogs aren't allowed, several bring them, which I am completely fine with, but wanted to let others know just in case. It's a good workout but not too difficult.

Pam and I hiked this for the 5th time yesterday. I have to agree that the train marking is confusing. We did the entire loop and started by following the white blaze marks. This takes you alongside the river as seen on the map. When we got to the the little open area where the church can be seen we turned down the side trail with the warning signs and looped back to the "crossroads" shown on the map. We retraced our steps for a short distance and turned left onto the pink marked trail right where a tree has fallen over the trail.. The pink markers take you up the grade to the switchback where you make a 90 degree turn onto the yellow marked trail. This takes you back to Boling Park. The AllTrails app really helps but I thought this information would also be useful because there are lots of cross trails and it can get confusing. There really needs to be a legend for the base marks but I have been unable to find one anywhere.

I will concur the markings are very difficult to follow and we ended up hiking the white markings completely off the trail. Get a printed color map.

My husband and I want on the trail yesterday for the first time and I thought it would be 5 miles, but it turned into 8 miles because it was not marked all the way through. We were following the white markers and it stopped at around 5 miles and we had to go all the way back the way we came. Not marked well, we were extremely tired.

This place is great, I have been running these trails for a while now. No bikers just hikers and runners. These trails are open I ran there today 5-29-17. Only way it could be better is if the trails were better marked. If you park near the covered pavilion you can pick the trail head up just through the gate and then to the right into the woods. There is some loops back there just pay attention not to get lost.

Only the front gravel path is open. The back wooded section is closed.

Nice trail! Going back when all the leaves are on the trees.

No map at the park to show the blazed trails. Great workout! Trails needs some clearing from our recent storms.

The 1 mile crushed gravel loop is in good shape and appears to be what most use. The wooded portion is in need of some love and maintenance. While still passable, the build up of leaves, pine straw and water erosion is starting to take its toll.

The wooded portion is 'ok' for trail running, just use caution on the leaves and pine straw.

This trail is really good, you have some climbs, waterfalls and the river view. I agree the marking can be confusing, I left the map open on my phone and that worked out good. Coming back when the leaves are on the trees.

I like this little trail. It's very easy, but i always see wildlife of some kind- that keeps it interesting

Nice trail. Marked very good but for the white marking are very poor. Purple and Yellow is easy to follow.

Fun hike but the marking is terrible.

Good trail. Especially for being close to town.

Needs better markings. Do not depend on the white blaze...

Hard to find from the directions given. The trail is in Boling Park in Canton GA. Drive all the way around the park to park at the end of the road. The trail is at the end of the crushed gravel loop. Loved it! Easy, but pretty.

this is literally one of my all-time favorite spots. yes it's hard to find but that's part of its charm to me. I appreciate the fact that it's in plan sight but still hidden ;) just remember sometimes you have to leave the gravel and walk along the road less traveled.

If you love trail running then you'll enjoy the speed of this trail. Excellent trail and river views. This trail has poor markings that can leave you frustrated but not lost. Enjoy the adventure!!!

Hiked 2 miles back to the fork in the river. We enjoyed it very much, even commenting on the great job the Boy Scouts did on making the bridges. Saw several deer.

An easy to moderate hike. Wish people wouldn't litter. Nice walk along the river.

A good hike, will most likely do it again but early and longer.
