Well worth the short drive from ATL. You can hike all day in this state park and the water is gorgeous. This particular trail gets a little rough in some spots but it's well marked and very hard to get lost. Highly recommend:)

I loved this hike. It was beautiful along the creek, and has plenty of tree cover for shade. The trail map at the visitor center doesn't match the markings on the actual trails, and even as an experienced hiker, I'll admit, I did get lost on the way back and had to use my phone to determine location and direction back. However, if you back track the same way you come in on the red trail there's no confusion. There is a decent amount of scramble if you go far enough, plus history. The mill ruins are well preserved and easy to see. There are many spots where you are able to walk out into the creek on rocks too for some great photos. I look forward to going back to do some of the other trails.

Now this is a trail! I loved every second of it and I didn't even get to do the whole thing. Plenty of elevation with a beautiful lake. It has a river you can walk across on rocks that are smooth. Great for swimming as well. Beautiful scenery. I definitely recommend it for everyone.
