Civil War Ruins, Secluded Ponds, Waterfalls; listed as "difficult" due to rocky and steep terrain for short sections of RED trail. WHITE trail is mostly roadbed. Changed name from Woody's Gap which is an AT trailhead in Suches, GA on HWY60. Sweetwater Creek State Park has over nine miles of hiking trails and is located only a short distance from downtown Atlanta. The Sweetwater Creek Conservation Park was created to preserve the unique natural and cultural history of the area and this hike along the creek includes a trip to the ruins of the New Manchester Manufacturing Company. The mill made clothing for the Confederate troops during the Civil War before it was burned by General Sherman in 1864. Along the creek (which looks more like a river), there are numerous overlooks including one of Sweetwater Falls located at the junction of the red and white trails.

If you take the yellow trail and jump onto the orange than finish with the yellow it is about 7.5 miles with almost no traffic and good elevation. The white trail is mainly for dog walkers but still a good trail. Black berries are just starting to ripen. Makes a good snack as long as your away from the dog trail. You can think about that one. Lol
