Beautiful spring time hike! Brought our 3 year old with us. Some parts “moderate”, otherwise fairly easy!

HikingGreat!

Very beautiful trail system with a ginormous waterfall. This one is definitely worth a revisit as it has enough challenge and beauty to feel accomplished and not exhausted. Lots of wildlife, running creeks, kind people, and old buildings and mills that I am sure have a story to tell. This particular trail distance was about 3.6 miles long with many side trails that can be made for a longer or shorter hike. I would highly recommend having an app like AllTrails to keep you on your selected course and from potentially getting lost.

The waterfall itself is close by. But we did the entire trail. It’s about 3.5 miles and there are a lot of different trails you can take. Some of it has elevation but it’s not too bad. Even came across a deer. Overall a refreshing hike.

Couple corrections to the AllTrails description The main parking area is off Riverside ROAD, not Riverside Drive. There are at least three parking lots - the CRNRA pay lot on Riverside Rd, a bigger free lot at the Old Mill and free lot on Oxbo Rd. You can enter the trail at any of those locations. There is a bathroom facility at the Old Mill.

Nice trail but be sure to use the app - lots of turn offs that could shorten or extend your hike.

The waterfalls are amazing ! You can also swim in that area ... it’s no deep at all. The trails that border the river are breathtaking ... And the hiking trails will get you busting a sweat .

Great trek - lots of little spurs and offshoots. Some steeper hills, but mostly flat or easy inclines, lots of roots and rocks in places. Old Roswell Mill across the Chattahoochee was a great area as well. Lots of people at the state park, but the trail walk was not overcrowded. Saw a hawk, lizard, squirrels, and other birds today.

This is a really good series of trails to just wander, which is pretty much what I did. There are a handful of spots that require some careful footwork but most of it is pretty level though there are some exposed roots in places. There are several access points and it’s relatively quiet even being close to a high traffic area.

For a trial that was practically off a highway and overlooking some residential homes it wasn’t bad! The first half was okay, but got exponentially better when I went down to the creek, and put my feet in the water. The trail markers were all over the place and I had to constantly look at my phone to make sure I was on track. Saw a couple does. Overall pretty good!

We did run into the trail being washed out and nowhere to cross safely and had to double back, but we got to see 2 waterfalls and most of the trail is well traveled.

I was planning on doing a loop but when I realized I was “on” that loop, the last part of it was extremely rocky and didn’t appear very safe for my dog and I to trek so we ended up turning around and tracing ourselves on part of the trail. Other than not great markings, it’s a beautiful trail! Wasn’t super populated and the weather was gorgeous.
