I grew up near in Roswell. Vickery Creek used to be hard to access area and the waterfall area was a popular spot to sunbathe and hang out with friends while skipping school at the original RHS on Hwy 9. There is a hole in the wall of the waterfall (hint: on the right side) you could hide behind tbe water wall in if in the rare instance one of Roswell finest came looking for truent kid's. Its still there. I checked when my 10 year old and I walked the trail. Love that area.

Scott Calder's review from two days ago is spot on. Also, at one part of the trail, there currently is a tree fallen with branches sticking up; the trail is still passable, but that tree needs to be cleaned up.

Trail is relatively easy (some up and down but nothing too hard) and some roots on the trail (but less than usual for a hike). The "waterfalls"are actually dams spilling over. Trail is poorly marked but does have atypical maps along the way. Once you figure out the maps (there is a "you are here" - marked by one of the map pins being a different color), it would be impossible to get lost. We saw several deer and no humans except near the covered bridge and dams. Near the dams there are moderately steep paths if you want to get closer but nothing that requires climbing or anything beyond vigorous walking. The steepest climb is going from the covered bridge (where we started) to the trail. Very quiet with only rare glimpses of the surrounding city.
