Very snakey. Needs to be cut back.

Great trail! So many options for walking, jogging, biking. Kid friendly & pet friendly!

We pretended we were in a jurassic wonderland during the last few half-miles of this trail. Downed trees and big leaves made this a harrowingly beautiful experience. The river was filled to the brim and flowed as a river should. Exactly as nature intended.

I did 2 miles along the river with a small loop at the end.

I did a slightly different loop, so it was 4 miles with the same path in and out along the river. Nice hike. No bamboo.

While this was great in the past it was so overgrown we couldn't make it to the water part this time. huge disappointment.

Low traffic trail with nice shade that goes along the river.

Love it! True trail running. Roots and rocks and steep places and flat places. Sunday morning run and really not a ton of people. Highly recommend it and can’t understand why anyone would give it 3 or 4 stars. This is a great place in an urban Atlanta area. Don’t kid yourself this is not suburbia. To have this big of a place to get 8 miles like this is unheard of.

Awesome for children

The longest trail is 5miles. Liked it.

the waterfall was very pretty! definitely worth the ride to Atlanta; however, there REALLY needs to be more markers on the trail because I got turned around! there were many little trails to go off on but I had a hard time manuevering they it! thankfully I would run across other people and they would tell me which way to go!

if you want a quick verdant getaway in the midst of urban sprawl this will do

Todo el camino del recorrido está pavimentado, esta lleno de arte, muy bonito lugar para caminar, andar en bicicleta...

Fantastic! More of a historic walk then a hike but absolutely beautiful and fascinating.

Not a good experience, too much jungle.

Quite loud with surrounding traffic, which can be expected since it is inside the perimeter. Very easy to walk however the trails were littered with garbage, which shows lack of care on both the city and the visitors. Probably won’t visit again, but don’t regret visiting completely.

Wonderful hidden gem for a short walk in the woods. Nice trail to take your dog for a walk.

Nice scenery. Trail really isn’t well marked, so the map is very helpful. Lightly traveled. Would go back.

Great trail with a wonderful view of the Chattahoochee River. The scenery of the whole trail is beautiful!

Nice morning hike. Parking fills up quickly.

Went in July 2018. Very flat. Took one of the early side trails and the trail was just a bit flooded (2ish inches deep water). We took our 1 and 3 year old on the walk. 3 year old had no trouble for over a mile (great for him). There were some surprisingly very low traffic areas off the main trail. Lots of flowers and butterfly once you get off the main trail. Parking lot was VERY busy on a Sunday morning at 945.

Very steep hills, I wouldn't classify it as "trail running" but the views are really nice! Beautiful in the mornings especially.

Great neighborhood walk/running trail around a large pond.

Here on business. Great trail for morning miles along the river. Nice rolling terrain.

Nice and well maintained trail. Staff and rangers are extremely friendly and helpful. Would strongly suggest to keep a map, available in visitor center. Ample amount of parking space.

create a bike only-pedestrian only lane for safer riding and walking.

Nice walk with family, dog and small kids. Are at least two beaches along the trail for dogs and kids.

Love this trail especially as a newer trail runner. Nice staff at the visitors center as well.
