Nice difficulty with several options to take. Tons of dogs and trail runners. Bamboo forest, great views of the river, and beautiful places to take in nature. My husband and I hiked over 5 miles today and had an incredible time.

saw a baby snapping turtle and enjoyed the trails but nothing over spectacular today. was looking for trails to ride mountain bike on but found nothing really.. but realized there's no MTB riding listed here..

Nice walking-lots to see

Low traffic. Very peaceful. Nice elevation changes. Quiet. Sounds and views of the river.

Good path if you have a smaller dog

Good

Two short sections under power lines — but worth it to get into the woods. We went after a rain and it was a bit of a bog. There are elevated walkways on portions and bridges across larger water features. A great hike that is surprising is in town.

Great hike and well maintained paths.

Great trails on the east side of the Chattahoochee. Nice views of the river and the overlooks are spectacular. Well worth the $5 parking fee. Get there early on the weekend. It fills up fast.

the waterfall is beautiful

Love the park

Great place for walking around, kids have fun

Loved it.

Awesome!

Right in downtown. Very easy. Nice park. All city highlights surround it: civil rights museum, Coca Cola museum, aquarium, etc

Decent, quick loop with average elevation change. Went solo, but would be better if you wanted to do a little picnic or something with folks as there are a couple nice fields.

good distance ...beautiful trail ...an actual nature trail & not concrete walking path.
will do this one again.

No one else on trail when I went in late fall. Looked like it was a summer destination with all the swimming holes. Nice hike a little bit of grade change.

For being so close to the city, it still feels fairly remote. The view at Poppy’s point is great (plus a nice rest stop) on your way to the bamboo forest at the end/turnaround.

Nice views and Nice hikes. All the trails are easy. Some go in the woods some go by the river. Take my dog each time and she loves it.

Great trail but is tricky in some spots where the trail looks like it eroded away .

This park is close to my office. I was able to go on a quick 2 mile hike in just under an hour. Most of the trail that I followed was pretty easy except between WP4 & WP5. That’s a killer hill!

Great "get away" in the middle of a busy urban area. Easy trail, pretty lake and nice trail through the trees.

Sweet, quiet walk with cool history

Really enjoyable trail. Great views.

Not psyched about spending half the hike under high tension powerlines and listening to them hum. Open grate steps that my dog doesn’t love, boardwalks in rough shape, and super muddy after the rain with random pavers to hop on, but not enough. The suspension bridge is really cool, though. And the dog beach seems interesting, although I’m not a fan of off-leash dogs in general.
