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.

This was an urban hike through Freedom Park on the PATH trail, by the edge of Candler Park, over Lullwater Creek, and then through Olmstead’s linear parks: Shadyside, Oak Grove, Dellwood, and Virgilee. Hikers without dogs could detour into Fernbank or the Frazer Center’s Cator Woolford Gardens at the turn-around point (around the 2 mile mark).

Kids and dog enjoyed... a couple of small climbs... nice walks along the hooch... none of the hikes along the river are difficult, this one is a nice loop

It stunk! Like something was rotting

We like to walk here as a family as it is quite close to home and don’t need to drive. The dog loves it as well. Small trail network but can include it in longer runs in the neighborhood as not technical but gets the heart pumping on a nice small climb

Good for older adults as seating is available .

Pretty fun, didn’t find the waterfall, but overall a cool trail with lots of neat rocks!

Super sparsely used but so pretty! Really hilly, would be great for a run! Saw literally no humans once we left South Bend.

Great! Love it! So much to look at while running/walking/biking whatever!

Absolutely beautiful trails, I kept commenting on how pretty the view was every few feet! We were also able to let our dog go swimming after at the beach with a bunch of other dogs. We will definitely be going back to try the kayaking!

nice hike by river, but a little noisy with GA 400 nearby

Beautiful in early November with brilliant tree color. I saw a deer family 15 feet off the trail. Well marked trails but have to pay attention in a few places with all the leaves covering path. Just a few uphills but worth it. Highly recommend.

Overgrown with invasive species. Nice area for dog owners, but I much prefer other trails around Atlanta for hiking or trail running.
