Great in the AM before the humidity kicks in during summer. Very quiet, no cars heard. Lovely oasis in midtown.

Piedmont park is a great park, but this path should be updated if it’s gonna be dog friendly. You can’t walk dogs up on the track which is a 1/3 of this path. Other than that great time.

Great place to run your dog

love the park. its WAS so beautiful. But now way to many Electric vehicles when it comes to scooters, bikes and so on.

You can’t even do the trail map listed here because half the park is closed due to construction. Tried to walk around and possibly jump back on, but literally half the park and trails are cut off from public access.

Great trail. The Cochran Shoals Trail is much more elevation and it’s easy to backtrack. The trail is blazed. I went in trying to do 6 miles and came back to my starting point at 2.4 miles. Note:!’I get lost easily.

This is an ok inter city trail. Most of it is paved but the paved section does have some steep climbs and you will get a workout from it. I am more of a trail hiker so I appreciate the fact that there are a couple of off-pavement trails to check out along the route. I hadn't walked this trail in a long time so it was a nice revisit next to the river.

The trail, or trials if you take some of the other ones off the main trail, had everything (but also a ton of poison ivy so be mindful). Water features, a suspension bridge, rock crossing over water, pipe crossing(!) over water, nice wide paths and some very narrow overgrown ones. Loved the variety. Did about 3.5 miles total.

This is a great trail and is usually well maintained. There was a bad storm that went through last week and there are a bunch of trees down currently blocking the path. You can maneuver around them. I know some people like to jog this trail so you may want to wait until it gets cleaned up.

Pretty easy trail, it is paved the whole way but definitely worth it. Love how it highlights how close nature is in the metro-Atlanta area.

Very nice walk with tons of things to see!

This isn’t my favorite trail at all. It’s REALLY easy to get off the trail because it can lead to a bunch of different trails (including a 40 mile trail). We found a guy, sitting by the river, on patio furniture he said was his. I have no idea how he got there. Trail seems a lot shorter than 8 miles and is really close to the highway. At some points we couldn’t hear each other speak because of the roar. The only waterfall is a little water trickle that wasn’t pleasing. Some sort of large sinkhole under the highway bridge was kinda fun to go look at, but all in all there are yellowjackets, mud, dog poop, trash and no views other than the highway there. I wouldn’t recommend it unless it’s the only thing close enough to hike.

The park maps divide this trail into a north and south section, And the South section is far more scenic. The north portion isn't as well traveled, and has quite a bit of road noise. The southern trails offer many places for you to stop along the river. I was stung by a couple of flying, buzzing things, and so was another guy out there on the same trail before us. He said they were yellow jackets, but I can't confirm that. Regardless, a nice, easy shaded stroll. One pretty creek crossing. Restrooms, a water bottle filling station, and plenty of parking at the lodge/visitor center.

I was not sure what to expect as this is nestled amongst car dealerships and government buildings, but I was pleasantly surprised! The trails were well marked and maintained. For an early Sunday morning I didn't see too many people and only one ignorant dog owner with an unleashed, unruly dog. I'm ok with an unleashed dog but at least have the decency to train it so it doesn't get lost. There are several different short trails, but I ended up doing the back trail a few times and got some good mileage in. Some of the off trails lead to apartment complexes to don't bother. I'd come back here probably.

really nice trail and so close to the city. river views, cool rocks, overlooks, and a bamboo forest make this a neat hike.

very easy for biking, walking and running.

Not entirely their fault but there were several children's camps going on when I went to visit. What a nightmare. Paper, plastic, even clothing strewn about. Not to mention all the construction going on around. You can imagine my surprise when I saw a deer by the playground area. That didn't last long as there is an outdoor piano that 10 different toddlers were simultaneously playing. Won't be back here. Trails were disappointing, most end up in people's backyards.

Walked the trail from 7:00 am to 8:30 on a Sunday. It was nice and peaceful. I felt safe. Most of it is open. Minimal hills. Probably wouldn’t go later in the day because of the road traffic. Seems like it would get a bit noisy.
