Nice shaded path for running. Very busy on the weekends, but the trails are wide enough for everyone. Off the wide main paths, there are smaller trails for biking and people who want a more strenuous hike.

Parking is limited.

Not the most scenic hike, but a good one nonetheless. Well marked trail, lots of parking, and occasional views of the river. Hard to believe it is right next to 400 because there is very little traffic noise, even during rush hour.

Nice trail. More easy than moderate. Would bring the grandkids. Let them play in the water.

Walked with a 17 and 8 year old. All three of us loved every step. There are small waterfalls and the path is well maintained. In fact volunteers and rangers were out working on the trail. The museum is also a cannot miss.

Very nice hike, there are too many unleashed dogs there. I almost stepped on a 5' snake. I would have given it 5 stars but the unleashed dogs and lack of parking have it a four star rating.

This is a beautiful jewel inside the perimeter that’s a wonderful spot for trail run, hike, walk, or photo shoot.

Great trail for days you want to get outside but take it easy. Beautiful scenery makes you forget that you are in a city.

It was a nice trail. I started at marker 13, got to the lookout tower and decided I wanted to go all the way to the river. If you hike the entire thing like I did-make sure you have plenty of water. Also, yellowjackets during spring are everywhere here and they kinda linger around the maps-so be careful!!

Have been a regular on the beltline since it opened. Love to come here and stroll to different areas to eat, attend events, or meet with friends. Perfect for days when you don't want do any strenuous exercise.

Came here for the Sweep the Hooch event and stayed to walk the trail. Absolutely gorgeous, even on a rainy day. Perfect escape in the middle of the city.

Have come here many times over the years. It is a large, wonderful park that hosts many festivals and concerts. No special reason is needed to visit. Perfect for a sunny afternoon stroll and picnic with lots of trees for the ENO.

Hard to believe this is in the middle of a city. The path is easy to navigate and has enough elevation changes to keep it fun but not overly strenuous.

Easy trail. Pretty views in the beginning but not too much to see after that. Well marked. Keep an eye out for dog poop though.
Overall nice stroll!

Great moderate hike.

LOVE this trail - been using it for many years. Great elevation and sight-seeing. You will forget you’re within city limits. Lightly trafficked during the weekday, mornings and afternoons; moderate after work hours and on weekends.

This is a great escape right in the middle of the city. Only one precaution: the 'dog beach' has broken glass, a lot of it. Be careful walking on it. Otherwise, a quick walk through the woods if you can't drive out of the city!

A plethora of trails some that take you on the banks of the Chattahoochee.

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..

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

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 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
