Great trail for running and hiking and cooling off in the river at the whitewater entrance. Weekdays are less crowed than weekends. Lots of vert for this area.

Great trail running. A few good scrambles. Long gravel straightaways are a nice rest. Relied on AllTrails highlighted map, as trail trees are not marked, which does make it challenging to get totally in the zone for a run or a hike with so many trail alternatives and forks.

Trail is reserved for university students and staff. We couldn’t even get in.

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

The driving directions take you to the culdesac, it’s the park on the right before that.

Recommend starting at 4432 Whitewater Creek Rd NW parking area and then hike all the way to last marker at the end of trail along the river. You will follow the river and get a great elevation change up to an observation deck between markers EP-10 and EP-14. If you continue on to last marker EP-26 you will reach the bamboo forest which is super cool. You don’t need any tips on how to know when you will reach the bamboo- it will jump out at you ! If you are looking to make a big loop back to where you started - remember the road to Indian Trail parking area is not marked as a trail. The trail looks like it just stops but you can make a nice loop following a wide trail back to Whitewater creek parking lot if walk on the dirt road for a short time.

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.

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

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.

I actually run this trail, which is to say at my level of conditioning at this point, I run and walk it. Our dog Ridley who is still a puppy at 10 months comes with us and does really well with both the terrain and the other people and dogs on the trail. The trail is not at all like running roads which is precisely why I prefer it. The entire area is well visited but you wouldn't know it because it's so spread out. The elevation changes are perfect for training when you live an hour or so south of the mountains. Running/hiking through this hardwood forest over hill and dale causes your mind to forget you live in a metro area of 5+ million people. Treadmills do not duplicate what this trail does for me physically and spiritually. Plus, it's close to home. We'll be signing up for a trail conservation day sometime soon for sure.

Took my sons (ages 4&7) the day after a heavy rain. Trail was just muddy enough to be fun. We found a nice place to play in the water. Other hikers were friendly. I only wish people would remember to keep their dogs on a leash and pick up their dog poop!

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.
