Not a fan of this trail. Wasn’t much to trail blaze with my kids. A bit boring. The East Palisades trail is much better.

Definitely pay attention to the trail signs and bring your owns gps. The hike is harder near the northwest portion of the trail-narrow trail and slanted due to the terrain. The southern portion is easier with good views.

Nice trail, not super easy with some minor up and down sections with a lot of tree roots.

Nice trail. Part goes through a parking lot but otherwise a good variety of hills and flat stretches and the views of the Chattahoochee are good but not spectacular.

Nice trail in the city but a lot of street noise and by buildings most of the time. Great to get out and enjoy some inner city hiking if you just wasn’t to stretch your legs.

Maybe it's just me, but it's pretty easy to get somewhat lost. I ended up appearing in a neighborhood next to someone's backyard...

Great hike yet so close to the city. However, beware that 98% of people with dogs DO NOT keep them on leashes, which is extremely frustrating for those of us following the rules. Leashes are for the safety of the dog. Wish others understood that.

I love walking this trail so close to my house and in the city. But I walked this trail on 1/1/19 and the last really bad rain washed the wooden boardwalk so bad that it was not walkable. Peachtree creek floods really bad with all the runoff in Atlanta. It’s sad that there is such a horrible watershed issue in this area of Atlanta. But this trail brings the emergency Atlanta faces with runoff literally home.

great walk with my son who is 5

This is a great trail for mountain biking. I'm not sure why alltrails classifies it as easy. it is a good challenging ride. there's a lot of incline, and roots and rocks to navigate around. I usually incorporate this and the flat trail down by the river and do two laps around the entire thing. it's a nice ride. very good workout.

Great hike with some good views that is also ITP! Also a good trail for dogs. Only complaint is that it can be very busy depending on when you go.

Amazing trail with amazing views. Moderate hike.

Our hotel was a short walk to Centennial Olympic Park and all the other major downtown Atlanta attractions. After visiting the Georgia Aquarium our family of 4 decided to take a stroll through the park on the way back to the hotel. Even though is was a cold, rainy December day, we appreciated much the park had to offer. Seeing the Olympic torches and memorable statues was the highlight, along with the cascading rock formations and water pools along one side of the park. My only complaint is that overall, the park felt very empty, as we wished there was more to see on the inside. Overall, I would still say this is a must visit if you travel to Atlanta.

Very cool, unique place to check out in Atlanta. Lot's of history and a cool hidden viewpoint of the city scape.

Great views of the Chatahoochee, nice easy walk through the woods. Trails well marked though we managed to go for an extra unplanned loop anyway... led to another great view though.

Hidden gem in a humdrum city life.

Even if the trail is easy to moderate and not much of a challenge, you get to stop and enjoy many wonderful views throughout the trail.

Very informative history tour around the town where Martin Luther King was born and raised.

Absolutely beautiful trail

you can get lost and explore a bit more if you go off trail

really muddy and beach is littered with trash. I always give my dog a bath afterwards when I let him play in the smelly river of city runoff.

An intown gem.

Hike and bike trail. Mainly in forest. Limited view of the river. Wide trails.

We loved this trail, but found it to be poorly marked where you go up the hill. We weren’t sure exactly the right way to go and doubled back the way we came.

A challenging ride...couldn’t figure out how it could be up hill the whole trail. Just kidding, it’s a great trail pretty narrow. Not for the beginner. Can’t wait to ride it again.

Definitely worth the hike! The bamboo forest was the best reward at the end!

I rate it as a fast hiker expecting hilly trails. I usually go 2.5 mph on trails, I did this one at 3.5 mph so it is easy.
This one can be split into 2, the north trails and south trails.
The north is not really interesting, plus the vicinity of the 400 does make it noisy, so I will advise not taking it If you seek peace.
The south is more interesting, with spots for pictures and deers crossings (I saw 7 this Sunday).
Still it must be considered as an easy trait, not a moderate one.

Super fun getaway from the city! We’re still searching for the bamboo forest.

Great woodland trail in the middle of suburbia. Recommend that you check out the trail map posted at the kiosk.
