Amazing first half is the easiest but totally worth it.

You can access this trail from main overlook/parking area, top parking area, and 2 of the campsites. Beautiful rock formations to climb on, and views of course!

It was wonderful

Super afternoon day hike with my dog..
Trail are well marked, well maintained and the lake is beautiful in early spring.

Perfect running trail! Shady in summertime and flat! Beautiful little creek runs along it; saw a blue heron here last week. 4 miles between sandy creek nature center and sandy creek park (lake Chapman) so you can get in your 8 mile run easy or even add the 7 mile loop around the lake if you run that far.

Short walk for the smaller one. Will try the others another time.

Beautiful trail. Also I walked the connecting blue and the blue and green trails around the cabins and driving range all while hubby was golfing. Saw several Eastern Bluebirds, an Eastern Towhee, a Bluejay, Chickadee, Robbins a Piliated Woodpecker and another smaller woodie I couldn’t see well enough to ID.

Pretty walk. Lots of stairs for a good workout. The falls was beautiful

A nice, relaxing trail that the whole family, even the canine members, can enjoy. The water scape segment of the trail has interpretative signs that tell about the area’s interesting history and environment. The park is popular with area photographers who use the attractive backgrounds for engagement, wedding, and maternity photos. The trail is also popular for locally sponsored Fun Runs and school cross country meets.

A nice morning hike for the first day of spring!!! A couple other hikers are out this morning as well. Squirrels and chipmunks are all along the trail. In and out by noon. Great trail for a quick day hike!!

This is definitely my favorite leisurely trail. There are a good number of side trails as well that offer more of a challenge. Overall, it’s nearly perfect.

Ask for a map at the park entrance.

Amazing Hike Loved it!!!

Great park and highly recommend coming here. Quite and not a lot of people.

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.

We enjoyed this beautiful place last weekend.

Nice hike. Not sure why they says it’s 5.1 miles. We took the long route and it wasn’t quite four miles. Still a good workout with a nice view of a waterfall.

Great hike and well maintained paths.

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.

Great Trail, super views.

Beautiful hike with lots of options within the system. Long 4+ plus miles to short 1 mile easy loop. Big minus...dog poo. All over the path and in bags. Pickup after yourself.

We wanted to do the entire loop, and web site says dog friendly. However dogs are not allowed on stair down to the gorge. My son and I did the stairs and my Husband has to stay with dog. That was very disappointing. We did do the north and south rim and both were nice walks dog friendly and beautiful views. Would like to do it again without the dog, but not sure I can do stairs again tomorrow. Only giving 4 stars, because info was wrong and not totally dog friendly.

Awesome and so worth the walk up. It is paved, but some areas do have an incline. Our Portuguese water dog did great and we would do it again! Falls are beautiful and so much bigger than we thought!

Definitely not moderate- should be classified as easy. Some slight elevation and pretty smooth. Remember to pay to park- 5usd

Trails were confusing at first. A few unmarked splits but all in all it’s a great little loop. Will be back out there again.

Nice hike with limited views. Road in kinda sucked.

Fun trail. Steep and quick. Starts off easy, but when u hit the steps!!! Get ready. Nice view at the top. Once you get to the amphitheater it’s really it as far as view...trail continues a bit, but eventually turns into a vehicle access road, don’t know where that ends up, would be fun if ur a runner.

Very nice walking trail, well marked and not too many people. Would recommend to anyone looking for a quiet hike in nature.

Great trail! Definitely take the red trail if you want to put in some work. Only passed a few people. Plenty of swimming spots for dogs.
