Nice easy hike with the family

Took my 3 kids. (8,8, and 10) We went up on the mounds and down by the river. had an amazing time. Lots of history.

Great UPHILL trail. Parking area is really “sketchy” tons of trash and crowded. But that was expected as it is so close to I75.

Fun little hike! Not too much foot traffic. Well marked and maintained and a great view up top. If you do it in the warm months, bring a couple bottles of water. Excellent little afternoon hike.

Beautiful view! Flying ants were the only issue we had.

Got attacked by a swarm of termites at the overlook. Might give it a couple weeks before going up there..!

Great trail! Definitely make sure you have proper hiking or trail running shoes for the mountain. Elevation change can really wear someone out who is not use to a lot of cardio in a matter of minutes. Some big steps on rocks, but nothing too strenuous. Definitely a busy trail in the morning and moderate throughout the day. The view at the end is worth the experience! Will definitely be back again!

Awesome hike from the east loop. Just the right amount of steep. Great views from the top. All my kids walked the whole way: age 9, 6, 4, and a baby in my pack.

Great hike, more challenging than other trails in the area with beautiful scenery and some steep climbs. Not meant for young children.

Pretty good hike if you consider convenience of from close proximity to the city as well. Started on the west loop approach trail, and took a right at the junction between the loop and the approach trail. Be weary that on the way back you if you decide to do the other side of the west loop, that side is quite rocky.

Started backwards but was a great hike

3 stars in the summer but I’d probably give it 4 in the fall since you’d have better views of the lake/dam. LOTS of up/downs but well maintained.

Definitely moderate difficultly, but still great for our 10 & 14 year olds. Great rock formations and amazing Chestnut Oaks. Great view from the top.

Great trail. I completed this trail with my three children and carrying my youngest in my carrier. Trail was a little uphill at first and rocky in places but the kids loved it. It was less crowded than the West Loop. There was a nice creek about 2 miles in that my kids loved. We can’t wait to go back.

This place is amazing and beautiful. My wife, Children, and myself had a great time here. We walked the loop, walked the river trail, and walked around and up the mounds. Definitely recommend checking this place out.

Short hike up at only a little over a mile to the summit. Great views. Keep your eyes on the trail as this 3ft copperhead crosses right in front of us.

This was a great hike we went backwards to start so it was really uphill but the outlook was definitely worth it would absolutely do again!

Beautiful trails!

I’ve been before but took my family today. It was easy enough for my 5 year old daughter, but she did end up being carried piggy back on the way down. Keep in mind: there is two different trail heads on either side of the mountain. We ended up taking the RED trail on one side. My Fitbit tracked it as 3.9 miles Beautiful view at the top.

Great trails just the markers where confusing to me and my friends. We got lucky a local was there to save us. Ended up walking around the whole mountain. Make sure you bring tons of water with you!!

Nice trail buy lots of rocks and stumps. I would say this is more than a moderate trail.

Relaxing sunny, Sunday morning taking in an easy stroll and history. Worth a visit even if the museum is closed due to Covid-19. Bathrooms were open.

It is a walk ,not a hike. People are giving it a such an unfair review. It is a walk next to the river and yes ,there is benches and sidewalks to the river, if you like to see upclose. It is what is says it is. Good for joggers and walkers. Not for the hiker. I love it! People love to complain!

This trail is open! Short but a good work out. The overlook was nice but super crowded today. Probably doesn't help that most of the trails in GA are still closed. There was plenty of parking and a port-a-john available. Trail blazes start after you get to the bridge. Follow the blue blazes (trail to the left of marker 0.0 mi) for one option to get to the overlook or the red blazes (to the right of 0.0 mile marker).

One of my favorite trails ! It’s both challenging and easy. Plenty of shade with some sun coming through in some places - just the right amount. Arrive early if you want to enjoy some alone time at the overlook.

Very nice and easy trail. Shaded for the most part. I didn't see a lot of people on the trail though the park was crowded according to the park rangers and they had to close some parking areas. Very beautiful nature. Proximity to water makes it very enjoyable even on a warm day of late spring.

Had some trouble figuring out where to start our hike but once we got moving it was really nice. Easy, with some very nice views. Well maintained trail. They will require $5 unless you have the GA state parking pass.

Great trail. Didn’t see many people, very well marked, and a nice view at the top.
