This is the third time doing this trail. It’s a great trail with water views. Came across several people biking it.

Beautiful stone stairs to the tower. Tower was closed but still amazing the platform overlook was probably the best view I’ve ever scene. Love this trail and Park.

The hike was fantastic with nice views in a few places. The trail was a bit overgrown but was very well marked.

i did this trail 9-20-17 and i remember it like it was yesterday. what a beautiful sunny day and since school was back in. it was almost like it was abandon. i felt like i was exploring forgotten lands. the calm and peace surrounding you was an amazing feeling. the park and day was simply awesome.

Great trail and well blazed. Seen 3 bears about mid way through the hike. The views would be even better in the fall.

mostly easy but with some sections of moderate climbs and descents. great views from the overlook. the tower was locked when we got there.

Great trail.

Great hike! A bit overgrown in places but is well marked (orange). Nice and shady, cooler temps in lower laying parts of the trail, and lots of variety of plants/little creatures. I’d call this a moderate hike for those that are seasoned. Added the West Overlook and Fort Mountain fire tower to the adventure rounding the length to about 10.5 miles. A great 5 hrs spent. Highly suggest parking at the Cool Springs overlook for before and after sights. Enjoy!

Plenty of shade & well manicured. Easy trail walked it to wind down after my day of hiking in a pair of flip-flops. Met a nice couple at car camping/RV park. Diverse wildlife, tons of fish wish I brought my pole.

The greatest trail I’ve ever ridden from a pure FUN perspective. Rolling hills and very few actual climbs. My 6 year old son bikes the entire trail with some occasional areas where we would walk bikes. About 2 miles in, we walked spies to a small beach where we swam in the beautiful lake.

absolutely love this trail. it is well marked for the entire length via an orange blaze. the grade is moderate to different, with some flatter sections sprinkled in! the trail changes in scenery often, showing you a variety of different environments. however! be careful! I have seen multiple black bears on this route before! be safe out there

Beautiful trail with great views and lots of wildlife. I definitely wouldn't consider this an "easy" trail for many beginners. Children or inexperienced hikers may tire by the end of this loop.

Nice easy trail around the Lake. Could be good for biking as it is mostly flat. Good for dogs!

Nice trail, mostly easy, some moderate areas. The overlook is awesome, great views! Good trail for dogs but they can’t to into the tower.

Nice short hike to a small waterfall. Great for families or dogs. If you go to the park, definitely make this trail a stop.

Great little hike. Short half mile loop that is very pleasant. Beautiful little cascading rock creek with several little pools of small fish. Saw a wild turkey. Would definitely recommend this little stroll.

Did this trail with husband and 2 small dogs on July 4th. Total hiking time was just a tad over 4 hours. Trail is very well marked with orange blazes. We saw a bear about 7 miles in, and had to wait 20 minutes for him to scoot down into the forest. There are basically no views until the very end, I’m sure it is a much different hike in late Fall or Winter. The trail is also very narrow and overgrown in a lot of sections. And found a bunch of ticks on dogs when we got home and bathed them. One more tidbit, we started out about 10 am and had entire trail to ourselves...with exception of that bear

Nice easy trail. Beautiful lake views.

Great hike with lots of diversity. The 8 miles is misleading. Like another review here it was really 11 miles and took my son and I 5 hours. Maybe there’s an inner trail which is 8 miles? Not for beginners but a wonderful trail to conquer.

Fairly easy hike with great views of the lake for most of the hike. Total was 5 miles with the additional ½ mile detour to check the primitive campgrounds on the peninsula out. There were two primitive restrooms near the campground and one at the beginning of the trail. Saw a king snake, several squirrels, and birds. There was one older couple and a man with his dog that we encountered during the hike.

Love but way too many people, for a Monday. Also I'd say easy not moderate.

This trail was definitely not the best for a beginner (me), but it was absolutely beautiful. Great scenic overlooks, changes in terrain and scenery, a couple creek crossings, and wildlife. My dog did very well on this trail and seemed to enjoy herself, but she had well over 50 ticks despite tick prevention. Only saw three people outside of my group the entire time. We did come across a black bear but our group got close, talked loudly, and kept going, and we didn’t have any trouble. Park staff is very nice and helpful. If you are a beginner and stop a lot for scenery and snacks, do NOT plan to do this in four hours. Start earlier in the day. We started at around 2 pm expecting to be back by 7 pm, but we were out past 9 pm in the dark. We had walked to the trail from camp, so this also added time. My phone clocked in over 11 miles.

Breathtaking! You don’t even have to walk far!

This is my new favorite place to go! The view will take your breath away. The only place that is worth it to hike to is the overlook. The trail back is absolutely beautiful.

The Gahuti is a great trail for a day hike! I arrived at 0800 and completed it by noon. I stopped at several of the overlooks and creek crossings. The trail is maintained well. The only thing that could have made it better would be the time of year that I chose to do it. When the leaves are off the views would be much better. I would recommend this trail to anyone that is looking for a great day hike within an hour and a half from metro Atlanta.

This is a great loop trail that is scenic, but not overly taxing. It’s a joy to walk on, as it is soft rather than rocky. Great for a quick get-away, or for a group with a wide range of capabilities.

Nice relatively flat lake hike, suitable for hikers of all ages. At the southern most point on the trail we took the intersecting jeep trail further south to tip of the peninsular. This short addition adds.6 of mile both ways. Along the way are a couple port-a-potties, trashcans and several picnic tables with flat designated tent camp sites. However this last .6 miles is not flat. Just be prepared for a short steep climb out and back. Once you get back to the original it flat hiking back to the trail head.
