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.

Loved it.


This is a great segment of the Silver Comet trail we rode from mile marker 0 in Smyrna to Pumpkinvine trestle on the other side of Rambo. The trail starts out very crowded then thins out at Power Springs park asphalt or concrete all the way about 6' wide a few road crossings but most have singles for safe crossing. Grade is very low I would rate moderate just of the milage nothing steep in this section. Trail is open for all types of activities bikes,skates,blades,boards,running ETC. Benches along the way to rest or just take in the surroundings. Will be back to do the rest of it. It would be nice if there was a shuttle service and if there is please post it here thanks.

For being so close to the city, it still feels fairly remote. The view at Poppy’s point is great (plus a nice rest stop) on your way to the bamboo forest at the end/turnaround.

Nice views and Nice hikes. All the trails are easy. Some go in the woods some go by the river. Take my dog each time and she loves it.

Great trail but is tricky in some spots where the trail looks like it eroded away .

Really enjoyable trail. Great views.

This was an urban hike through Freedom Park on the PATH trail, by the edge of Candler Park, over Lullwater Creek, and then through Olmstead’s linear parks: Shadyside, Oak Grove, Dellwood, and Virgilee. Hikers without dogs could detour into Fernbank or the Frazer Center’s Cator Woolford Gardens at the turn-around point (around the 2 mile mark).

Refreshing little walk in the city. More sidewalks then surrounding areas. Lots of nice redevelopment to give one remodel ideas.

Kids and dog enjoyed... a couple of small climbs... nice walks along the hooch... none of the hikes along the river are difficult, this one is a nice loop

Super sparsely used but so pretty! Really hilly, would be great for a run! Saw literally no humans once we left South Bend.

Great! Love it! So much to look at while running/walking/biking whatever!

Absolutely beautiful trails, I kept commenting on how pretty the view was every few feet! We were also able to let our dog go swimming after at the beach with a bunch of other dogs. We will definitely be going back to try the kayaking!

Beautiful in early November with brilliant tree color. I saw a deer family 15 feet off the trail. Well marked trails but have to pay attention in a few places with all the leaves covering path. Just a few uphills but worth it. Highly recommend.

Fave local trail!

Went this past weekend with family. Great hike! Loved being able to get down to the water and let the dogs play. Great overlook as well.

Nice trails, great overlook and some side trails provide lots of opportunities to be alone in the middle of Atlanta.

Loved it! Definitely will be back with the family!! Absolutely will get rafts and float down the river next time!! Can’t wait will be back soon!

It was worth finding the bamboo forest. Everyone let their dogs off leash at the river but the ranger did come around and tell them to put them back on. Great place for dogs, though!

Great hike and beautiful scenery.

Lots of fun things to see and do downtown.

loved this trail! so many great places to take pictures! rocky at first but then a clear sidewalk path about 1.5 miles in. visited Ponce City market!

well kept secret. beautiful bike inside perimeter

Beautiful hike to an amazing overlook!

Nice place to walk the dog. Insanely busy on summer holidays. Best to go during the week. Places to wade in the water - fun for cooling off and playing with the dog.
