A great trail run! Pretty flat, beware with large groups, this is a mountain biking path first!

No dogs allowed...

Great family hike! Amazing view from the top.

Fun trail, dogs on a leash but some people don’t follow that rule.

there are no hiking trails here. This is however a very lovely place to swim in the river or have a picnic. There are plenty of picnic benches and paved trails to them

A decent hike that has a gradual increase in elevation. We are late 30's and early 40's. Wear your hiking boots as the rocks are plenty and so are the tree roots. You would be fine in sneakers but boots will really protect your ankles if you step wrong and your toes when you hit a root or rock. There were people of all ages on the trail from 2 years old to 75. We did the Indian Seats Trail and on the way down took the Yucca portion which connects to the Indian Seats. All told we did 4.3 miles in just about 2 hours at a steady pace and a 15 minute stop at the top. We did this hike on June 23rd at 9:00 AM. There was plenty of tree cover from the sun the entire way and a very nice breeze at the top. I would suggest doing this as soon as the park opens in the summer time because it will get quite hot. Great start to the day.

Fun trail to run. The direction alternates every other day and is fun either way. Looking forward to hitting it on a Mtn. bike soon, too. Oh and my dog loves it. Under canopy so not too hot and the lake is right there to cool off in afterwards.

well maintained and not too crowded if you go at the right time. Beautiful overlook

Great hike with lots of up/down winding, well-blazed trails... clearly marked which direction is biking & which direction is hiking. We went on a Saturday so lots of bikes to contend with. The gnats were not my favorite but beautiful views of the lake and secret alcoves with picnic spots and benches. There is plenty of parking and bathrooms available at trailhead. No parking fees required!

Nice little North Atlanta hike. The trail is well-maintained and the views are great from the top. Indian Seats are cool. Not too crowded but we started early.

An awesome trail just minutes outside of Cumming.

Enjoyed this..beginning hiker..views at the observation deck were great. Not a lot of people on the trail.

Great trail system. well marked. Lots of wildlife.

The best quick hike for the view there is.

This was a fun trail. Not super crowded. Not too difficult. Well worth the view.

beautiful views

Fair hike for a great view. Well worth it!

It’s great for trail running. Challenging ups and downs and the signs clearly mark where you are. There are short inner loop and longer outer loop options.

There is no trail here. Someone just recorded their walk around the campground. The campground is for campers only. The campground is great for camping though.

It’s not really a hike but it is a nice place for a picnic and to splash around in the water. There is a picnic shelter, restrooms, and a playground.

Easy and great for kids. A little crowded. View are nice, but overlooking a road and chicken farm:(

I have used this trail to trail run. it offers a fairly good challenge, with a good cross section of extended ups and extended downs and periods of flats. good workout. watch out for sections of exposed roots.

Local favorite. Great workout with rewarding views!

Other reviewers are right. It's not a "hike" at all. But it is a lovely little park with two playgrounds, a historic covered bridge, and a lovely river front scene perfect for midday relaxing, meditation, yoga, and maybe some splashing in warmer months.
It's likely to be packed in warm weather and evenings after school so keep that in mind if you're looking for quiet.

Excellent trail! View at the top of the mountain is beautiful! Easy for all ages. And will definitely get your heart rate up.

Nice super easy hike!

Love this place, easy trail and an amazing view if you make it all the way to the top!

Definitely beautiful views if you have good visibility that day. Free parking with lots of available spots. Lots of room when you get to the top. Not a hard trail at all, I would classify this as easy instead of moderate. This would be a great running trail.
