Great trail for hiking. Never biked on it but I’m sure it would be good for that as well.

Nice and educational walking trail around civil war earth works.

Enjoyed the trail. Very rich in history. The entrance fee is minimal.

With Jimmy- we never could find the actual Trail even though the map said we intersected it several times. Boo!

Actually there are 3 loops that connect for a total of 7.1 miles (Pine Ping, Booger & Rocks of Doom). Lots of rocks and roots. A good cardiovascular workout with many technical areas.

A good quick cardio walk.

It's 1.5 miles and called "Pine Pong Trail." Lots of lizards & an easy hike. Wouldn't come again though.

This trail sucks. It's as simple as that.

I really do love this trail, but it is so poorly marked. I walked it before I ran it because there are so many different directions you can take.

We made numerous attempts to hike this Trail. however between work and life we were never able to catch this spot open. I was not aware that nature could close, however this Trail is only open Thursday, Friday, and Saturday from the hours of 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Every other spot I've encountered is open daylight to dark. Also, there is a $5.50 fee per person just to hike the trail. Good thing I only wasted time driving to this site once, but I definitely won't be doing it again! Just one more thing that makes me loath Paulding county. I'll stick to trails in Cartersville thanks!!!

The trails really need to be marked better but it was nice. I took my dog & he liked it!

Awesome family trail

The trail itself is alright, talk to the ranger and get permission to hike , the creek and actually see where the waterfalls of blood from the civil war battle happened

Love this trail.
Historic and beautiful.
Saw a family of deer along the creek.

Wooded walk, not a lot of incline. Quite easy but close to a new housing development.

I want to start by saying that the system of walking clockwise some days and counter clockwise on other days is strange and confusing. With that being said, my mother and I started on the "blue" trail that is on the right side of the parking lot because we honestly did know where we were supposed to begin. The first half of the trail was nice and it was smooth sailing, but then we get to a spot where you can go left, straight, or right and there aren't any markers to tell you which way you should go and that is when the chaotic trails started. If you go to the right it will take you across a bridge and eventually lead to a " No Trespassing" sign. If you go straight from the three way spot it will take you to another left or right trail. The trail to the right leads you to marker 11 of the green trail and the left will take you back towards the beginning. So it basically comes down to the trails starting off nice, but then half way through it turns into crisscrossing trails, dead ends, and "shortcuts" that people have made in order to find their way back to their car. If they had the trails marked more clearly and a map at the information board explaining the three different trails that we cross through I would have given it a better rating. I honestly don't have any desire to hike this trail again.

It was a nice light hike. Weather was perfect and most of the hike was super quiet.

Makes for a nice afternoon!

Well done interpretive trail. Pretty hilly.

Great trail for walking or hiking. It's not very strenuous and there aren't any major inclines. The trail twists and turns a lot and there are lots of roots and rocks in places. The trail will take you along creeks, through a couple of pine groves, and through hardwoods. The trail markings leave a lot to be desired and can be confusing. Stay on the beaten path and you'll never be far from civilization.

Lovely trails. Good hike. My only issue is that they charge you $5 entrance fee even though I had my GA State Park decal. They see themselves as a historic site, which they are, and that warrants the charging of the fee. The trails hike around the Pickett's Mill Battle Field. They do not have very good maps for the trails either.

Very nice trail. Very private - we only saw a couple of people on the 3 mile loop.

Nice trail, however there was a fee to enter. You received a numbered map that had points of interest along the way. Nice creek side views and varying elevations, but not too difficult. We took my 7 year old little cousin who had very little complaints and only asked to be piggy backed twice:)

Very fun trail I used to ride back in Georgia. Super tight, with a few climbs and even a few sections that are pretty fast. I miss them

Really nice trail system. Has a Cabin on one of the loops (white), various fields on other loops. Well marked trails. You can get a trail map at the visitor center for no additional cost that gives you points of interest. There are markers along the route that show you which direction to look, and what section to read on the trail map. Lots of interesting information that shows you what you are looking at and what happened where. Great fun!

Went here as a kid with my family so I don't remember much about it.

Fun direction trail, plenty of alternate loops with a few climbs. something for everybody

Closed Sun-Wed. Would have been nice to know before making the trip!

Went on the blue loop. Not a bad quick hike but a little frustrating that they dont have historian markers explaining points of interest along the way.
