Nice shaded hike with river and lake views. A lot of fishing spots to boot.

Careful when it rains! It gets slippery. Go early or late for best views/light. The hike gets crowded on the weekends.

Great hike. Beautiful.

This is not the exact route that we backpacked, but I think this could be said of the entire Cumberland Island trail system:

Easy hiking with gorgeous views that range from live oak groves to historic plantations to flawless beaches to stands of conifer. What's not to love? This place served as a perfect early spring backpacking getaway.

Very few people and tons of wildlife including wild horses, dolphins, and a cougar!

There was one hiccup as we were trying to rush to camp before dark one night, and were confronted by a flooded trail closure halfway across the Willow Pond Trail. That made for a dark and stressful hike back. Some signage at the start of the trail would have been appreciated.

Nice trail little muddy good visibility on trail and easy to follow markers, not much for photos to dense over all very enjoyable.

Great hike and what a view

Great hike! Definitely need hiking boots as there was a ton of rocks, roots, etc. But, that’s why we are outside, right? There wasn’t much traffic on the trail. Felt safe as a solo female hiker, but of course i was prepared! The last .5 of the Mountainside Trail will get ya...uphill. Get your head around it. Great workout! Will be back.

nice little trail took my kids and dog beautiful views

best time to climb Stone Mountain is either early in the morning or just before sunset. To see the sun rising or setting and the lights off Atlanta in the distance is awesome.

Hike down and back. Perhaps it's because the area is getting a lot of rain (July 2018) but this may one of the best natural waterfalls in the area and I've been coming here for years.

Beautiful hike along the river that’s nice and secluded. I would recommend you have some agility skills because there are a number of trees down across the trail. After this hike we walked north for several miles on the road along the Tallulah River.... a beautiful hike as well and no trees to climb over.

We saw several types of crabs, lots of birds and clams. Areas of the trail were washed out, but you could walk around the places, I wouldn't suggest a bike though.

Beautiful trail, but going down the right of the entrance are two washouts. The first you can cross, the second has two unstable looking pipes. This was about 1 mile into the trail. August 7th 2018

Beautiful view of lake Lanier and Chattahoochee river. We enjoyed the beach towards the end of our hike.

no dogs allowed....?!

I go every Monday morning it’s a wonderful climb for all ages. The best time to go is around 8:00am that way you aren’t being hit My the suns powerful rays.

Loved this trail. Good workout and quiet in the early morning. Be careful of loose rocks on the trail. Wear appropriate footwear. Lots of fire ants so don't plan to stop for a trail snack.

It was definitely for beginners. The whole trail is on a wooden boardwalk. And its a straight shot out to a tower that you can over look the swamp and then you have to walk back! It’s worth going once, but that’s probably all you’d want to visit, maybe one more time in a different season. The tower is really high and makes you feel dizzy going up haha! Do not bring your dogs since its all boardwalk and no place for them to go potty! Its maybe a mile or 2 total, there and back!

This trail is a short drive from my house in Canton, and this is probably my favorite thing about this trail. There isn’t much in Canton for distance walking. The gravel trail in Boling Park Is a nice 1.3 mile loop. You have to walk all the way to the back of the park where the trail turns to dirt and go along the tree line at the far end to get to Sutallee Trail. The first opening in the trees/bushes, and to the right does loop back to the beginning of the gravel path in Boling Park. This is toward the high school. If you take the bigger opening in the bushes, and go to the left you will be on the big loop.It’s true that it isn’t blazed very well. The last time I went, I took the orange blazed trail and it stopped, as far as I know, because there is a large tree across it. It seems that if you follow the white blazes, it will take you around the loop. The best thing to do is to keep alltrails open and look at it periodically to see if you’re on the trail. I haven’t done the entire loop yet.. What I have done is easy. I’ve been on the trail during the week in the late afternoon, and I encounter trail runners. The trails is very narrow for about the 1st mile and a quarter. Then it splits off into wider trail that appears to be motorized vehicle road. If you walk with headphones I recommend keeping your volume down so you can hear the runners coming. I try to give them the right away. This is a great trail, shady, and it Could be completed after work during EDT.

Love this hike. The view is spectacular and the hazy mountain tops are a treat to the eyes!

Great trails for families. One of my favorite ones.

Awesome view at the end.
Very crowded and hot but much of it is shaded.

Wonderful trail with a great view. Felt safe the entire time. Only saw a few people. Just make sure you follow the signs carefully or you might end up in a different parking lot.

Enjoyed it very much. Quiet and peaceful walking amongst wild horses. Take a swim in the ocean to cool off

Easy hike in the swamp. Saw lots of birds and alligators

Fantastic easy hike. Doing the whole loop gives a decent workout. Shaded. Beautiful view at the observation deck, as well as boulders to climb around.

Quiet on Saturdays afternoon. Safe. Great for beginners. I did the white trail and if you get too tired half way through, there is a shortcut back to the parking lot.

Pretty nice place to walk.

Nice trail- very flat except for a small hill at the very end. Lots of trail runners- with the flatness of the trail I see the appeal for trail running.
