such a great trail to get a good quick workout in. this place will always be dear to my heart as I used to live just 5 minutes from here. the hills are good ones and in the summer, my dog used to get in the creek and cool off. so many great places for photos too.

A wonderful hiking trail.Loved the overlook !!

Skip this trail if you want to go hiking in the woods. The only walking trails are really paved beside the river. Once you’re in the woods, it’s a constant barrage of mountain bikes speeding toward you and then getting upset if you don’t see them in time.

A solid neighborhood park to get a nice walk in during the week! Loop twice = about 3 miles? The ladies room is always clean too, so added perk!

Nice place and quick stop off interstate to explore. The sounds birds chirping, sound of water rushing down the rocks, butterflies everywhere so relaxing after Atlanta traffic! Seen people doing yoga by the cascades. Very cool!!

This trail is perfect for a first hike, or to warm up for longer hikes. I did this trail while it was raining pretty heavily, and it was still very enjoyable. The hike is fairly easy throughout, but there are some spots can be treacherous, especially if you want to get closer to some of the waterfalls along the way to the end. The final waterfall at the end is truly amazing and much bigger than pictures make it seem. I hiked with a group that ranged from first-timers to seasoned veterans and everyone enjoyed the trail.

Very nice hike. You stay along the lake most of the hike.

Took the kids and dogs last weekend. Great trail. Will definitely be going back.

I take the dogs here a lot and we hike/walk the road. Havent been past the concrete bridge by the small falls, but it's a lovely walk. Very pretty and easy. We usually park in the lot by the main falls and swimming area. I haven't come across an actual trail, just the road and a few defunct service roads. Bring water, trail snacks, and definitely a camera. The wildlife is spectacular.

I absolutely LOVE this place!! From the trail to the waterfall, it's very beautiful. I love getting in the water and absorbing everything around. It's an amazing place, no matter the season!

Nice and very scenic. Loved this park! Will be back soon!

This is a nice urban trail with lots of traffic. I walked out on it and then went inland a few blocks to return through the historic district which had a wonderful diversity of old homes, including Victorian, Craftsman and Art Deco.

Great trail and if you have dogs there is a dog park right by the parking.

Beautiful easy hike, even with a bad ankle. Get there early as it tends to get a bit crowded with people & dogs. Trail runs along the stream, more than 1 pretty waterfall. Will definitely be back! No cell phone coverage, which kind of makes it even better!

Well maintained trail. My only complaint is that the “Take Outs” along the trail are reserved for emergency vehicles only. There are no short cuts for hikers as the paved road in the middle is locked at the entrance.

Spent Saturday afternoon in early March on the trail with my Golden Retriever. Nice view of the river through out. Less traffic gets little challenging in the 2nd half. Overall a fantastic way to spend your afternoon

Great, easy to follow trail. Water falls in multiple spots and lots of beautiful views and plants. The last leg to get to the waterfall between the cliffs is a little shaky but worth it!
Beware though, this trails gets BUSY, due to how gradual the climb and rewarding the end.

Hike 1/24/17 - Beautiful hike and easy enough for our 4 year old.. We will definitely Hike this trail again..

Beautiful trail

Our GPS said 6.6 miles, not 5.8, There were two places where the river/swamp covered the trail and we had to try and walk around. Deep enough that if you don't have waterproof boots your feet will get wet. As another reviewer wrote, we heard lots of gunshots on the purple trail. Be careful transitioning from the Perimeter Trail (orange) to the Broad River Trail (purple). The park map does not show it accurately. We walked right past it until we consulted the AllTrails map, which is accurate. Enough ups and downs to get a good workout.

We followed the Yellow trail markings which is not exactly The Fort Yargo Lake Loop on AllTrails, but it's close; following the Yellow trail cuts off a small portion next to the lake. Our GPS said 6.2 miles. Easy trail, very well marked, not terribly crowded particularly on the opposite side of the lake. Very minor ups and downs. Pretty.

easy hiking. great scenery. i can imagine this trail getting congested so maybe best to plan around peek times

Easy hike with lots of trail options. Dog and kid friendly.

Pretty scenery, nice area, and some good trails, but it is very poorly marked. It is difficult to navigate and stay on the correct trail and there are numerous small branches that make navigation even harder. The trail doesn't exist and is overgrown in some places and the dearth of signs make it very hard to stay on track. If they can make it more clear where you're supposed to go this would be a fine trail.

This trail is really beautiful, definitely my new favorite spot in the low country. I would LOVE to see a clean up effort because there is quite a bit of debris and trash that is littering the shore line. Better trail markers would be helpful but overall, this trail is a treasure.

Awesome, fun trail with gorgeous scenery!! The creek going along the trail makes for some really peaceful hiking. Definitely a must!!
