Nice trail. Didn’t stick to the white trio the whole time. A little crowded but it’s close to the city so you would expect that. Lots of dogs, all on leash and well behaved as well as quiet. Will definitely come back as there are tons of more trails.

awsome place to hike... the ruins and a must see and lots of spots along the river to sit and relax..i took the red trail and was not as hard as they say... do bring water and supplies though as you will need it...great place

Fun trail for kids but really crowded on weekends and holidays. We stuck to the white trail to avoid the crowds.

Went at noon on a Sunday. The Red section was somewhat crowded as expected, but once on the White it thinned out. Nice river views which transitioned to thicker woods and then glades since I went Red to White. Wish that there wasn't that .25 mile or so of gravel road on the White trail, but still enjoyed it.

A good warm up trail for big mountains. You have a variety of surfaces but nothing too crazy al all. A nice warm up.

Recommend this trail for all but as another person noted, I wouldn’t consider an easy trail, more moderate due to the some challenges on the trail. My four year old completed but it took quite a bit of time to do as we had to stop many times with the climbing! Great scenery and lots to view!

Great evening hike with my hiking buddy! Saw lots of squirrels, but no other wildlife. Came in on the backside of the green trail and saw the sign for rattlesnakes!!!! Wondered what that smell was and now I know

easy???? not for running that's for sure. but def worth it.

Fun hike with some good up and downs! Trail ran it and got a great workout in

I think the easy rating for this isn’t quite accurate. I’d say more intermediate unless you’re a regular hiker. Pretty big shifts in elevation.

Beautiful views and shady trails! Be prepared for rocky areas that are somewhat difficult to maneuver around, but the challenge is well worth the effort and views! Trails are well marked and as we went during the week, very few people on the trail!

This trail combined with the orange loop is my favorite trail at Sweetwater. Good ups and downs to get your heart rate going, and it keeps changing elevation to stay interesting. Not the most scenic views, though there are some beautiful spots. Trails are well marked and well maintained.

This was a pleasant surprise of a trail. It is not strenuous, but it can be a little difficult especially if you spend a lot of time tiring yourself out in the water. If you plan on just hiking this, it might not be the best trail, because there aren’t a lot of views. The best part for me was definitely hiking along the river and looking at the rapids. The best part for my girlfriend was the huge amount of dogs that people bring on the trail. The trail was moderately trafficked, but we did go on a Sunday. Most people were hanging out in the water and picnicking. There was a surprising amount of trash on the trail though — blue confetti from someone’s party that they neglected to pick up, dog poop in a bag, beer cans — we tried to pick up as much as we could and I would implore others to do the same. Overall a really-great-not-TOO-strenuous-hike through a couple different ecosystems. We vacationed in Midtown Atlanta but made the trip and it was very worth it to get away from the city.

Great cardio. Gradual climbs. You’re up on ridges and away from the creek for about 85% of the hike. Not much for sight seeing but a good workout.

2 miles crossing several trails. No one was on the trail we were on. We went on a Thursday morning and we had a great time. We saw the ruins and took a right - loves these trails.

We brought our dogs. It was crowded. Bad combo. Go on a weekday.

Nice hike with great scenery and views. Definitely go early if crowds and sunbathers are not your idea of a nature hike.

Great hike! Well kept with plenty of colored trail markers. Shady and wide enough for two people for most of it. A couple of boulders to climb over, but manageable. We also started out going west/to the right at the trail head and I prefer it. Ending near the creek is really nice and during the last mile or two you have several options of venturing down to the red trail that runs closer to the water. Loved the views - waterfall, creek side, and forest. Many trail options in this park - check out the maps in their very nice welcome center.
