Really nice hike, lots of different things to see. Pretty easy to follow as long as you check the map in the app occasionally.

The Evans mill trailhead has a small parking lot but it’s typically never full. Maverick, my dog, loves to play in the river. There’s is a cool old barn and there is some exposed rock from Arabia. Sometimes the trail has tons of spiderwebs so pay attention. I have never come across anyone else on this trail during weekdays. Overall it’s a good trail and I would recommend trying it out!

TOO MANY SPIDERS AND SPIDERWEBS TO RUN. I had to go back. Plus I parked at an Elementary School which idk if that was ok but... no parking for trail access. Woodsy but needs some upkeep and maintenance.

Nice trail. Ran into a doe and birds along the way.

Nice terrain but trail markings were horrible. Trying to find the path back off the top of the mountain was a PIA.

Nice hike, but the markings are a bit confusing. The granite gets quite slippery when damp.

Nice hike with the dog. We got a little turned around at the barn because the grassy areas have overgrown a lot and the trail markers were harder to see at times. Overall a nice hike.

A fun hike, but it lacks a view and a “payoff” for the climb.

easy trail but be careful in the summer. took my dog there. the rocks on the rock mile trail were so hot we ran from grass pile to grass pile. she loved the lake at the end tho!!

Mike rock is really cool, multiple solution pits make small ponds and natural photogenic areas.

Great place to ride-at least on a Monday afternoon. Solitude.
Started at Stonecrest Mall but was away from hustle & bustle quick.
Lots of visual distraction. Wildlife, geology, hum of tires. No photos due to phone mounted & riding, but lots of wow.
New to biking, do terminology may be off. Steep & short hills so I got off the seat a lot. Nice change of pace from silver comet,

Very little of trail is on dirt. Mainly concrete path, boardwalk and rock.

Awesome trail, extremely pretty, but not very well marked, except around the lake and boardwalk, although it is still fun to navigate with AllTrails. The lake is beautiful and the hike is a gradual incline. If you do this loop you will definitely enjoy yourself. Basically a smaller Stone Mountain with more greenery and a lake. Just be careful not to step in the little pockets of silt on the mountain, those actually contain seeds of a little red plant called diamorpha.

Super cool and unique hike. The face/surface of the mountain is like a different planet. Dog loved splashing through all the little pools of water

Good hike with my dog. Stopped on the north end of the lake so he could get a drink. Went at noon and crossed paths with two sets of hikers.

Cloudy days are great for a hike with the dogs. This hike, I agree, is moderate. There are some inclines that can make you breathless but stopping for a breather will get you to the top. Watch for holes in the path. Small trees fell and left ankle breakers. Hiking poles help a lot. Take water for your breaks. Several nice water locations. Enjoy! We did.

Great local place to hike or run. Different than normal wooded areas. Has cool rock outcroppings. Good year around but fall and spring are beautiful. Shaded trail but also open areas so on hot or winter cold days you feel it.

It had rained a lot the week before so I thought that it would be a good idea to go somewhere with lots of granite so I'd not be walking in as much mud...which was absurd when you think about the fact that granite isn't permeable so there were a whole lot of giant puddles and muddy spots. Still, it was a really nice afternoon out. I went here and did these trails and then walked over to the mountain view trail. I could take or leave the mountain view trail, but these two trails were really nice. The Forest Trail had a lot of precariously balanced dead trees that were fun to look at and there were areas where it skirted bald-granite areas and old quarry sites that looked like I was skirting some disaster area.

There's a short (about .1 miles) detour on the Forest Trail to the grave of someone named Mary Wade that had some really cool granite outcroppings, though the grave itself is nearly in someone's backyard and, it being winter, the foliage was thinned out enough that it felt a little awkward going to it. And the grave itself wasn't that interesting.

The Mile Rock Trail is really cool: it's not much unlike going up Arabia Mountain or Stone Mountain except that it's flat, there are a ton of frogs, and a lot of ruins. It reminded me of a set from the original Doctor Who series. I generally favor more challenging trails and was surprised at how much I enjoyed these two. I'll definitely go back when I want to stay close to the city or don't have the energy for something more strenuous.

Easy and fun. The area is cool and it’s fun to explore. We came out late Sunday afternoon with our beagle and it was a perfect way to end the week. Not much required besides decent shoes and some water. Will definitely do again.

Great for dog walking

One of my favorites.

Blazes on yellow are a tad sparse, but overall an easy trail and a great dog walk.

Very little excitement in terms of scenery or technicality on this trail. Wasn't particularly well marked and not maintained very well. Won't be doing again.

This was a nice hike. The part on the Cascade Trail portion takes you along the stream, with nice views of the small cascades. We did encounter some wildlife - three deer, a black snake, and a brown water snake...keep your eyes open and enjoy. Please be aware that M-F during working hours several trails in this area are closed.

Pretty cool spot.

Awesome trail! Great scene view of Pole Bridge Creek from Cascade Trail. Mostly gradual elevation changes along Wilburn Farm Trail.
Can't wait to hike it again!
