2nd time I've been, and this time I learned that Sope Creek Trail connects to Cochran Shoals Trail, and when they switch over there are separate maps on the trail. Both maps look very similar so you need to make sure you know which one you are on.
We walked an extra 3 miles going to the wrong parking lot.
I was still a great hike, but it's a good thing we weren't in a rush to get out.

One of my favorite trails in the Atlanta area. On the easier side of moderate, but a great workout nonetheless. Wide paths, nicely shaded, and dog friendly.

Not the most strenuous trail if you stick to the set route. Going off-path is a better workout. Quit trail with wildlife and a nice view of the river.

Great workout. The trail is well-maintained. However, there is a great deal of uneven terrain and quite a few obstacles (lots of roots, downed trees, etc.). Beautiful views of Bull Sluice Lake and the surrounding area. Even on a Sunday afternoon it wasn't very crowded.

Great loop trail. Well-marked throughout with lots of little areas that take you the water edge. Path gets incredibly narrow along water. Lots of wildlife. Be mindful of your steps - very “root-y” through almost entire trail.

This is an easy, well shaded trail with decent signage and lots of options to explore. The mill ruins by the creek are definitely worth seeing! Very pretty for an in-town hike, but there’s a good bit of noise from nearby roads. On the plus side, it was not as crowded as expected for a beautiful Friday in the springtime.

Great hike with scenic views of both the river and wildlife. Numerous turtles and geese fill the area with life.

Great hike! Lots of climbing and a good workout! Beautiful!!!

Good trail through the trees with steep incline and city views. You can also opt for the road all the way up - great views over park area and city; has more of a gradual incline. Two or three points from the road where you can connect onto the nature trail. Stays consistently busy - “lightly moderate”, depending on the time.

Great trail, hirstorical markers and great views. Got my geeky history fix as well as a great hike.

nice history and view

first time doing a MTB trail and it kicked my ass.. might stick to sidewalks for now

There are many trails of many varying distances and difficulty levels throughout Kennesaw Mtn trail network. I go regularly and have not tired of it three years on. I enjoy taking friends and family who visit the area, as it is often their favorite activity that we do in the NW burbs. Definitely some challenging stretches. TAKE WATER.

Mostly foggy and Rain. Passing front, dropping temperatures to Mid 50's.

This is one of my favorite hikes that’s super close to home. I do this hike about twice a week for a nice little cardio exercise. Not too many difficult hills, balanced in general. Usually very peaceful, not a ton of people here on a weekday afternoon.

It says moderate but I would say more on the easy side. Trails well defined and lots of different loops you can create within the park. Great experience and very kid/dog friendly

Foggy and misty.

Great trail! Low traffic, friendly hikers and bikers. Very dog-friendly. I only wish the trail was marked better - we did a little unintended off-roading. Great stick selection.

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

One of my favorite hikes I have done! Definitely would rate it hard

trail running

I love running here. Plenty of ups and downs and twists and turns to keep it engaging!! Beautiful Woods and river!

Relatively flat with only one area that will make you breathe very hard. Does not contain many roots or rocks that can twist ankles. Not a very scenic route but the length makes it very nice for getting in shape.

Easy and the perfect spot to relax
