Loved the hike and even got a bit of a workout.

Very easy and scenic! Almost no inclination unless you veer off into the woods by the creek instead of keeping alongside the river. (Even then it’s still pretty easy.) There’s a few great spots for setting up a hammock as well.

Also most people let their dogs off their leash but I’ve never had a problem aside from someone losing their dog in the woods.

Pretty challenging! A great leg work out as it gets decently steep but steady. Great view of the river.

Good hike. Had maybe 3 hills that were difficult. Few paths that looked well traveled but led no where.

Great ride. It’s a good work out

Great hard trail. Wouldn’t suggest dogs unless they are good at rock scaling or just want to stay on lower trails

Fantastic run and elevation training! I wish I had started earlier because it was quite hot by the time I ended but the crowd wasn't hard to navigate. Can't wait to go back. Xx

Options for bilking/hiking and hiking only. Limited parking.

Gets tough in the lower half with narrow walks by the lake. Difficult for trail running in parts with all the roots. But nice view of some swans on the lake.

Love it.

Great trails for running and hiking.

Some challenging sections, river access

Take a lite lunch up top, and enjoy the view.

I love spending time in the creek. It’s really close to my house, and I come here to get away. It’s usually fairly quiet especially if you walk far enough down the creek. Perfect for what it is, a little tucked away spot in the woods in a populated area.

Well maintained trails with plenty of grade changes to keep it interesting. Hugs lake where wildlife and watersports activities are happening all the time in season.

enjoy this loop. Will incorporate some cut-off trails to legnthen.

Really enjoyed this loop. Well-marked the whole way around and it's got just enough elevation changes to feel like you did something. Will be returning!

Be prepared for a $5 cash fee at the parking lot, unless you have a National Park pass. Excellent trail for families. The maps at the park do not denote the location of the paper mill ruins-look for marker 26. Many hills, roots, large rocks. You can cook off in the creek.

nice and cool this morning , perfect trekking weather.

Good trail! Short and easy.

start your day early, very busy on wknds. Pigeon hill trail most challenging. Drink plenty of water !!!

Great trail. We hiked the largest outer loop. At times it got narrow and swampy down by the lake, but most of the trail was wide and well maintained.

Very busy on the weekends so get there early

Good workout! We took our 3yr old along (he spends a lot of time hiking) and he enjoyed it, too.

great hike and lots of civil war history

10.7 miles? Maybe around 16 according to mile marker signs

Trail was kinda rough and saw a large snake so was nervous for the rest of hike.

Solid trail for a quick hike that’s not too far from Atlanta. Rolling hills and some narrow stretches to keep things interesting but nothing too crazy. Good for all ages.
