one of my favorite hikes in atlanta. so many trails so you never do the same hike twice. the creek is pretty and good for dogs. parking is limited.

Little confusing with so many trail connections but overall good trail. Nice views with good trails!

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.

This is my favorite loop I've found so far! Not insanely difficult but you'll feel like you did some good work after it. Love it!

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

Easy walk.

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.

Good easy hike. Once you're down to the river you can go off trail and it gets way more challenging!

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!

Nice ride with several timely road crossings.

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.

Great trail! It’s a very good loop for hiking or running!

Nice trail, starts to pick up mid-morning. Definitely buggy so wear bug spray!
