Great trail. Easy relaxed walk. Sometimes bugs, you are on the lake But a can of repellent spray and you’re good to go. Bring plenty of water.

more swotchbacks than expected but great hike.

Nice lakeside trail. I liked the more forested sections best. The trail follows some paved roads into camping areas and picnic areas.

I spoke to the park ranger and they said the trail should be reopen at the first of January.

Awesome trail. Pure wilderness. Started at 28 bridge and made it down to 76 in 3 days. Not bragging either. This trail for that particular 20 miles is moderate to difficult. Some very tall climbs. The gems are hidden within and come up on you right when your about to give up hope. Bring a map. Nat-geo works well. Shows you routes to waterfalls and such. Bring plenty of food for energy but don’t weigh yourself down. That’s the catch. Swim bait for smallmouth bass. Caught 2. If you would like to test your experience then this trail is perfect. You won’t die if you bring water filtration of some variation, however, you will if you don’t.!

Well maintained but in some places poorly marked. Really enjoyed this easy, mostly level walk. Mountain laurel we’re still in bloom, so it was beautiful.

Enjoyed this easy trail. Shaded and follows along a beautiful mountain lake. One section goes along the highway but not for very long.

Nice hike for early morning. The traffic noise was not bad. The trail is fairly wide in most areas and is well marked at crossings with maps. As I got to the last half of my hike the trail got increasingly more crowded. Mostly dog walkers getting in a morning walk. Several places along the trail to park if you are familiar with the area. I was not. The lot I parked at from the map was packed by 10 AM when I finished. Very peaceful walk through the wood with a lot of shade early in the morning. Very pretty water falls over the dam. I would hike this trail again but start early as I did today.

The trees and breeze make a summer Hike lovely. The back side trail area is very precarious. Not kid or pet friendly. Would do again.

super easy, quick hike

Most of the trail is mapped out great! However, if you have young kids with you, getting through part of it will be tough, due to feeling like you’re on the edge of a small cliff with water right below you. All and all; it’s a great hike and gorgeous waterfall and swimming hole!

We parked at the trail head behind the old Roswell mill. They’ve added stairs to the start of the trail which are not dog friendly. They have a wide grate which hurts the dogs’ paws when walking. If you have a dog, I would recommend a alternate trail head.

Trail was nice when it was covered but walking along a busy highway was not ideal. Nice hike overall.

A nice flat run through high grass on wide gravel trails. In summer, two places to see the river. If you start near the boat launch area, you can finish there for a cold swim.

This was my first GA hike, back in March. It was not a loop, part of the trail was closed, so I had to double back when I only had a small portion to go. Otherwise it was lovely!

it's a great trail! it's very quiet with not a lot of foot traffic. it is slippery in some places and very narrow in others. some areas are probably a little dangerous to go with your kids. but it's a great hike. you're always in the shade cause of the trees and the river is very peaceful. would absolutely recommend to anyone!

The trail is in the city but the walk is beautiful. My only complaint would be that you can hear road noise almost throughout the entire walk. When I’m hiking, I like the feeling of quiet and solitude. The trail is well marked and super clean! I would definitely hike this again if I just need to get out and clear my head.

A great hike on the way down to Florida. Covered the trail in an hour with stops. Had to use a stick to clear spiderwebs but it was a weekend. Really cool elevation changes and more than enough for a return trip.

Smooth hike with proper trials and dog friendly. A walk along the river to waterfalls or hike in woods ... it does have all options.
