Explore the most popular river trails in Georgia with hand-curated trail maps and driving directions as well as detailed reviews and photos from hikers, campers and nature lovers like you.

Beautiful falls all along the trail. The traffic got a little heavy on our way out. If you want to see the falls at the end of the trail you’ll have to climb rocks to see it. Not for kids or people with knee problems. My mom was somewhat disappointed because she couldn’t see the falls at the end.

You can access this trail from main overlook/parking area, top parking area, and 2 of the campsites. Beautiful rock formations to climb on, and views of course!

Pretty walk. Lots of stairs for a good workout. The falls was beautiful

A nice, relaxing trail that the whole family, even the canine members, can enjoy. The water scape segment of the trail has interpretative signs that tell about the area’s interesting history and environment. The park is popular with area photographers who use the attractive backgrounds for engagement, wedding, and maternity photos. The trail is also popular for locally sponsored Fun Runs and school cross country meets.

This is definitely my favorite leisurely trail. There are a good number of side trails as well that offer more of a challenge. Overall, it’s nearly perfect.

Daughter was in a leg cast just in time for vacation so I needed some trails that were paved or easy to maneuver with our jogging stroller. This did the trick. We were able to hike along the river while the rest of our party did the stairs to the bottom of the gorge.

Great park and highly recommend coming here. Quite and not a lot of people.

Two short sections under power lines — but worth it to get into the woods. We went after a rain and it was a bit of a bog. There are elevated walkways on portions and bridges across larger water features. A great hike that is surprising is in town.

Nice hike. Not sure why they says it’s 5.1 miles. We took the long route and it wasn’t quite four miles. Still a good workout with a nice view of a waterfall.

Several paths to take form long to short easy to moderate. Wildlife....birds, deer......snakes near the water. One of the paths cuts through a neighborhood. That’s kind of cool.

Great hike and well maintained paths.

Great trails on the east side of the Chattahoochee. Nice views of the river and the overlooks are spectacular. Well worth the $5 parking fee. Get there early on the weekend. It fills up fast.

I walk this several times a week. Never gets old. Love watching the seasons change there. From the squirrels to the deer to the ducks. A great place when combined with George Pierce Park.

We wanted to do the entire loop, and web site says dog friendly. However dogs are not allowed on stair down to the gorge. My son and I did the stairs and my Husband has to stay with dog. That was very disappointing. We did do the north and south rim and both were nice walks dog friendly and beautiful views. Would like to do it again without the dog, but not sure I can do stairs again tomorrow. Only giving 4 stars, because info was wrong and not totally dog friendly.

Definitely not moderate- should be classified as easy. Some slight elevation and pretty smooth. Remember to pay to park- 5usd

Trails were confusing at first. A few unmarked splits but all in all it’s a great little loop. Will be back out there again.

Nice hike with limited views. Road in kinda sucked.

Very nice walking trail, well marked and not too many people. Would recommend to anyone looking for a quiet hike in nature.

Great trail! Definitely take the red trail if you want to put in some work. Only passed a few people. Plenty of swimming spots for dogs.

We hiked both loops. Heading left/south/clockwise for both is definitely the more strenuous direction - much steeper climbs over shorter distances.

I had waited for a decent rain before hitting the trail, and it was definitely worth the wait - the falls were beautiful.

So much wildlife! We saw alligators, wood storks, armadillo, and turkey. A really memorable trip. Not all the trails are well marked and there are many service trails, so at times this hike was confusing even with the map. Even so, this trail is a must see.

A tree took out a large part of the upper viewing platform, so you couldn’t see the upper Falls well, but besides that, it’s a nice hike. Wish you could get down to the water more easily but if you back track when you come down the stairs, you can access the river.

Skip this trail if you want to go hiking in the woods. The only walking trails are really paved beside the river. Once you’re in the woods, it’s a constant barrage of mountain bikes speeding toward you and then getting upset if you don’t see them in time.

Good trail with lots of switchbacks, inclines and declines. If you are feeling brave, there’s a cave that goes back about 50 feet then opens up into a dead end located on the far side of the shore. Look for a rusted chain at the mouth. Being a hiking stick if you have bad knees. Also be on the lookout for snakes and other wildlife as I ran across one right off the trail and saw numerous deer tracks down by the banks.

Nice place and quick stop off interstate to explore. The sounds birds chirping, sound of water rushing down the rocks, butterflies everywhere so relaxing after Atlanta traffic! Seen people doing yoga by the cascades. Very cool!!

That was a great hike, the red trail adds the exclamation point to the difficulty of it for sure. Didn't see anyone out or back except for the workers at the cell tower at the top.

I found this trail to be easy going down and hiking along the paths at the bottoms of the canyon. Coming up provided a first class workout as you climb up 600 stairs. But the beautiful views, the scenic river, the gorgeous waterfalls made it all worthwhile. The sights and sounds were amazing and beyond what I was hoping to find there. Loved it and will be taking friends back to visit this trail again.

Very easy and the trails are horribly marked.

stunning!!! the rock quarry is breathtaking. I would suggest going in the fall. the colors were fantastic when we hiked it a few years back.
