loved it!! beautiful scenery and a great workout

Good nature-filled trail for being located in the suburbs. Gravel and dirt paths with good signage throughout. Creek and pond feature at various points. Able to hear road noise through decent amount of trail. Neighborhood houses visible at parts.

went for the 3.5 mile and ended up going 5 miles. There's a path that takes you to the water as part of the trail about 4 miles in with no sign that says do not enter yet after about .5 mile there is no place to go, it just stops at the water so we had no choice but to back track. Didn't care for the road noise but it was nice to see the dam and water fall.

Well kept trails perfect for beautiful views.

I really loved this trail! I parked off Riverside Road on the south side and it requires a $5.00 cash/check self serviced parking pass, but also accepts America the Beautiful Annual pass.It was a beautiful trail with several different well kept up paths you can take. If you do the entire experience, it's close to 7 miles to complete. We took our time and completed 4 miles in 2 hours. Some inclines, mostly shaded. I would rate this trail, medium, for the area depending on skill level. It was easy for me, after hiking in Colorado. The Falls are off marker VC-19. Great maps throughout to guide your experience. Dog friendly!

When I go hiking I like to feel as if it's just me and the trees and wildlife. Sadly, this didn't give me that feeling. You can still hear the traffic, there are to many people for my liking and 1 of the trails takes you through a neighbourhood, no bueno.

Great trail for dogs and kids! Lots of beautiful nature, creeks and even a lake to explore!

Park as soon as you turn off Old Alabama for the 1.4 mile hiking trail - easy walk in wooded area. Drawback was the drone of traffic in the background and rather monotonous scenery.

Beautiful hike - you forget you're in the middle of suburbia.

Awesome property and super awesome history. Love this place, will be back next time I'm down. It took awhile to find the falls, I guess we were a bit sleepy or something as they can almost be seen from the main entrance. Lots of rocks and roots so keep your toes up! I stubbed a toe and almost crashed. This is a must hike or trail run for everyone in Atlanta. Come on, get out there, do it!

Most recordings don't include this little side trek up the road to Leita's house. There is an interpretive sign there too, a must-see I'd say. Love this place, it was a nice relaxing run in the woods this day!

Loved it!

A few uphill climbs to challenge the out of shape .
Overall, it is good.
As long or as short as you want it to be.

From the amazing spillway to the elevation gains this walk is well worth your time. Big Creek (Vickery Creek) boast a number of beautiful wildflowers and wildlife.

Hiking for 1 hour and 45 minutes. Once we got around to the smaller bridge we took a paved trail back. Beware this looks easy but has a long steep section that was very tiring. It pops you out on a street in front of a park and neighborhood that is next to the main entrance and you have to walk the street to get back.

Another nice hike close to the city. Didn’t see many people when we first set out at 10 but more trafficked as we finished at noon.

Easy and scenic trail in the heart of Roswell. Will make you feel like you left traffic behind.

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.

Beautiful hike with lots of options within the system. Long 4+ plus miles to short 1 mile easy loop. Big minus...dog poo. All over the path and in bags. Pickup after yourself.

such a great trail to get a good quick workout in. this place will always be dear to my heart as I used to live just 5 minutes from here. the hills are good ones and in the summer, my dog used to get in the creek and cool off. so many great places for photos too.

Great trail and if you have dogs there is a dog park right by the parking.

Well maintained trail. My only complaint is that the “Take Outs” along the trail are reserved for emergency vehicles only. There are no short cuts for hikers as the paved road in the middle is locked at the entrance.

One of our favorite go to hikes. Shady and nice waterfall to end the hike on a warm summer day or enjoy waterfall without getting in

I recommend you go early, this is a very popular area. The parking was full by 10am.

Wide gravel trail with some moderate elevation! Great hike in the middle of suburban neighborhood's!

This is an extremely well marked/traveled trail with many turn-offs. At each turnoff, the NPS has posted a little map with waypoints and a “you are here” legend. Let your kids do the navigating. If they make a wrong turn, there’s not much time or distance lost to the next waypoint.
