Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area: Vickery Creek Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Feeding off the flow of Vickery Creek, the Roswell Mill operated as one of the most important manufacturing facilities in the South from 1838 until the Civil War. One of this hike’s highlights is the site of the spillway dam that controlled the flow of water to factory buildings that lay downstream.

The Roswell Manufacturing Company operated at times as a gristmill, and at other periods as a sawmill, but it was most noted as a textile producer and supplier of Confederate uniforms during the Civil War. The mill became a primary target for Gen. William Sherman, and Union troops destroyed the mill structures during their devastating Atlanta campaign. This hike not only takes you past the dam but also crosses the prominent knoll that looks over Vickery Creek and hugs a bluff to allow excellent views across the creek gorge."
