Cochran Mill Falls Professional Reviews and Guides

"Following cession of Creek lands in Georgia in 1826, Cheadle Cochran received this property as reward for service in the War of 1812 and built a gristmill on Little Bear Creek.

In 1870 Cheadle’s elder son, Berry, erected a mill on nearby Bear Creek, later converting the dam for hydroelectric power for the town of Palmetto. Acquired by Fulton County in the 1970s, the 800-acre park now features hiking and equestrian trails and picnic areas."

"After crossing Little Bear Creek, the trail follows an old road to Bear Creek, where it climbs along the riverbank to two falls. From the second falls, it rises to an old road and explores the Bear Creek watershed."

Trail is very overgrown and not sure it is entirely still available. Seems construction in the area may have changed some of the layout. Walking on GA85 bridge is dangerous at best.

I do not know where the trail is, but I could not find it, and nothing is marked out there. There were places to park in the wood line, near a dirt boat ramp above the dam. I walked the perimeter of the wood line and could only find a weak trail that went about 100 feet, terminating at a large swampy area, but nothing more. It was disappointing, as this is only 3 miles from me and I was looking forward to a close walking trail.
