Not well marked. Mill is nicely restored and photo opportunity. We never could find a trail head but enjoyed meandering around. Nice picnic area with tables available. Mill pond provides good bird viewing

This is a great quick walk that is close enough to hit in the afternoon. Beware of the trail head closing at Riverside though......and by all means dont cross the police barrier!

We hiked this trail with our two dogs on a late Sunday morning. We started at Roswell Mill and looped around. It wasn't that busy, which was nice There are some helpful maps along the trail and some tree's marked blue so you can follow along. However, not all tree's are clearly marked and it is not posted which way is a dead end, or that an area of the trail is closed. Because of this we did a lot of doubling back, and thats our only gripe There are many forks along the trail and a couple map postings were missing so one must resort to doing an eenie -meenie -minnie -mo which part of the trail to go..but it kept it interesting. The trail is peppered with moderately steep inclines, its not your grandma's trail - but the areas near the falls and dams (By the Mill) are handicap accessible and they are very pretty. Because its so close to our home, and offeres some great views we'll surely be back.

I think this is a very good hike to start out with if you are just getting into hiking and is also a good hike if you want some peace and quiet. I first started exploring all the trails by vickery creek around August of 2008, when I first started getting into hiking and was looking at somewhere to start. The only frustration I have had is that one part of the trails are closed off, I am guessing because people have fallen from the rocks into the creek's water. I would like to explore that part of the trail, but just have to wait and be patient. Nice scenery and it is always great looking at the water-fall created by the old roswell mill dam. Just be careful when it is rainy outside, the mud can get really slippery and if I didn't have my walking sticks I would have fell off the side of the trail!
