I went there with my dog. I'm a fairly experienced hiker and go to the Chattahoochee Rec trails to keep tuned up. It was easily the best of those parks. The big loop took 1.75 hours. It was an easy hike (2/5 difficulty), with some nice scenery right along a lake. There are no steep inclines- just one spot where a tree had fallen and I had to scramble around it. It would be a great trail to bring someone who is interested in starting hiking, but probably too long for someone who just wants a leisurely stroll in the woods. I'll be checking out the interior side trails next time I visit.

Good Dirt Trail options, well maintained--difficult but worth--water very muddy

Beautiful wildflower trail in the spring - literally hundreds of Piedmont and swamp azaleas in bloom. This trail had the largest number of native azaleas that I have ever seen in the wild, especially along the water's edge - be sure to go along the water as far as you can. Also various species of trillium, May apples, big leaf magnolias and more. The trail is not nearly as difficult as this guide makes it sound. What moderate difficulty there is comes from getting across rocks at an angle or climbing over fallen trees. A few, very brief steep climbs, but mostly the hike consists of walking along a steep shoreline. It's more about agility than strength. The wildflowers make this hike like none other in Atlanta in the spring.

First off the parking lot to the trail is closed at this time. There were notices saying that it was due to be open the end of December but due to inclimate weather it was still closed. We ended up parking in the neighborhood across the street by the pool. About the trail itself. It was a great hike and took us a little over 3 hours. There were a few trees down and some very steep inclines. This was our first time hiking over 3 miles and I think it went great. When we first reached the water we spotted 2 white swans. They came right up to us. Other than them and a few birds we didn't see any other wildlife. I highly recommend this trail, but would not suggest taking children under 7 or those not used to hiking. I look forward to going back in the spring and summer...I bet it is beautiful.

It was a really nice hike. I agree don't be scared of the difficulty rating. There were certain portions that were semi steep but overall an easy hike.

Nice trail in East Cobb - a hidden gem! Not for the faint of heart ~ area of trails near the water are very narrow and full of roots andr rocks. Wouldnt reccomend for the beginner - other than that we loved it and will be back!

Don't be scared away by the difficulty rating for this trail. It is significantly easier that the rating would indicate, except for a couple of rocky areas near the river. Overall, a very enjoyable trail.

The trail was very clean and had some great views of the shoals. I recommend this trail for novice to experienced hikers. however, the trail can become confusing at times as to which way to take, but at the end you will always find your way. Enjoy!
