Vickery Creek Trail Professional Reviews and Guides

"This loop trail explores a low knoll north of the Chattahoochee River and east of the oxbow in Vickery Creek. The fast-moving creek supplied power to Roswell Mill, which you can also explore on this hike."

"Roswell King first glimpsed these wooded hills above the Chattahoochee River during a journey to the Dahlonega gold fields in the 1820s. King recognized that the terrain would someday be an ideal site for a textile mill. In 1839, following the Cherokee Removal, he established the village of Roswell on the recently ceded land.

During the Civil War, the village’s four mills and tannery were all destroyed by Union cavalry. Several were rebuilt, operating into the early 1900s. Today, vestiges of the mill village may still be seen in the cottages and commercial buildings of historic Roswell."
