For $5, we enjoyed a wonderful afternoon in a beautiful, peaceful setting just minutes from Atlanta. The interpretive center is wonderful and we enjoyed hiking to see the mill ruins. Lovely park!

20 miles west of Atlanta this state park is very and nice for a day trip with only $5 for parking. We did the 'Red Trail' (2 mile round-trip with moderate difficulty). It was a little slippery at some places on the trails as we just had tennis shoes and not true hiking shoes due to the rain and the... More

Though this park is close to the city, it is quiet and a great escape. The nature center has a great museum about the history of the area. The trails are little used (except for the short jaunt to the old mill); the reservoir is fabulous for kayaking. I hear the geocaching is great as well. Though busy on weekends,... More

My daughter and I hit the 5 mile, white blazed trail. We were both impressed. The trail is well marked so there is little chance of getting lost. Plenty of diversity in the terrain, from open fields to rock scrambling to creek-side meandering. And 5 miles is a perfect length for a kid...long enough to feel meaningful, yet short enough...

After several long flights this was a great place to get out and about stretch the legs etc. It did get a bit hard going for the un acclimatised. The main office and the displays were really good. The decorated stones leading the way to a wedding gave the kids something to look out for and count.

Hubby and I love to take weekend getaways and for his birthday I planned a romantic long weekend in Atlanta. We hike everywhere we go and just happened to find this park was on the way home, according to all trails dot com so we decided to hike the red trail on a lovely Monday holiday afternoon. We wanted to... More
