This was a great day out despite the midsumner Georgia heat and humidity. Well laid out trails, just enough scrambling over rocks and roots to make it interesting and lots of wildlife as an added bonus. The walk along the river to the falls is fantastic. A few practicalities, $5 for parking payable at the gate, good footwear (I wear... More

The families had gotten together last year for the 4th of July 2014, for a cookout and fun with the kids. We had a wonderful time, really enjopyed ourselves.

Looking for a quick escape from the City of Atlanta, well noticed this State Park on the map as well as on Highway 20. Decided to drive out and go for a hike/run. Wonderful trails and Visitors Center but the prize was ruins of an old mill along the riverbanks. Can't take very good pictures but couldn't miss at this... More

Great big park with a lake, bait shop, museum of local history and wildlife, beautiful creek and old mill. We did the red trail down to the old mill and also got in the creek for a bit too cool off. Bring ur water shoes for the little ones. Had a blast and definitely going to come back.

Nice and quiet, with beautiful views, lots of picnic tables, restrooms and even yurts to rent. (Yurts currently under reconstruction. )

I've been to this park before but our group walked on a different trail this time. The trailhead was moved to a different location. The trailhead is now located near the interpretive center. There were 13 people in our group. This trail was a lot more strenuous than the previous trail. I felt like it was never going to end.... More

For hiking, geocaching, and scenic views, it just doesn't get much better than this. This is one of our favorite state parks. Plan on spending the better part of the day here if you're hiking. There are so many great trails here. They also have a very nice interpretive center.

With a fee of only $5 per car, this park is worth the price of admission. A highlight of the park is taking the red trail to the Civil War-era New Manchester textile mill ruins. We've continued farther south on the trail along Sweetwater Creek and have seen blue heron in the water! This past visit we hiked all along... More

We went to this park for the first time and we loved it. The ruins were great to see and my son how is 5 love being so close to the water. We skipped rocks and and climbed them too. Great family place. Parking can be a pickle. We will return to geocache.
