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...

I started with small and then medium. There was s small falls and a old mill which dates back to... More

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

Welp, I had no clue this state park was in my own backyard as an native Atlantan! All things include various spots to fish (so you won't be cramped by a neighbor trying to catch the same fish), picnic tables, several hiking trails to see the big creek and climb the rocks as well as the mill ruins from the...

This park is located only a few miles from my office and is accessible during lunch hours or after work. A true paradise hidden away just outside of Atlanta. With numerous nature trails, historical buildings that include an old mill from the turn of the century, a beautiful lake, and lots of untouched nature! Easy to find and well worth... More

Of course this isn't really just. A 100 acre woods its more like 2500 acres but let me tell you it's beauty and charm are renewing! Sweetwater Creek State Park is the closest State Park to the city of Atlanta. I couldn't believe how peaceful and serene it was. The old textile ruins are magnificent! They have preserved every relic... More
