What a nice park! After traveling several for two days we needed some "outdoor time" and this place gave us what we needed. We took the red to white trail after reading a reviewer's remarks and it was the perfect length for us. Allowed us to see the river and mill, and then some small trees and foliage.

Finally got to hike this trail. I was pleasantly surprised by the view. It's nice to hike along the river, listening to nature... It was peaceful. Also, wasn't too intense of a hike so I found it rather relaxing. My favorite part was the mill. Although it was closed off to the public, it was still breathtaking to just be... More

Although the parking lot was packed, the trails were not too crowded. We took the yellow trail back through the woods. It's a beautiful and well-maintained hike. It is steep for a bit but it's very manageable. It is also mostly in the shade. We hiked over to the mill ruins, which were neat to see. This is well worth... More

My husband and I used to visit Sweetwater as a couple before we got married and had kids. We went back today with friends who are much more avid hikers than we are, with a total of 4 kids all under age 5, and we all enjoyed it thoroughly. If you go on the red trail it is incredibly scenic... More

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
