My favorite place to hike!

With so many beautiful hiking trails, it's easy to spend hours here. I love brining my dog and exploring some of the best trails Atlanta has to offer.

It’s time to get real. I spent a ridiculous amount of my time researching yurts in Georgia and decided on Georgia State Parks and then proceeded to narrow my selection down to the Sweetwater Creek Park based on all the things you can supposedly do there. There is a dock feet away from the yurt village. It seemed perfect to... More

Wow what a great place to talk you family and dogs to walk to enjoy nature. Hot day but a lot of shade, need to take water with you.

I went hiking here with my girlfriend this past weekend and had a great time. I've been here multiple times for hiking and love it! I enjoy all the trails but my favorite is the white trail. There is plenty of wildlife to be seen like deer, birds, skinks, frogs, etc. I recommend this park to anyone who loves hiking!

Sweetwater Creak State Park is not far from Atlanta off I-20 West. It combines flowing water in creek, dammed lake, and hilly surroundings. There are multiple trails of different length, some goes along the water, others go up and down the hills. The New Manchester Mill ruins from Civil War time is to see along one of the trails. There... More

This is my favorite hike within a close distance to Metro Atlanta. Can be a nice day-trip or a morning hike depending on how you chose to spend your day there. Parking fee is required but they offer multiple trails so your hike can be as short or as long as you want it to be. I bring my dog... More

We would go walking on the trails. We would even get in the water and go across the rocks. Sit and have picnics.

I recently visited the park with a group to go on a hike. I was only able to explore a portion of the park. We hiked to the ruins that doubled as a set in The Hunger Games: Mockingjay (if you're a fan). The paths, river, and lake were beautiful. The trails are color coded for convenience. The entrance fee... More

My fiance and I have visited Sweetwater Creek four times over the past few years, and each visit has allowed us to explore a new area of the park. We've hiked along all of the colored trails and also took a guided tour of the mill ruins (it's a shame they don't bring tours down there anymore, but it's probably... More
