Awesome trail ! Marked very well we got 6.5 miles and didn’t cross all the paths. Great views of the river in a lot of places. Bamboo forest was very cool I’ve never seen bamboo so thick before. Lots of big rock cliffs along sides...More

The East Palisades unit of the Chattahoochee Recreational Area is spectacular. Not only are there excellent views of the Chattahoochee river, awesome trails, river access for paddling, but also an amazing bamboo forest. There's something for everyone on this trail!

Since we don't have a car, getting to the good hiking trails is always a challenge as it's too far away to take public transport. We were surprised to find this gorgeous trail within the city and a short Uber ride away! Since we took...More
