What was once a very nice, small nature park with well maintained trails, a nice stream and a covered pavilion has somehow fallen into a state of disrepair. The trails have deteriorated to the point that some places are dangerous. The nature placards have faded...More

My husband and I walked, stopped and took pictures and just enjoyed being outside on a nice boardwal and at times just a dirt path.

The park is easy to find and many people like to picnic there and swim and fish in the creek. They have a screened in bldg with a kitchen for gatherings. The walking trails are easy to follow. The scenery is welcoming.

Aside from a few buildings and a playground near the parking area, this is an undeveloped parcel of Northern Georgia real estate criss-crossed by footpaths all of which seem to be steep--especially when you are coming up them. My grandson and I stopped here on...More

Our group of about 75 people had a meal together and the kiddos had places to play and the trails are really cool to walk, especially during the cooler months.
