My husband and I found this great little park one warm April day in 2016. It's a clean, small, but nicely stocked park. By stocked I mean there are picnic tables, swings, a building to rent for groups, restrooms, and ample parking. There are also walking trails with color coded trails of varying difficulties. We actually returned a couple of... More

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 a 99+ degree day as we were travelling through. First of all, it is only... 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.

Beautiful hike down to the creek. Sort of steep coming back up. BUT, there are places to sit and rest.

Went here with my wife and our 2 dogs recently. Its a little hard to find, but well worth the drive. Gorgeous riverfront scenery, nice views. The trail markers can be a little confusing. I would not advise women to use this trail alone, as it is very isolated. Not that its not nice. I would definitely go back!

This is a nice little park with clean restrooms and several hiking trails. The trail markers are fairly confusing and the thick woods and mountainous terrain can make for a confusing time, even with the maps provided. There is a little creek on the trail that is fantastic for wading and the park is dog friendly.
