    Great trail for a sunday stroll. Kids will love running through the woods and exploring the small caves. Being next to the river drowns out that noisy Atlanta traffic! Can be crowded on the weekends, as are most trails close to the city. Dog friendly, too!

    This is a really great place to hike! The trail beside the river is very flat while the trails leading up to the bluffs can be steep and scenic. Check out the overhanging rocks and switchback climbs.
