First time here. The trails were awesome. Such a good place for walking/hiking. Great exercise and beautiful nature scenery. I thoroughly enjoyed my 3.5 mile walk. So many different trails to try. I'll be back to try other trails.
Great mountain, with views at every turn. Either walk through the forest or hike to the top of the mountain roughly 1000ft elevation and 1.5mile road up and enjoy the view of Atlanta. Bathrooms are available at the welcome center.
