  • It should be no surprise that this popular Georgia State Park receives a great score. Unlike many hiking trails, Sweetwater Creek provides a lot of variety on the trail. The visitor will have the opportunity to see a historic building and explore the creek on the rocks while also enjoying a nice hike. I will admit that the first half of my hike had much more interesting surroundings while the latter half of the White Trail seemed like a drag at times. Overall, I would still recommend this to anyone looking for a good hike.
  • Probably one of my favorite places to hike. When I want a less populated trail I go to the orange/yellow trails. I would rate them as easy to moderate. The white trail is by far my favorite though. When at the beginning trail head I veer right to begin the 5 mile loop so I can finish my hike with beautiful views by the creek (and sometimes connect to the red to finish with the ruins). I'd rate the white as moderate to difficult, especially if you finish with the rocky part of the red trail. I also love that it's dog friendly so I can bring my hiking buddy.
