East Palisades Trail

East Palisades hike trail along the Chattahoochee river is an awesome hike trail with lots of nice landscapes. The bamboo forest, rock formations, and mixed terrain made the trail especially nice for a 7- mile hike. This trail is highly recommended for hikers who want to enjoy beautiful landscapes while getting lots of exercise scrambling and hiking!

Nice trail once you get passed the first half mile. I'm not sure why but there has been a ton of clear cutting and all the debris and downed trees are still laying around. After you're clear of that area the trail becomes a trip back in time to a prehistoric era marsh going crazy with wild life. My two oldest kids and I had a blast. We saw hundreds of crabs, birds, lizards and even a baby fawn!

Alot of trails in this park. I completed the Rock Dam Trail today and had a great time. The only way to get to this trail is off of another trail. It can be somewhat confusing at first. 3 campsites on this trail. Completely went by the first one without noticing but site 2 and 3 seemed nice. Alot of water crossing. I think once you complete the Rock Dam Trail and the parts on the other trail that you have to take to get to it is roughly 9 miles all together. The beginning of the trails start at the park entrance and loop back around. A few of the marked trees had fallen but over all marked well. I will go back.

This trail is really waaayyyy out there. No cell service so we could not track the hike. It is an easy hike flat for the most part. The trail looked to be primarily a horse trail. We were disappointed that a trail named for a river only provided a couple of brief glimpses of a river. We heard birds but were unable to spot any in the dense tree tops. The only things were were able to spot were a couple of interesting bugs and orb spiders everywhere. Needed a stick to get through the webs. All in all I have to say, it was a nice walk in the woods but I am able to spot more wildlife in my back yard.

The trail's landscape is beautiful. However, the trails are poorly marked. Apparently the direction of travel for hikers and bikers are opposite of one another. The direction of travel differs by day as well, which isn't clearly stated on the trails themselves. It would be helpful if the direction of travel is posted throughout the paths including who (hikers or cyclists) should walk where on which day.

Some of the bikers are rude and off putting, especially if you get the direction of travel wrong. If you have a thick skin and patience go for it!
