This unit contains about 5 miles of trails. Winding through forested floodplains, ridges and ravines, these trails display a natural beauty in all seasons. For thousands of years this area has been occupied by humans, including Indian villages.
Parking: There are a couple of places to park. To start your route along the river there is a parking lot off of Whitewater Creek Rd. The other lot is at the end of Indian Trail (just off of Northside Dr.)
More parking info.
Directions: From Atlanta, take I-75 north to I-285. Go east on I-285 to Northside Drive. Go south on Northside Dr., travel about 1 mile and turn onto Indian Trail. Indian Trail ends at the parking lot.
Notes: As is the case with many Atlanta trails, this is a very special place which showcases some beautiful vistas. Of special interest is the view of the river from the wooden overlook.
Along the river shoreline mud can be a concern, especially after heavy rain. Hills! there are lots of them and they are formidable but fun.
