South Peachtree Creek Trail Reviews

I absolutely adore this trail. I love how you feel like you're right in the middle of nature, but without all the bugs n such because the trail is paved. My favorite part of the trail is the graffiti. It's absolutely gorgeous and I'm happy the powers that be leave the artwork there for all to admire. my second fave part of the trail is the boardwalk above the train tracks. Stunning view. Also, the sound of the creek is quite peaceful. They are constantly enlarging the trail so have fun and explore! Also, watch out for the off-beaten trails (primarily for bikers and hikers), there's poison ivy in the bushes.

By day, seemed clean enough and void of dangerous debris. If abundant graffiti on signs, walls, and bridges indicates late night activity, local law enforcement may stay busier with this trail.
