Adventure at Sweetwater Creek

Rate this Adventure 5 miles  - Loop Trail

Added by Jeremy Cournyea

Sweetwater Creek features more than five hiking trails right outside of Atlanta, Georgia. With exciting level four rapids, wildlife filled forests, and diverse topography, the park offers activities for those of all physical abilities. Don't believe me? Below is a video made during my time at the park highlighting Red, White, Yellow, and Orange trail.https://vimeo.com/166442704

The video took nearly four days of shooting to complete and features locations along White, Red, Orange, and Yellow trail. In addition hikers can trek the Green and Brown trails. Wildlife is no stranger to these parts and Sweetwater could easily be named one of the most "living" parks of Georgia. During summer, water levels drop enough for hikers to traverse the water bed itself. One of the best day hikes you can take in Georgia.
