Added by Kelley Le

Explore the Roswell Mill an a covered bridge and Vickery Creek Falls on this 4.7 mile loop.

From Riverside Road, the Vickery Creek Trail takes you alongside the creek, then to an intersection where you will turn right. Switch onto Outer Loop Trail at the next intersection, and keep an eye out for marked junctions going forward.

The trail will take you to the Roswell Mill waterfall, then to a covered bridge 3 miles in, before reaching the ruins of the mill, itself. There is a nice waterfall past the mill ruins.

Retrace your steps across the covered bridge, cross the creek, then take Vickery Creek Trail back to where you started.

To keep on route (there are lots of trail junctions) follow these waypoints in order, as marked on the park's trail map: 1, 2, 4, 6, 7, 20, 21, 23, 26, 27, 25, 18, 17, 16.

For more, visit downtown Roswell down the street for great food venues and various shops.

Great Day Hike!

Amazing that this is so close to downtown Roswell. Nice series of trails--great for a family outing. Plenty to see on the trails--waterfalls, old mills, etc--and the trails are well maintained. If you pay attention to the markers, you'll do well.
