Are you looking for a remote, scenic hike in the busy Atlanta metro area? The trail system at Sweetwater Creek State Park may be right for you. The park's constantly expanding trail system lies on both the west and east sides of beautiful Sweetwater Creek. You can explore the historic mill ruins and the numerous rapids on Sweetwater Creek, visit the historic farming area on Jack's Hill, or traverse the dry ridges on the east side of Sweetwater Creek. This hike was a partial redo of a previous hike of mine at Sweetwater Creek State Park. This hike occurred on August 29th, 2015. My plan was to hike the Red Trail to its southern terminus and then follow the White Trail over Jack's Hill and back to the trailhead.
Dear readers: I have invested a tremendous amount of time and effort in this website and the Georgia Waterfalls Database the past five years. All of the work that has gone in keeping these websites updated with my latest trip reports has almost been like a full-time job. This has not allowed me to pick up a paid job to save up money for college, and therefore, I will unfortunately have to take out loans as I head to college this September. I plan to study environmental science and molecular biology, with a focus on environmental conservation, which is my passion. I want to do research that would ultimately benefit the well-being of the earth, as it feels like a mission to me. If you find the information on this website interesting, helpful, or time-saving, you can say "thanks" and help me out by clicking the button above and making a contribution. I will be very grateful for any amount of support you give, as all of it will apply toward my college tuition. Thank you!
Coming in 2021! (Delayed by Covid-19)
