Sweetwater Creek is a small park about 20 minutes west on I-20 from downtown Atlanta. It’s tucked away in the middle of a residential area and has two decent size lakes and a wide, quick flowing creek/river. The largest trail loop runs along the edge of the creek for about 40% of the total distance. Well groomed and clearly marked, there’s a good mix of small rock scrambles creek side and then a short elevation climb up out of the creek basin. Definately a great strech-the-legs-after-a-long-winter type of hike.
