HIGHLIGHTS: This short in-out, backtrack hike starts just off Riverside Road in Roswell and climbs over a series of short ridges then descends to a made-made waterfall that was once the site of an old mill. The ruins of the 19th century mill can be seen along the creek a short distance from the mill managers house at Allenbrook (which still stands today). About 0.3 miles downstream from the waterfall is a covered bridge that offers spectacular views up and down Vickery Creek. Hikers of all skill levels will enjoy this moderate terrain, and a more challenging route can be planned by following the Yellow and Red trails which make a wide loop in the northern and eastern sections of the park.
