The City of Roswell has several well-known trails and outdoor recreational areas due to its proximity to the Chattahoochee River and the natural beauty of the surrounding area. Some popular trails in the Roswell area include the Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area, the Oxbo Trail, the Vickery Creek Trail, Big Creek Greenway, and the Roswell Riverwalk.

The Oxbo Trail runs between Waller and Grimes Bridge Parks with an extension that follows Waller Creek for about a mile. It has a mix of dirt, paved, and crushed stone trails and can be accessed from either park or from a parking area along Grimes Bridge Road.  A bridge separates the Oxbo Trail from the Vickery Creek Trail system (which is managed by the National Park Service), so a longer hiking option is available if you join the two trail systems. This hike starts at the Oxbo Road trailhead, follows the the creek upstream to the waterfall, crosses the bridge, then loops back from the ridgeline over the river.  The highlight of this route is the waterfall along Oxbo Road. It’s impressive from the bridge – especially after a heavy rain – but the waterfall over the dam is easiest to see in the winter months.
