The Palisades are a great in-town trail system. The east side trail surrounds the eastern banks of the Chattahoochee river, exploring high-elevation overlooks, historic ruins, and a bamboo forest on a network of over 4 miles of hiking and running trails. While the west side trail follows the western banks of the Chattahoochee on over 3 miles of paved walking and running trails.

The weaving and winding network of the trails can be confusing, but nearly every trail intersection is signed with a trail map. It’s still relatively easy to get turned around, though, so if you go, you may want to carry a GPS watch.

The trails themselves are relative easy. You do have the option to venture off the dirt trails for a more technical hike. The bamboo forest area is very relaxing. You can get in the lake or just to a break for a scenic lunch. Many kayakers frequent this area.
