Sweetwater Creek is a peaceful tract of wilderness only minutes from bustling downtown Atlanta. The most popular trail (red) follows the free-flowing stream to the ruins of the New Manchester Manufacturing Company, a textile mill burned during the Civil War. Beyond the mill, the trail climbs rocky bluffs to provide views of the beautiful mile-long stretch of white-water rapids below.

Sweetwater Creek State Park offers 2,000 acres of wilderness with 9 miles of hiking trails that lead to the scenic river and shoals, and to the ruins of an impressive Civil War era mill. Enjoy fishing, canoeing, birdwatching, picnicking, outdoor photography and much more.

The 215-acre George Sparks Reservoir is popular with anglers and provides a pretty setting for feeding ducks and canoeing. Fishing supplies are available in the park's bait shop, while wildlife and history displays, trail maps, snacks and gift items may be found in the Visitor Center -- the most environmentally responsible building in Georgia (LEED platinum status).
