    This is a little deceiving to call it a separate trail as Indian Trail really is a dirt road that dead ends into the Indian Trail Parking area.

    This is part of the Whitewater Creek loop and trails. The road in is a bit messy as it is a single lane dirt road carrying two way traffic, hikers and their dogs off leash. There is very little room to pull over to let someone else pass. Additionally this road runs along the top of a ridge, so be careful as there are no guardrails and the banks are unforgiving.

    This trek is a decent workout and not a choice for those who need flat trails or gentle slopes. You start at the top of a 1000 foot elevation ridge, work your way down a terraced slope to about 800 feet elevation at the Hooch (Chattahoochee River), meander through a flat sandy/marshy area and then work up another 1000 foot elevation ridge via a set of switchbacks. The loop continues back down in the holler (Non Southern translation: a small valley between ridges or mountains) and back up the original ridge. Here you will empty out on the single lane road you drove in on and walk a bit to your ride.

    A lot of great nature, history, and even a bamboo forest are found throughout the Whitewater Creek trails, so be sure to read the reviews on Palisades - Whitewater Creek Trail (Georgia) Hiking Trail in Tripleblaze.

    See you on the trails!

    The trail starts with a steep slope to the bottom of the River Bend then levels off and runs along the Chattahoochee River.
