Sweetwater Creek Park is a perfect spot to take a date for an entire day. This park offers a large lake perfect for canoeing, fishing, or kayaking; they even have a small lakeside bait shop that has hourly canoe, kayak, and Jon boat rentals.
One of the biggest highlights of this small park is the hiking. I do a lot of hiking all over the north Ga. Mountains, and I have to say this hike is as challenging, and offers views near equal to or better than many of your mountain hikes.
The hikes are split into a few different interconnecting trails giving a total of around 5 miles of good hiking. Some parts of the trail are somewhat easy, while other parts are very challenging and offer some nice outcropping boulders to navigate around.
The majority of the hikes are full of excellent scenery such as a cascading river, a scenic waterfall area, and an old riverside mill house. This is definitely a day trip to bring your camera. There is abundant wildlife with a lot of deer and turkey spotting.
There are plenty of picnic table, grills, and covered pavilions with large grills for a big cookout.
