This easy trail (1.5 miles) explores Power's Branch, a tributary of the Chattahoochee River and a ridge above the river. It include scenic stream side views, some with large granite boulders that make the area a photographer's dream. The land is adjacent to busy Roswell Road and actually includes a portion of the original road as well as part of the grade for the Bull Sluice Railroad.
