South River Trail Description

South River Trail offers a wooded route along its namesake river, about 15 miles southeast of Atlanta. On its west end is Martin Luther King Jr. High School.

On its east end, it ties into the area’s extensive trail network with a connection to the Arabia Mountain Trail, which in turn connects to the Rockdale River Trail.

Parking and Trail Access

Mid-trail, parking is available at the Panola Shoals Trailhead (intersection of Panola Road and Snapfinger Road).

South River Trail Reviews

My husband and I were visiting our godchild and she took me to the park for a walk. She says it is one of her favorites places to walk and reflect. I see why. To say it is beautiful is an understatement. We saw deer, foot prints of other wild life, sandy shoals and waterfalls. The next time we come we are bringing our bicycles. Awesome!

This was my second time visiting the trail. We walk the trail the first time. Yesterday my son and I decided to ride our bikes. We really enjoyed the ride.

We were passing thru the Atlanta area on our way from the Silver Comet Trail, saw the sign to this trail and just could not resist stopping.
This is a little jewel of a trail, the sparkling water of the South River always delightfully close by.
We began at the Panola Shoals Trailhead. If you have a Mountain bike you could play around at the tiny 'beach' right at the banks of the river. There is a city-block long granite boulder in the middle of the South River; water flows over this rock in silvery sheets, creating a pattern that never repeats itself.
This trail is only abt. 3 miles in length, but it connects with miles of other trails .
Worth checking out if you are in the area.
