There is a small ruin site on the bank of the Chattahoochee River at the northern end of the East Palisades section of the park. All that remains are the foundations of a couple of buildings. In my research I found one website that claimed these are the ruins of an old mill, but I don’t know if this is true or not. The ruins are small and largely forgotten by everyone, including the National Park Service, so information about them is pretty much non-existent.

The ruins can only be reached by hiking. For details on the trails in the area, please visit the East Palisades Loop Hike page. The ruins are discussed in relation to the hike.
