The trail features a 4.7 mile path crossing seven rustic footbridges over Pine Log Creek. From two overlooks, hikers can view Pine Log Mountain - one of the highest elevations in Bartow County's Appalachian foothills - and the site of the Pine Log Cherokee Indian Village. The trail system includes two loops east and west and is rated moderate. Although some of the terrain is rugged there is only one significant climb, with an elevation gain of about 420 feet. The eastern loop takes hikers by an early CCC quarry pond for picturesque views. We will do the west loop first.
|How to Get There:|
From Exit 293 on I 75 turn right onto US 411 North. After about 7.5 miles turn right onto GA 140 East. Continue approximately 3.2 miles to Pine Log Creek Trail System parking area on left.

This is a guideline, not a rule, for drivers but the cost should not be higher unless there are extenuating circumstances.|
This trail opened in November 2007 on 275 acres of protected land in Bartow County. The trail is beautifully designed. The treadway is smooth, and has hardly any rocks.
