Join us as we explore the Laurel Ridge Trail. The trail meanders through both Forsyth and Gwinett, as well as the Chattahoochee and Lake Lanier. It is a very scenic hike that includes wooded areas as well as water views. 

The trail has several elevation changes, none are extreme. We will be moving at a moderate pace throughout.

We will meet in the parking lot at the Lower Overlook park and begin hiking at 4:00 pm. We will take the trail across Buford dam rd and toward the Chattahoochee to start. We will be stopping briefly at scenic areas to enjoy the view.  

We wil be hiking clockwise - we start on the Lanier side and finish on the Hooch side.   

Dogs are not permitted per Lake Lanier Authority (service dogs are allowed most places, no proof necessary).  

We will begin the hike on time.
