Please join me for a hike at Pine Mountain Trail, Coopers Furnace Trail, Laurel Ridge Trail , will stop for a great view of the dam at Lake Alatoona - this is a D4 level hike - a bit of a challenge, not for beginners.  Hope we have a beautiful day as the view from the top is fantasic.  There are many ups and down (always feels like more up than down to me).  Hike will start at the parking area at Komatsu Drive in Cartersville.    

Spring is here and hoping to see some color on the trails - tired of the gray, brown, bland winter landscape.  Will take a couple brief water breaks and a slightly extended water/snack break. Not super fast hike.
