Join us for a morning walk along Lake Lanier. The Little Ridge Trail is comprised of several paths which average about 2 miles of trail.  The trail meanders along shoreline of Lake Lanier. It is a an easy trail with little elevation change and very scenic. The trail is approximately 2 miles so we'll walk it twice, reversing directions the second time and picking up a little more distance crossing the island bridge if the water is low enough.

Dogs are welcome. The trail is used by persons walking their dog(s) quite often, so please only bring dogs that are well behaved amongst other dogs.

 We will begin atthe trail head which is clearly marked. As you travel through the parking lot the trail head will be at the end on the right, before the parking lot turns left. If you reach the boat ramp, you turned left. 

Required Items to Bring:


dog supplies (water, bags for clean up, etc.)

Recommended Items to Bring:
Use our Event Checklists to make sure you have everything you need.
