Note: This is an "EXPLORATORY" trip. This means that there are parts of this trip, or perhaps the whole trip, that is new to your Trip Leader(s). However, they are confident that this will not be an issue.
This note is here so that you can make an informed decision. When a Trip Leader isn't personally familiar with a trip, there is an increased chance of things not going as planned and you need to be prepared. The Trip Leader may have additional details in the itinerary.

This beautiful hiking spot at Pine Mountain in Cartersville has a seasoned trail system. The land is part of 13,000 acres that was the original site of Mark Anthony Cooper's Iron Empire. We’ll meet and start from the West Loop parking lot, and will cover all of the trails including West and East Loop Trails, connecting trail to Cooper's Furnace. Please only register if you are comfortable with D4 hiking and steep climbing. We’ll go at a moderate pace of 3 mph, Parking is free, but there is no restroom at the parking lot. We can use store restrooms from the same exit off I-75 before we meet. Restrooms are available at Cooper's Furnace picnic area, or we can use many trees and bushes. If your experience is not from the club, please email Trip Leade, or you will be moved to the waiting list for the safety of everyone. We encourage our members to actively participate with joyful experience, and most importantly, to stay healthy and safe at the end of our events.
