Let’s hike the Homestead trail at Red Top Mountain State Park. This moderate paced hike will cover approximately 5.75 miles in about 2.5 hours. Although the hiking is not difficult, our itinerary will include enough short climbs that beginners should be cautioned.
Software Glitch: If the system allows more participants than the stated event maximum to be registered, those over the limit will be moved to the wait list. Any participants who are cleared from the wait list will be cleared in the order they originally registered.
We will meet at the Park Offices located at 50 Lodge Road, Cartersville, GA. As this is a State Park, there is a cost of $5 or use of an annual State Park parking pass.
For our hike, we will begin with a short out and back on the White Tail trail which reaches a point with great views of Lake Allatoona. Next we will head toward the Homestead trail and complete the 3 mile loop. While hiking the loop, we will stop briefly at two additional lake views. Utilizing the Homestead and Sweet Gum trails we will return to the Park office parking lot.
Red Top Mountain State Park is located on what was once a thriving Iron Ore Mining operation which operated prior to the Civil War.
