Iron Hill Trail has lots of water views of Lake Allatoona - very flat trail, couple little bumps but virtually no elevation - we will begin our hike from the Iron Hill Trailhead at Red Top Mountain State Park   Great for hikers that don't like hills (me). This will be a slower paced hike, leisurely.  Great for those new to the AOC and/or new to hiking. 

Restrooms are available at the visitor's center which you will pass on your way to the Iron Hill Trailhead parking lot.  

$5.00 fee for parking pass unless you have an annual GA State Parks pass which is easiest if you purchase in advance online - click link below

Because of a glitch in the registration process, we've run into the problem of having too many members added to the active list above the maximum limit of 10.  Please be aware that we will be moving members above 10 registrants to the waiting list in the order of their registration times.  People will then be added to the active list as we have withdrawals.

good hiking boots/shoes
GA State Parks pass (daily or annual see above and link for details)
