Pine Mountain is a recreation area in the City of Cartersville. The East Loop Trailhead connects the city to Lake Allatoona's shoreline and reaches 1,562 feet above sea level. The rugged and challenging trail development crosses Pine Mountain and Hurricane Hollow, so named by early miners. The land is part of the 13,000 acres that were originally the site of Mark Cooper's iron empire. The  West Loop Trailhead is located at I-75 Exit 288, at the entrance to Komatsu. The trail is maintained by the City of Cartersville Parks & Recreation Department.
