This trail begins at the Visitor Center and is of moderate difficulty. The first section of the trail is a 1 mile section that crosses Lodge Road. Once across the road the trail forms a 3 ½ mile loop that follows along the shores of Lake Allatoona for about half of its length. Overall this trail will take us through forest, across fields, and along the shores of the lake. We will also pass by the chimney of an old homestead home. This hike offers the widest diversity and nicest scenery of all the trails in Red Top. The full trip, leaving from and returning to the Visitors Center, puts the total walking distance of this hike at about 4½ miles.
