Those of you who have never been to the Pine Log Trail are in for a treat!  This ia one of the prettiest areas I've hiked, with plenty of free parking, lots of elevation changes, beautiful views, and a quarry pond with interesting rock outcroppings to climb on for photos!

The trail features a 4.7 mile path crossing seven rustic footbridges over Pine Log Creek. From two overlooks, hikers can view Pine Log Mountain - one of the highest elevations in Bartow County's Appalachian foothills - and the site of the Pine Log Cherokee Indian Village. The trail system includes two loops east and west and is rated moderate. Although some of the terrain is rugged there is only one significant climb, with an elevation gain of about 420 feet. The eastern loop takes hikers by an early CCC quarry pond for picturesque views.

For those who would like to join us, we'll be stopping in Cartersville for lunch on the way home at SWheat Market Deli - - a fabulous little restaurant that features a variety of organic meals (with vegetarian options) that have garnered a 5-star rating from Yelp.  Check out the deli menu and location at

We will limit the number of people with dogs to 3.  If you see three people already registered with dogs, please do not add yours.  All dogs should be kept on leash for the safety of others on the trail.
