Join Bruce for this nice workout on the Eagle Scout trail that has overlooks of Allatoona Dam and its sister park across the Etowah River-Cooper Furnace. This trail has a good moderate climb of several hundred feet from its start at 750’ to the 1354’ summit of Vinyard Mountain. Then we’ll walk the easier ‘bunny’ trail after coming down off the summit around the base of the mountain to the ‘DAM’ overlook on Lake Allatoona, for extra workout value.
