This scenic trail is a loop that winds along the banks of Lake Allatoona through a historic area that once was home to an active iron mining community in the mid 1800s. Along the way we will have the opportunity to observe both native wildlife and a profusion of native plants. The trail has a gravel surface and is 3.4 miles long.

We will meet at the park office and then drive a short distance to the trailhead.
