We will walk the Laurel Ridge Trail in the counterclockwise direction, with a side trip to the bottom of the dam and a pedestrian bridge over the Chattahoochee, for a total distance of a little over 4 miles. This trail has plenty of shade and offers nice views of the dam, the river, and Lake Lanier, so you may want to bring your camera. Optional: after the hike we will drive one mile to West Bank Park and enjoy the beach and a picnic lunch.
NOTE: There is no lifeguard on duty, so swim at own risk.
|How to Get There:|
|Event Directions:||Buford, GA 9:00 am at the Lower Overlook parking lot. From the Park and Ride go north on I 85, and take the I 985 exit. Continue a little under 4 miles on I 985 until Exit 4. At the top of the ramp take a left onto SR 20. Proceed about 5.5 miles on SR 20 and take a right onto Suwanee Dam Road, which dead ends after 2.2 miles when it reaches Buford Dam Road. Take a left onto Buford Dam Road, and proceed 1 mile. The Lower Overlook parking will be on your right. If you reach Buford Dam you went too far.|
