We will start at the East Loop Trailhead, walking in a counterclockwise direction until we reach the ridge of Pine Mountain. After a side trip to the summit overlook we will continue on to take the West Loop. On the return loop we will take the connector trail to the Alatoona Lake trails. After stopping at Cooper's furnace, we will view the dam and have a lunch or snack from the overlook. Then we will return and complete the East loop and finish the figure 8 back to the trailhead. The total hiking distance is about 8 miles at a moderate pace.
|How to Get There:|
I-75 to Exit 290, east on GA Highway 20, right at traffic light onto GA Spur 20, continue approximately four miles. The East Loop Trailhead access and parking area are on the right, just past Bartow Beach Road.

Pine Mountain is the newest recreation area in the City of Cartersville. The East Loop Trailhead connects the city to Lake Allatoona's shoreline and reaches 1,562 feet above sea level. The rugged and challenging trail development crosses Pine Mountain and Hurricane Hollow, so named by early miners. The land is part of the 13,000 acres that were originally the site of Mark Cooper's iron empire. The new West Loop Trailhead is now open at I-75 Exit 288, at the entrance to Komatsu. The trail is maintained by the City of Cartersville Parks & Recreation Department.
