This trail is named after one of several homesteads which were once located along it. It begins at the front porch of the Visitor Center and crosses some of the most beautiful portions of the park, including part of the shore of Lake Allatoona. It is a 5.5 mile loop, and the surface is compacted soil.
After the hike we can go swimming. For more information, go to http://gastateparks.org/RedTopMountain.
I do not have any pictures, but you can do a Google search and you will see how beautiful it is.
|How to Get There:|
The park is located north of Atlanta, 1.5 miles east of I-75 exit #285. The park office is on the left side of Red Top Mountain Road, a few yards after passing the beginning of Marina Road to your left.
