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 offers nice views of the dam, the river, and Lake Lanier, so you may want to bring your camera. A mile and a quarter before the end of the trail there is a public beach on Lake Lanier, where we will swim and have a snack There is a restroom there for you to change in and out of your swimsuit if you would like to. We will then walk back to our cars.
|How to Get There:|
