We will walk some distance on the Cooper Branch and Cooper Furnace trails and then take a back trail to the summit of Pine Mountain. After a brief stop to admire the view we will return to our cars via the East Loop of Cartersville's Pine Mountain Trail, and a connector trail that leads back to the Allatoona Lake area, for a total walking distance of about 5 miles and an ascent of about 800 ft.
|How to Get There:|
From Atlanta go to I-75 Exit 290, take a right onto GA 20 East then an immediate right onto Spur 20. Continue about 3.5 miles. Trailhead will be on your right. If you reach the end of the road you went about 1 mile too far.
