This popular park on 12,000-acre Lake Allatoona is ideal for swimming, boating and fishing. Visitors can bring their own boats or rent from nearby Park Marine. Twelve miles of hiking trails wind through the park, providing opportunities for exercise or relaxation. The Iron Hill Trail is perfect for beginning mountain bikers. Visitors can explore a reconstructed 1860s homesite, including a log cabin and blacksmith shop. The park's music series and homestead events are held at this historic cabin. Named for the soils rich red color caused by high iron-ore content, Red Top Mountain was once an important iron mining area.

It was great hiking. Very easy and wide enough to enjoy different activities. Not crowded, so it is definitely good for family.

Beautiful trail! My husband and I hiked it(walking briskly) in an hour. Going to try the Homestead trail next which is twice as long. Pretty easy hike with the exception of some moderately steep hills to climb. Great workout!

Hiked this trail for the first time and really enjoyed the lake views and wide trail path. I wish the side trails were marked so we could try a new path without fear of taking a wrong turn. Poorly marked for a fee pay GA state park.

Just a great trail worth the parking fee. Awesome views of the lake with a great work out.

Good trail. Wide and well maintained. Several trails off of the main trail to explore. Good lake views. My dogs love it here.

This is a great trail! It's part of a bigger campground that has been closed for sometime. Many use the trail for Mountain Bikes it's a wide main trail with several smaller trails. Great trail for your dogs please respect other hikers and bikers keep pets on a leash and please pick up after your dog. This trail and campground will soon be under stewardship of 3 Boy Scout Districts Appalachian Trail, Foothills, Silver Comet the goal is to preserve and maintaining the trail and show the beauty of Red Top Mountain State Park.
