I like the civil was history but the trail was very badly marked but still a nice walk in the woods and good views of the lake
very easy walk with lots of lake views
Trails aren't the clearest and we took a couple wrong turns, but none are too long so it's easy to turn around. Great scenery with a unique history
Very limited parking, about 20 spaces so my group was lucky enough to wait only a couple minutes for some spots to clear. The trail surface was packed down dirt and rocks and easily walkable. There were several signs with historical information along the way. The trail was shaded and wide for easy passing. We only saw one path which was directly off the parking lot. We walked straight ahead until the path ended and seemingly turned left to follow a tire-track dirt road so we turned around at that point and walked back to the parking lot. Just before the parking lot there was a monument of stones with more historical information about the area during the Civil War. We climbed the hill behind the parking lot and it's a lovely view of the lake and marina. It was a nice walk on a nice day. I think it was just under 2 miles round trip.
Good trail for short dog walks
Short trail. Great for families with small kids. Don't miss the two forts on the hill tops on either side of the railroad cut.
As everyone has said, great place to hike with dogs. Plenty of markers around to explain the history behind this great location. If you are into history - this is a must go!
Short trail with outstanding historical markers along the way.
Very short trail, but has a nice historical factor with the two forts on top of the rail road cut. Read the history on the battle of Altoona pass to appreciate.
This leads you to a nice quiet beach on Allatoona. Bring swim shoes because it is a little rocky getting in. The hike itself came with a nice little history lesson at first, on small displays. The rest of the hike was uneventful until the beach. It was a nice way to get a good shaded walk in, close to home. I took four children from ages 11 to 2.
