Short Paved Loop in Red Top Mountain State Park that is ADA accessible and a nice stroll around the lake. There are a few historic buildings and a cabin from 1869 on the loop. Paved easy route that is good for the whole family. The trail starts at the park office and follows the shore of Lake Allatoona. The trail is ADA accessible for the entire length. Plenty of benches and tables along the route. There is an 1869 Cabin and some other buildings on the loop. They hold events and demonstrations at the various buildings from time to time. It is a nice stroll to just sit on a bench and enjoy the lake.

We stopped here on a whim to stretch our legs after a long haul car ride. We stopped pretty early so we only experienced one other couple and a lady with 3 dogs on the trail. I was nice but nothing to write home about: not the mountainous hike you'd expect.

Small ADA .75 mile Loop paved trail from the visitor center of red top mountain state park. It wanders around the lake and has a small cabin/blacksmith/and a few other small buildings. It is pretty crowded sometimes, but has alot of nice benches and some tables. If you have small kids/elderly/or just want to take a small stroll around the lake it is nice. If you are looking for secluded mountain wilderness this is not a trail I would recommend.
