Took a group of Teen girls hiking. They loved the beauty of the trail, nice places to relax and enjoy the beauty of nature, very calming.

Me dad and me always go in the hike just for a good time, or to condition ourselves for sports. Even if you aren't the person who doesn't like to hike, you can in the middle of the trail and go to the "beach" and hangout in the water.

The Laurel Ridge Trail is a short, four or so mile loop trail in Buford, Georgia that winds around the area close to the Buford Dam on Lake Sidney Lanier. The trail is a moderately strenuous path which features fantastic views of the lake, plenty of interesting footpaths and a variety of scenic forest surroundings.

My daughter, a friend and I completed the loop in about two and a half hours with a short break midway through to enjoy lunch under one of the many covered pavilions. Facilities included bathrooms, picnic tables, plenty of benches and a handful of water fountains along the way.

While not your typical mountainous trail, the walk here was pleasant, and I'd recommend it to anyone in the area looking for an afternoon in the woods.

New to trail running! This was a perfect start. Picturesque and peacful especially for this NY boy!

I wouldnt consider this a hike, however that is subjective depending on your fitness level. It was very scenic and beautiful. However we did get lost off the trails, (of course not the trails fault) and we ended up on Bowman Trail. Both trails were very nice and clean. Trafficking is pretty slim, at least on the day we went. All in all, it was real nice!

It was a very nice trail with some challenging hills. The only thing I didn't like was that when you start getting to the recreation areas, the trail is not very well marked, and it is easy to get confused about where to go.
