    Mike Nichols updated Pine Mountain Trail and Saw Tooth Trail loop...8 miles

    I have not hiked THIS Pine Mountain Trail. But just in case there are some confused readers (especially when you read the "Getting There" information which starts from Warm Springs."

    To clarify: THIS Pine Mountain Trail is near Cartersville, which is about as far a NW suburb of Atlanta as you can get before you get into "North Georgia." In fact many people in the Atlanta area (where I live) do not consider Cartersville a suburb of Atlanta at all.

    Where it gets confusing is reading "Directions from Warm Springs"--why that is posted here I do not know. Warm Springs is the location of the "Little White House" Where FDR went for peace and rest. Warm Springs is very near the small town of Pine Mountain, which is very close to Columbus...in any case Pine Mountain, GA is over 100 miles south of Cartersville!!

    That said, GO to Pine Mountain, check out FDR State Park, and hike some or all of the Pine Mountain Trail, which is 26 miles from one end to the other. The Pine Mountain Trail Association has a wealth of information about the trail. It is an exceptional backpacking trail--this link, however, is not it.
