Fort Mountain derives its name from an ancient 855-foot-long rock wall which stands on the highest point of the mountain. The mysterious wall is thought to have been built by Indians as fortification against other more hostile Indians or for ancient ceremonies. Situated in the Chattahoochee National Forest close to the Cohutta Wilderness area, this park offers a variety of outdoor activities. Hikers, mountain bikers and horseback riders will find some of the most beautiful trails in northern Georgia. Most wind through hardwood forest and blueberry thickets, occasionally crossing streams and providing spectacular vistas. During the summer, children will enjoy the sand beach located on a clear mountain lake, as well as miniature golf and pedal boat rental.

I had a blast running this trail. The start is on down the road from the Outpost. One of the Rangers gave me a map and told me where to go. They said it is a 5 hour hike but I ran it in 1.5 hours. The trail was very well marked so I had no trouble staying on track. There are no restrooms at the parking for the trail so make sure you get that done before hand. It is a State Park so if you don't have a parking pass there will be a parking fee.

probably enjoyed this Trail more than any this year

Nice hike with lots of small ups and down over 8 miles. Several nice spots to lookout and nice stream views.

Great trail very flat. Goes around the 17 acre lake in the park!

This is a great trail! but even though it’s short i might say it could be called moderate and not easy
