hi I love this Trail there's actually 3 at Lake Russell. As far as possible poison oak, poison ivy, it appears we're in the National Forest; remember to learn how to use a compass possibly an orienteering one and map...so the trail marks won't bother you. GPS should never replace these. Just a few recommendations for casual hikers. best to stick to Buford dam, Roswell walkways. At one time they were considering closing the lake, this area is beautiful, and there are no power boats allowed. if you've ever camped here, it's a hidden gem (Better than Dockery Lake) and I'm glad it's here. It keeps the area less congested. I'm training for (SALT). Then the AT. Please remembet Leave no Trace, and thank you to the MGMT for keeping this location open.
