This popular park on 12,000-acre Lake Allatoona is ideal for swimming, boating and fishing. Visitors can bring their own boats or rent from nearby Park Marine. Twelve miles of hiking trails wind through the park, providing opportunities for exercise or relaxation. The Iron Hill Trail is perfect for beginning mountain bikers. Visitors can explore a reconstructed 1860s homesite, including a log cabin and blacksmith shop. The park's music series and homestead events are held at this historic cabin. Named for the soils rich red color caused by high iron-ore content, Red Top Mountain was once an important iron mining area.

Nice little easy hike with mild hills and good views of the lake. Follows the lake almost the entire trail. We stopped for lunch at the tip of the peninsula. The picnic tables could use some work and the trail could be marked a little better, but I’m definitely going to come back at some point. I would like to bring my bike next time!

always a wonderful visit

Beautiful trail

Great trail. Wide and mostly flat. Stroller accessible. Shaded year-round.

First time here and I’d say this is overall a moderate to easy trail. It’s very dog and kid friendly. There are multiple path options and trails are clear and well marked. There were bathrooms available at the start and at about the 4 mile mark at the visitors center (assuming you follow this map). The one thing worth noting is that there was no “wow” view, no massive visual award for trekking here. The lake had receded greatly when we visited. No complaints though. Enjoy!

Loved this hike! Went after the hurricane, some damage but, clean up was happening. Very few other hikers out. Was nice to sit on a log for a snack and watch the deer go by.

I would probably rate this trail as easy. Short little afternoon hike with some awesome views of the trees changing colors and of Lake Allatoona! We posted about this hike on our Instagram page @pathsandpourovers if you'd like to check it out!

Cold day but still rewarding with some decent views of the lake. A majority of the leaves have fallen so foliage is very limited.

Posted a picture that was in the October issue of BackPacker Magazine as one of the most colorful hikes in Georgia. ✌️
