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, wide, well maintained trail. There are benches and picnic areas along the way and if you're so inclined there's a number of places you can easily get to the lake and take a dip. It's a pretty easy flat trail and there are lots of side trails that look interesting to explore.

Nice, wide, well maintained (gravel and pine straw) trail that winds its way by the coves on Lake Allatoona. 1 to 5 mile hike. I saw multiple wildflowers. Camping sites nearby. Kayaking.
