Easy, wide trail with gravel. Goes along Allatoona Lake for most of the way. Quiet and pretty peaceful. Even saw a couple of deer! Really great day spent here!

This trail is great. Gorgeous views. Very well marked. The trail is all gravel except for a couple of short, wood bridges, so if you have a stroller, make sure it is made for off-roading.

Great beginners hike or a hike with your dog. Loved it. Had quite a few beautiful lake front spots to let your dogs loose and have a blast.

Did something crazy and hiked every trail at Red Top one Sunday. This review will cover the entire experience. Well marked, nicely maintained, and surprisingly quiet considering how popular it is. The views were gorgeous and there is enough of a variety in the trails to really give you a workout. Great place to train for more strenuous hikes and events.

First time on this trail. It was clean and well-marked throughout. Views of the lake almost the entire time - lots of little paths off the main walk that can take you closer to the water. Beautiful in spring time! Trail begins down off to the left of the parking lot.

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!

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. ✌️

We had our jogging stroller-trail was perfect! Appropriately challenging for the family but it wasn’t impossible to get my jogging stroller through. We had a wonderful time with the 3 kids and can’t wait to go back.

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.
