I have always enjoyed this trail, especially, when it is cooler. It does have some steeper sections.

I started at the west part of the trail and took the blue blazed trail to connect with the red blaze trail to the top then back down the red blazed trail to connect with the yellow which meets back up with the blue blaze trail at the parking area. It was about 1.6 miles to summit and a steep climb the entire time. Great work out but the views weren’t that great. There may be better views if I would have continued again there is 5.6 miles of trail and I didn’t do 4 of them. But it was a great short work out.

Nice trail, very little traffic, good bit of up and down, nothing technical.

The yellow trail is pretty intense. Though there are plenty of trees down along the path, it's worth every bit. There will be a next time.

Did this back in Oct 2016 on the return to Atlanta after attending the air show in Rome, GA. I would rate it as a D2. Other than the climb to the top of the mountain, it was relatively flat and not too challenging. The 600' climb up the mountain would be around a D3, similar to a climb up Stone Mountain. Otherwise, a nice rolling hike along the shore of the lake most of the time.
