Trail At Lake Lanier

The Laurel Ridge Trail is one of the prettiest trails around!  It's 3.8 miles of easy hiking trails and offers great views of a section of the lake as well as the river and Buford Dam. 

It's a loop trail that is mostly flat, and the parking lot is right near the bridge near the dam so it will enable those who want to hike more than the 3.8 mile loop trail to add a couple of more miles. Rating = easy; time for the loop trail = approx 90 minutes. FYI: The park does NOT allow dogs.

There is free parking right there at the Lower Overlook Park.  Meet us in front of the bathrooms at 11:15.  We will leave PROMPTLY at 11:30.

See you on the trail!

    Do we need to bring bathing suits too? Would be fun to swim after the hike. My dogs (I have 2 Golden's) love hiking and love swimming in the lake. See you all then!
