Trail At Lake Lanier

About The Trail: 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 a 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; add another hour if you want to hike the extra section with us. FYI: The park does NOT allow dogs.

Meeting Time/Place: Please meet in front of the bathrooms in the Lower Overlook Park by 10:45am. This is the first parking lot on the left after crossing the dam. FYI, we will leave PROMPTLY at 11:00am.

Directions:www.georgiatrails.com/maps/laurelridge.html

Carpool Options: The parking lot is small and fills up quickly, so please try to carpool. I will run one carpool from the parking lot of Best Buy on Haynes Bridge Rd and Exit 9 off of 400.  I have a white Toyota Sequoia and will meet you in the parking lot on the left hand side of the store. Please be there by 9:50am (we will leave promptly at 10:00am). Please send me an email by Saturday night to let me know you want to carpool with me. FYI: your email gives me a count re how many cars we'll need, but due to the number of emails I typically get, I do not confirm each one individually). BTW, please make sure to bring some water, lunch, and snacks, as well as a towel and shirt change for the ride home. 

See you on the trail!
