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 on the adjoining trail.
Rating = easy; time for the loop trail = approx 90 minutes; add another 90 minutes 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.
Carpool Options: The parking lot is small and fills up quickly, so please try to carpool. I will run one carpool from the Best Buy in Alpharetta (just off exit 9 on 400). Please meet to the left of the store by 10am; we'll meet by 10:10. FYI, I have a white Toyota Sequoia.
See you on the trail!
