What we're about

This group was founded Mar 3, 2019 to encourage people to get out and start hiking! We keep it simple- You just show up and have fun on day hikes with us. No backpacks, overnight camping experience or training is needed. We schedule simple but great 4 to 9 mile hikes on Georgia nature trails and urban paths. Come and enjoy the outdoors, get some fresh air, stay in shape and meet other hikers.

Laurel Ridge Trail - Buford GA Dam Park - 4 miles

Needs a location

This is a great wooded path trail in Buford GA with some steep elevations and some water views. Mileage is about 4. See photos and link below for more detail. There are some steep ups and downs so please judge if your fitness level will allow you to do this moderate level 4 mile hike. Boots and hiking poles will be helpful as there are slippery rocks and some roots on the well marked trail. I hiked this trail in tennis shoes and with no poles my first time- beginners are welcome to attend!

The hike will start from the meeting place at 9am. We will sign in, including a waiver and start promptly at 9 am. Per the park rules - No dogs on this hike. There is no parking fee.

We will meet outside the restrooms in the Lower Overlook Road trailhead. See Phots for details.

Below is a helpful link that will provide some information about the trail itself.
