July 4th Hike - Homestead Trail at Red Top Mountain 

This is one ultra-scenic hike, winding and meandering along the finger-like contours of the Allatoona shoreline. It’s also the longest trail at Red Top Mountain State Park, offering a beautiful mix of stunning lake views and sun-dappled forest along a relatively moderate loop. The Homestead Trail explores quiet, glassy coves, wide-open views of the lake, and a whole lot of beautiful pine and hardwood forest along the way.

As always, wear comfortable (not new) sturdy shoes and layered clothing. Pack at least 2 bottles of water, snacks and your lunch.   Please, bring a friendly smile, great attitude and an open mind. Get a good restful night's sleep, and eat a healthy breakfast to help sustain your energy.     

We practice responsible hiking. Familiarize yourself with some basic rules and etiquette of hiking, including the Leave No Trace principles ... what you carry in, you carry out, with the exception of your picturesque memories of the trail and of course, any photos you may take.  

We will only caravan due to Covid-19. Plan to drive or make carpool arrangements before the day of the hike.  This hike will also be limited in the number of hikers so we can properly social distance while we are enjoying nature and the clean fresh air.  

You can opt to meet us at the park.  We plan to be there by 9:00a.m.  Please feel free to contact me at 678.231.4973.  It is best to call rather than text the morning of the hike.
