This trail was well maintained and the people at the ranger station were helpful and friendly. But the trail was a little monotonous. I will probably not return for this one.

Short trail. Great for families with small kids. Don't miss the two forts on the hill tops on either side of the railroad cut.

Great hike for a active rest day. The trails are mostly flat compared to other trails on the area.

Nice hike. Parking lot can get crowded around 5 and on weekends in the warmer months. The switchbacks and steep at time grades makes for a great cardio workout. Not recommended for a trail run because there are so many jagged rocks and all tree stumps in the trail.

Great hike up the mountain. Absolutely stunning views when you get to the summit. It was a very busy trail which gets quite narrow in some places which makes navigating it a bit difficult particularly with a dog. That would be the only thing keeping this from a 5 star rating. View at the top is 5 star caliber. Would definitely hike this again in the middle of the week so it wasn't so crowded on the trail.

Very nice hike not to far outside of Atlanta. I wanted to go on a hike and didn't have all day to drive and hike. I went on the west loop to the summit. The west loop was mainly forest. The summit had a good view of Lake Allatoona and surrounding mountains. Overall a nice hike for not too far outside of Atlanta.

Pine Mountain Trail is in the FDR State park. By using connecting side trails you can hike about 20-25 miles. There are some short climbs. The trail is worth hiking, especially in the late fall.

Took my two pups with me and they practically pulled me up this mountain. Started at one end of the loop, summited, and ended with the other half of the loop. Great exercise! Such a gorgeous panorama at the top overlooking Lake Allatoona.
