We stopped here on a whim to stretch our legs after a long haul car ride. We stopped pretty early so we only experienced one other couple and a lady with 3 dogs on the trail. I was nice but nothing to write home about: not the mountainous hike you'd expect.

Allatoona Pass Battlefield Trail

Very limited parking, about 20 spaces so my group was lucky enough to wait only a couple minutes for some spots to clear. The trail surface was packed down dirt and rocks and easily walkable. There were several signs with historical information along the way. The trail was shaded and wide for easy passing. We only saw one path which was directly off the parking lot. We walked straight ahead until the path ended and seemingly turned left to follow a tire-track dirt road so we turned around at that point and walked back to the parking lot. Just before the parking lot there was a monument of stones with more historical information about the area during the Civil War. We climbed the hill behind the parking lot and it's a lovely view of the lake and marina. It was a nice walk on a nice day. I think it was just under 2 miles round trip.
