Great hike, well maintained and marked, BUT..it is not 5.2 miles out and back. Just look at the map I posted and do the math. It is almost 4 miles one way, depending on which path you take. I started on the trailhead off of Red Top Mtn Rd and took the Yellow path, Red path, then Yellow until the end. On the way back I took the Blue path and then stayed on the Yellow, a little shorter, but close to 8 miles round trip. I saw one family and one couple with a dog. This I liked! Plenty of up and down, and the advanced Red path will give you an extra work out. The Yellow path is definitely moderate, and I'd say a few spots difficult. I did NOT like the fact that at least 1/3 of the Yellow path is behind a McMansion neighborhood, and when you are in one spot, you are literally in someone's back yard. It is weird to say the least. They are still building in this area, and the neighborhood kind of ruins this part of the trail. I hiked this for the first time in the middle of winter, so I imagine in the Spring and Summer you will not be able to see these 'homes' all that well. Hopefully. All in all, great hike and workout! Just be prepared for longer than 5 miles if you plan on going end to end and back (round trip). Beautiful views of the damn at Lake Allatoona and the lake itself.

Why is this listed separately from the Pine Mtn Recreation Area Loop? They appear to be the exact same trail...?

Our puppy loved it! It's a pretty trail. We only hiked the loop and didn't go to the summit but we'll be hiking this again I'm sure. After hiking extensively in Utah and being altitude-sensitive, this was nice and not hard. Loved that the altitude is not high so we were having no problem keeping a nice brisk pace. It's a very lovely trail with friendly hikers.
