Iron Hill Trail is a Moderate four-mile loop in Red Top Mountain State Park. Parking for the trail is located off Red Top Mountain Road, about 1/2 mile past the campground, on the right.
This is a gravel trail and is open for the enjoyment of both hikers and bikers, in spite of the fact that off-road bicyclists and hikers seem to be mortal enemies who do not enjoy one another.
Bikers are expected to avoid contact with peaceful hikers. Hikers are asked to dodge bikers.
If all married couples can get along, so can bikers and hikers!
Iron Hill Trail meanders along the banks of Lake Allatoona through an historic area where an active iron mining community was located in the 1800s.
While taking this trail, you will enjoy solitude and a variety of native plants and wildlife. If everyone tries to get along, and the plants don’t go rogue.
This Moderate rated trail should not be difficult for hikers and/or bikers in relatively good physical shape. Please expect moderate changes in elevation.
Dogs are allowed on the trail, but they must be leashed at all times.
