A Mysterious Woodland Trail In Georgia Will Take You To Original Homestead Ruins
Within Red Top Mountain State Park, there is a beautiful woodland trail that wanders around in a loop along north Lake Allatoona. This wonderful hike offers a glimpse into nature that is filled with towering trees, wildflowers in bloom, and so much more. But what’s even cooler is that this trail gets its name, Homestead Trail, from the ruins of an old cabin that once existed in the area. All that’s left of the homestead is a chimney and concrete drive, and yet, the ruins of what once was adds a bit of mystery and history to the hike.
During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.
