Pine Mountain Recreation Area
Update: Mayor Matt's Hike on Saturday, March 14th has been changed from 10:00am to 11:00am (meet at the trailhead at 10:45).

There are two loops connecting Pine Mountain - the East Loop and the West Loop. This is a rugged and challenging hike that reaches 1,562 feet above sea level. Once you reach the top of this mountain you will be at the highest point in the City of Cartersville.

This land is part of 13,000 acres that was the original site of Mark Anthony Cooper's Iron Empire.

Pine Mountain Recreation Area now includes a connector to the US Army Corps of Engineers Cooper's Furnace Trail.

The trail is open daily for hiking. Mountain biking is allowed on Wednesday and Saturday on the East Loop only. Bikers must wear a helmet and follow the color-directional signs for those days.

East Loop Directions: I-75 to Exit 290, east on GA Highway 20, right at traffic light onto GA Spur 20, continue approximately four miles. The East Loop Trailhead access and parking area are on the right, just past Bartow Beach Road.

West Loop Directions: I-75 Exit 288, east on Main Street, at the end of Main Street turn right and the West Loop Trailhead access and parking area is on the left.
