Hiked: Laurel Ridge Trail

This weekend we spent some time exploring the trails around our new house. We moved this far out of the city to be closer to the lake and to enjoy all the nature this area offers.

The Laurel Ridge Trail is just located beyond Buford Dam. It's a nice shaded path through the woods, and is perfect for taking the kids. We enjoyed a nice lunch in the picnic area at the trail head. After we ate, we strapped the gals to our backs and we were off!

The hike is about 4 miles long, and is perfect for any hiker. The gals had a blast checking out all of beautiful surroundings. You pass Lake Lanier several times and it made me excited about coming back here in the summer time to swim.

Towards the end, the trail opens up to the Lower Pool of the Dam. If you time it right, you can watch the water from Lake Lanier being release and into the Chattahoochee.

We had a blast and can't wait to come back during warmer weather!

Amelia loved playing in the leaves!
