Nestled along upland slopes and wetlands of the Appalachian foothills adjacent to Lake Lanier’s Buford Dam, Laurel Ridge Trail offers a glimpse of the landscape before the massive lake was completed by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers in 1957. Featuring more than 700 miles of shoreline, the multipurpose lake offers access to parks, picnic areas, and boating facilities. From the Lower Overlook Park parking area, follow the concrete path behind the comfort station, descending a shallow ravine before climbing up to Buford Dam Road.
