Red Top Mountain State Park: Iron Hill Multiuse Trail Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"This area, in the southern portion of the park, was originally developed as a picnic area with a boating access road. The site has been converted for use as a hiking and mountain-biking trail. The trail gets its name from the nineteenth-century iron mining operations that were carried out in this area.

In 1864 Union troops destroyed the mines and blast furnaces used to process the iron ore into metal for the Confederate army. The Cooper Furnace Day Use Area, near Allatoona Dam, preserves a stone blast furnace built in the 1830s."
