Red Top Mountain State Park: Homestead and Sweetgum Trails Professional Review and Guide

"Nestled on a 1,950-acre Allatoona Lake peninsula, Red Top Mountain is among Georgia’s most popular state parks. Centuries ago these hills were home to Paleo-Indians who built mysterious mounds, which are now preserved at nearby Etowah Mounds State Historic Site.

After the Cherokee removal on the Trail of Tears in the 1830s, the hills were mined for their rich iron ore. The mines were destroyed during the Civil War, but remnants may still be seen at nearby Cooper Furnace Park."
