Lake Russell Recreation Area Trails Professional Review and Guide

"The Lake Russell Recreation Area is a USDA Forest Service facility in the eastern section of the Chattahoochee National Forest. The area contains 100-acre Lake Russell and 3-acre Nancy Town Lake. The facility has a 42-site seasonal campground as well.

The featured hike consists of a portion of the Nancy Town Lake
walking trail and the Sourwood Trail, forming a 3.7-mile lollipop. The official Sourwood Trailhead is in the camping area at the north end of the lake, but the road to it is closed from the end of October to the first of April. The
parking area at the dam on the south end of Nancy Town Lake is open year-round, providing access to the Sourwood Trail."
