Pine Mountain, East Cartersville, Georgia

May 13, 2009 at 6:48 am 5 comments

I made this hike on Saturday May 9, 2009. It was a planned hike sponsored by Cartersville-Bartow County CVB, Cartersville Parks & Rec. and Swheat Market. We were joined by authors Ren & Helen Davis of ‘Best Hikes Near Atlanta’. The hike was featuring not only the view from the top but the blooming Mountain Laurel. We reached the summit following the East Loop trail. Total distance was approx. 3.1 miles and an elevation change of 680 ft. There is a concrete post listing an elevation of 1562 ft. at the summit. The group consisted of 17 people from ages 4yr. to 70’s. I was the only one with a cheeseburger so of course there were many questions. I was also able to find a few geocaches along the way along with a benchmark at the summit. I may have managed to add a few more cheeseburger consumers to the cause. Another nice added feature is the placement of emergency phones on the trail. This is the first time I have seen that.

    Hares Ear,

    Nice post and good work spreading the Summit Cheeseburger message. I’m thinking that now the “Best Hikes Near Atlanta” involve a Cheeseburger.

    This was a great hike. The Pine Mountain Recreation Area in Cartersville is accessible from EAST I-75 Exit 290, GA 20 east to Spur 20; and WEST I-75 Exit 288, go east to deadend, then right to trailhead parking. The summit is worthy of many cheeseburgers! Y’all come see us.
