If you want a challenging hike or moderate hike the trails are perfect. Nice lookout area. It is rocky and has some steep sections. Can get busy. Very close to Red top Mountain State Park.

Pine Mountain is one of the best places to hike in Cartersville. Recently expanded parking at the Main Street trailhead was a huge help. It's a challenging hike, but a lot of fun!!
