Cloudland Canyon Connector Trail

This trail, built on reclaimed mining property at the top of Lookout Mountain, connects the privately owned Lula Lake Land Trust with Georgia’s spectacular Cloudland Canyon State Park.

The trail meanders up and down the ridges and creek gorges that cross-cut the mountain plateau.

8.7 miles of trail, on the Longbranch and Five Points Recreation Area sections, are currently open to equestrians.

Two trailheads, on Ascolon Rd. and Nick-a-jack Rd., can accommodate horse trailers.

$5 Georgia State Parks parking fee applies.
