This is just a few hundred feet after the trail entrance and is where the Wed/Sat directional split for bikes comes into play. On Wed, go right. On Sat, go left.

Panorama from the overlook on an overcast day. Lake Allatoona is on the left. The city of Cartersville on the right, and Kennesaw Mountain can often be seen off to the middle left.

The intersection of the East & West Loops. Stay left to continue up to the "David G. Archer Overlook" as shown on the sign. When descending back to here, be sure to stay to the right to remain on the East Loop.

This is where you have the option to continue up to the overlook (recommended!). If you choose not to go on up, you'll begin to descend in front of where you see the "1377 elev" sign in this picture.

Entrance to the trail. Hang a right after this sign to get on the East Loop. It'll be bidirectional for 200-300 feet, then it will split again.
