If you hike this is just a couple exits south of hwy 20 on 75. Awesome view of lake at top. Cartersville has about anything to eat.

The entire lake, dam, most campgrounds and a lot of land are Corps of Engineering property. Corps of Engineer land is not illegal to travel on unless marked as such. If you were on Lower Sweetwater you were on Corps land. I am always careful not to wheel illegally. As long as you don't get off the trail where its clearly posted by private owners you are fine. The red stripes are Corps boundary markers between public and private land. I have never seen any info deeming it illegal to enter. You cannot go around any barriers or gates across trails or roads.
Maybe there are now, its been awhile since I went, but there were no signs at the lake prohibiting entry. Certain times of the year the water is up to the edge of the woods.
Please let me know if you have other info of it being illegal cause I definitely would want to know.

Thanks y'all.

If you take the Hardin Bridge Rd part it goes directly to the lake with a couple other offshoot trails. That's the part we were on last.

Ive not seen this map. Its cool. Thank you.
Happy Jeepin

Yep, there was a left turn at the beginning that takes you over to the hills. We took this road down and the hills back.
