    Well I have been to Buford Dam several times and it is always a beautiful drive through Lake Lanier Islands. The skies were blue and the weather was cooler. I went with my husband for the first time and he was stunned at all this area had to offer as far as parks, trails, fishing and camping. There was no one there over the weekend so I am guessing it is off season now. A perfect time to explore by yourself.

    It was a cold windy day for a hike. I explored all of the parks and trails that were located along the Buford Dam highway. Burford Dam Trail consisted of crossing a large greenspace are from the paarking lot to a Steel Bridge that over looked the dam. Today was a big day for fishing along the bank of the river. After crossing the steel bridge you walk along a paved path to a wooded boardwalk that intersected with Lauren Ridge Trail with was a 3.8 mile trail in and out.
