Write Up:

We had 12 adventurous hikers for our hike at Hyde Farm.  We used a combination of established trails, unofficial trails and bushwhacking to cover nearly 5 miles at Hyde Farm.  We first visited the Powers family cemetery where nearly 20 members of the Powers/ Martin family (think Powers Ferry) are buried.  Next we made our way to Mulberry Creek which is a beautiful woodlands stream that would remind you of some streams in north Georgia.  We spent a little time bushwhacking and had some wet trail conditions to contend with.  We made our way to Morgan Falls dam which had multiple gates open to spill the excess water from all of our recent rains.  Then it was one last climb to reach our cars.

A special welcome to Gigi who was on her 5th AOC event.  Gigi, we look forward to seeing you on future AOC events. ~ Holt
