Sat, Mar 5 2022 - Kennesaw Mountain Noses Creek Plus (View Original Event Details)|
The weather was windy and cloudy as we started. The parking lot was full by 8:45. One member had to wait for a parking space. Once we started hiking and the sun came out, we quicky delayered. Having several members that had never hiked the KMNBP Central Trail, I have included along with the zoomed in GPS trace of where we hiked, and elevation graphed; a GPS trace zoomed out showing what part of the park we hike in relation to the whole park.
We headed down Noses Creek Trail, turned right on Hardage Trail, and crossed Whitlock Ave. We turned around at the intersection of the John Ward Connector Trail and Cease Fire Trail. Heading back, we followed the Noses Creek to The new Salem Church Trail, took the Camp Brumby Trail to the Pigeon Hill Cutoff Trail back to the parking lot. After passing new Salem Church we saw the flags the Park Service had put out with the new route of the New Salem Church Trail and saw them again on the Pigeon Hill Cutoff Trails, see pictures.
A special thanks to Jennifer for joining us on her third hike, Eileen on his seventh hike, and DMuse for her eighth hike.
