This is Carol's second hike as a PTL and she helped write parts of the event description.
Come join us as we hike around one of the hidden gems just minutes from I-285. The trail ranges from easy along the river to moderate as we take some steep climbs through the forest. It’s strenuous enough in places to enable us to have a good workout as we wind our way around the trails. With spring in the air, the views of the Chattahoochee should be breathtaking! Plus, the bamboo forest and bluffs are the perfect reward to a good hike.
We're going to start off by going uphill toward the Indian Trail Parking lot. We will continue hiking trails toward the river which will eventually lead us to the Bamboo forest. Beyond the Bamboo forest is rock which we can climb to catch a view of the river. Then we will return and walk up our 2nd hill of the day towards the other overlook where we will spend a few moments. Climbing a few stairs will lead us back on the trail and we continue hiking downward to the river. En route to our cars we will take a short detour towards the cave, before completing the last leg of our hike.
This is a moderately paced hike with quite a few rest breaks. This hike will have cover all the good spots at East Palisades so, if you've never been here, this is your chance.
Please carry adequate water to stay hydrated. There is a 3$ parking fee unless you have an annual pass. There are no restrooms, but we have an abundance of trees.
