Mike can't lead this week - we will be substituting his event.

We'll start, at 6:00 PM sharp, at Suwanee Creek Park (the southern terminus of the Suwanee Creek Greenway), 1170 Buford Highway.  Plan to meet at the pavilion near the end of the parking lot.  The elevation change is minimal, but this is a fitness hike so the pace will be fast (4 mph).  If you prefer a leisurely walk, this may not be for you.  We’ll go north on the trail past McGinnis Ferry Road, Martin Farm Road, and Lawrenceville Suwanee Road, to Suwanee Elementary School.  At that point we’ll turn around and retrace our steps to Suwanee Creek Park.  We will make occasional stops to regroup as needed.  The trail is a combination of paved trail and boardwak, so footing will not be a problem. 

Required Items to Bring:

Walking shoes


Recommended Items to Bring:

Shirt to change into after the hike.
