West Palisades connects Akers Mill and Paces Ferry on the west bank of the Chattahoochee River at Devil's Shoals. We will hike about five miles of the trails in this section of the Chattahoochee NRA including sections along the river as well as in the woods. The trail is mostly flat; however, there are a few uphill sections. We will be hiking at a leisurely to moderate pace. There are lots of rocks and roots on the trail - so choose your shoes wisely. Please remember to bring $3 cash for the National Park Service parking fee, unless you have a Chattahoochee NRA annual pass.
All dogs must be well-behaved and friendly towards people and dogs of all sizes. Owners must keep their dogs on a leash at all times and clean up after their pets on the trail.
Dress appropriately for the weather. The uphills will really get your blood flowing, so dress in layers so you can regulate your temperature.
WE WILL MEET AT THE PARKING LOT off Akers Mill Rd and Akers Dr. Click on the map link here and look at the address to make sure you go to the right spot.
Optional lunch will be had at the Doc Greens on 41 about 1.5 miles from the event.
