Please join me for a hike through the beautiful trails of the Vickery Creek.   The first part of this hike is a bit steep but we will go at a moderate pace keeping the group together.  The trail has moderate elevation changes with roots and rocks.  We will see some nice winter views that aren't visible in the spring and summer.  We might even see some snow !  Our speed will be approx 2.5 mph.  

We will meet at the Riverside Road entrance which is part of the Chattachoochee National Recreation Area.  Parking is $3 cash unless you have an annual parking pass.  There are no NO bathrooms at this location.

Please arrive a few minutes early to check in as we will leave on time.
