Time to start getting in quick afterwork hikes at Sweetwater Creek. We'll start promptly at 5:30 and hike until 7:30. We'll hike parts of either the new Blue, Orange and Yellow trails OR perhaps we'll cover much of the White and Red trails with a bonus visit to Waller's pond. I know my way all over the park so although I won't promise which trails we'll take, I can commit to getting us back to our cars ontime. We will not be stopping to take pictures and this may not be a good hike for a beginner to the club unless you already have hiking experience. *Some evenings we may decide to challenge ourselves and tackle a few of the steep elevation connector trails.
Note: there is a $5 per vehicle parking fee if you do not already have a GA Parks State pass. No carpool for this event.
|How to Get There:|
Take I-20 west to exit 44 (Thornton Road). Make a left on Thornton Road (South) and then a right onto Blairs Bridge Road. Travel 2.1 miles to Mount Vernon Road and make a left. Drive about one mile to the park entrance and make a left on Factory Shoals Road. Drive about half a mile to the parking lot near the visitor's center.
