Please join me at East Palisades for a Sunday morning hike. We will be hiking approximateily 6 miles at a moderate pace to fast pace (but not too fast). The Bamboo Forest is a must see for anyone that has not been to this park. Spectacular views of the Chattahoochee River and surrounding area from top of a very steep hill (the BAH - also known as the Bad Ass Hill or the Big Ass Hill) but when we get to the hill it is go at your own pace - benches at the top for a short rest. The BAH turns a moderate D2 hike into a more challenging D3 hike.
There are no restrooms at this location
See directions to the trailhead at 1425 Indian Trail NW - the road leading to the parking lot is very narrow - go very slow as there may be cars traveling in the opposite direction.
$3.00 parking fee (cash) unless you have an annual pass for the CRNRA parks.
