From the West Palisades parking lot we will cross to the other side of the Chattahoochee over the Cobb Parkway bridge. After walking about 1.5 miles on a well marked trail, we will get to the East Palisades parking lot at the Whitewater Creek entrance. We will then walk a loop that first follows the shores of the Chattahoochee River and then climbs the cliffs above it, offering a spectacular view of the rapids below. After returning to the East Palisades parking lot we will get back to West Palisades the same way we came.
|How to Get There:|
From downtown Atlanta drive north on I 75 to Exit 256. At the bottom of the ramp take a left on Mt. Paran, and an immediate right on US 41/Cobb Parkway. Proceed 1 mile to the Chattahoochee River. Immediately after crossing the river take a right to the parking lot. We will meet at the fee paying station.
The parking fee is $3.00 per car.
