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.
