Unwind from the daily grind this evening with a hike on the scenic South Peachtree Creek Trail at Mason Mill and Medlock Park.
We will meet in front of the restrooms/playground at Mason Mill. Please arrive a few minutes early for checking in and introductions.
Since traffic in Atlanta is unpredicatable, and if you're already on your way, please call. The trail is pretty well-defined, so you can easily catch up with the group.
The South Peachtree Creek Trail was built by the Path Foundation. The concrete and elevated boardwalk trail meanders along and over the creek and has slight elevation changes. So, if like me, you'll be working all day, or if you're a beginner to hiking, this will be a moderately easy 5 mile hike -- starting with a quick mile around the perimeter of the park and the community garden, 2 miles along the new portion of the trail towards Druid Hills, and 2 miles on the original trail to Medlock Park.
It will be dark during our hike, so please bring a flashlight or headlamp.
Beginners are welcome.
Small to medium sized and well-behaved dogs are welcome.
More about the trail and parks:
Along the trail, there's an old stone bridge that crosses over Burnt Fork Creek. There are also little trails off the paved trail, one of which goes across the creek to Melton Park and the historic Decatur Waterworks. (We will not be taking these trails on this outing. But do be on the lookout for future hikes that will.)
