Join us for an morning hike at Sweetwater Creek State Park. We will complete a 4 mile loop on the white and red trails. This is a fun and scenic hike very close to town. We will start on the white trail, which passes through a remote area of the park over to Jack's Lake and then meets up with the red and blue trails at the falls. We will complete our loop on the red trail, hiking along the rapids of the creek, and a large Civil War mill ruin.
