Itinerary:

Thank Goodness It's Friday!!! What better way to start the weekend: this brisk 5+ miler is over part of the AOC's routine weekly loop. Conditions have been a little sloppy, so be prepared for some loose terrain - trekking poles are always advised.

There are no formal stops planned since daylight is something we're trying to beat, so bring a headlamp or a flashlight.  Cannot wait for Sunday!! Anyway, come on out and let's stretch them legs!

Conveniently located in historic Roswell, GA, the historic "Vickery Creek" unit of the Chattahoochee River Nat'l Recreation Area (CRNRA) boasts an amazing variety of shady creekside and ridgetop trails and is one our Club's favorite places for hiking (mine for sure).


Required Items to Bring:

water
headlamp or flashlight
an on-the-go snack/gel (no scheduled stop)

Recommended Items to Bring:
Use our Event Checklists to make sure you have everything you need.

great pair of broken in shoes is a plus
