Note: This is an "EXPLORATORY" trip. This means that there are parts of this trip, or perhaps the whole trip, that is new to your Trip Leader(s). However, they are confident that this will not be an issue.
This note is here so that you can make an informed decision. When a Trip Leader isn't personally familiar with a trip, there is an increased chance of things not going as planned and you need to be prepared. The Trip Leader may have additional details in the itinerary.


Join me for an exploratory hike in Charleston Park, located on a penninsula jutting out into Lake Lanier.

Trails are mostly used by mountain bikers so we will need to give them the right of way.  Lots of up/down winding trails with occassional views of Lake Lanier.  We will be hiking at a moderate pace and should get in all the trails (just under 6 miles) in just over two hours.  I have posted hike at 6 miles/2.5 hours but due to the exploratory nature of the hike time/distance may be slightly over/under.

We will travel counter clockwise, opposite direction that the bikes will be going.

Required Items to Bring:


Hiking shoes/boots

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

Hiking poles if you like to use them
