Join your AOC friends & buddies for a conversational hike along Vickery Creek, in Roswell. We will begin our hike at the Oxbo Rd. Parking Lot for Vickery Creek.  This moderately challeging loop (covered with many exposed roots & medium size rocks) explores the hills and banks along Vickery Creek, which powered one of the South's most important mills during the 1800s. It begins at the Oxbo Rd. Vickery Creek Pedestrian Bridge entrance to Vickery Creek and with the exception of a few short steep stretches alongside the creek-ravine bluffs and gorges, the terrain is fairly level.  We will make a scenic loop, including Roswell's Covered Bridge, with new ascending entrance steps to the park (Moderate D-2, for 5 miles).  Additionally, the hike includes a stop at the spillway dam, which fed the mill wheel in a factory downstream. Supplying textiles for Confederate uniforms, the mill was a primary target for Gen. William Sherman whose troops destroyed the facility during the Civil War. The trails along Big Creek are very scenic with the sound of a rushing mountain creek and waterfall.  We will stop and take a few pictures along the trail.  Never know when a Blue Heron might just drop in for a fish or two!  

A Max. of (2) dogs allowed & they must stay on a leash at all times, for the reputation of the AOC.  

Please arrive a few minutes early to check in. Be sure and use the bathroom, previously, as there are no restrooms available, until, we reach the covered bridge, during our hike.  If you're running late or can't make it at the last minute, please call Russ at 404-353-3077. 

Following the hike, you're welcome to drive a short distance & join some of us for a tasty lunch at Moxie Burger on their patio, overlooking the covered bridge.
