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.
It will be nice to get some distance in a beautiful location for a decent workout. The overall elevation gain is about 800 feet. Plan to bring a lunch and we will find a nice spot to eat. We should make it from the carpool location to the Visitor's Center by about 10:45 and will start hiking immediately. We should be done in time to avoid rush hour traffic. Hope to see you!
We can save on the parking fee by having a carpool to the event. It is a short driving distance from Chastain Road. But, we can save some bucks!
If you wish to meet at the event and drive directly to the Visitor's Center location:
There is a normal $5 parking fee at Georgia State Parks. But, there are many other options related to fee payment such as senior discounts, annual passes, and library parking loaner cards.
