It will be nice to end the year with some hiking in a beautiful location.  The overall elevation gain is about 450 feet.  Plan to bring a lunch and we stop at a nice spot by the lake.  Hope to see you!

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.
