|Our hike will begin with the orange trail clockwise for 2.3 miles. In order to hike the orange trail, we must began with the yellow trail for a short distance while crossing the bridge over the creek. Once we finish the orange trail we connect with the yellow trail clockwise for 3.0 miles . When we finish the yellow trail there will be a brief bathroom break at the visitor center. After the break, we start on the white trail clockwise for 5 miles to finish. This hike has approximately 1500 ft elevation gain. This is apparently a somewhat long hike, so let's be in fairly good hiking shape! I would like to see some high D3s and some good D4s and above for sign up. I will use my discretion in judging your ability to hike this event. Please no audible music or tree climbing!|
|How to Get There:|
Sweetwater Creek State Park hiking trail parking lot near the visitor center: Take I-20 west from Atlanta, exit #44 at Thornton Road, turn left and go 1/4 mile. Turn right on Blairs Bridge Road, go 2 miles and turn left on Mount Vernon Road. Travel a couple more miles and into the park. Just after crossing over the lake, look for a sign that says hiking/nature trails, and take a left there (there is a small entry gate). Continue straight to the end of the road to the parking area.
Will hike rain or shine! Not in severe weather.
