Join me for a pre-beginner backpacking event for the events that I'm hosting in early April and early May. We'll meet at 11am go over some gear options, set packs properly if needed, a shakedown or two if needed too and then we'll be on the trail. I have 90 minutes for the 3 .1 miles, it shouldn't take that long, but that's to include the shakedown and pack check prior to getting on the trails...and another reason we're meeting in the paved lots up by the soccer fields.
Conveniently located in historic Roswell, GA, the historic "Vickery Creek" unit of the Chattahoochee River Nat'l Recreation Area (CRNRA) boasts an amazing variety of shady creekside and ridgetop trails and is one our Club's favorite places for hiking (mine for sure). We'll be re-grouping at the top of the bigger climbs, but there are no formal stops planned (we'll play that by ear).
So - if you're on the list for either of those events, or you just want to try your hand at a short backpack trianing hike...this is it. C'mon out!
Then be sure to sign up for the Monthly Social at NRT at 4pm! Cheers! https://www.atlantaoutdoorclub.com/event/details.asp?eventid=16746
|How to Get There:|
We will meet in the outside edge of the parking lot nearest the Soccer/Baseball Fields - see GPS link by Event Location above.
Oxbo Road, UP Dobbs Road (around the city facilities building), continue around the bends until you see the large parking lots - we'll be right off the outside edge, so we don't get tangled up in the kiddie sports chaos
The address is near :::
Arrive 10-15 minutes early to get head count and intros in...after all I'm a newbie I might even make y'all pose for a photo :)
