This is our second of 5 hikes today to celebrate Mexico's Cinco de Mayo! Join us on one of them, two of them, or all of them if you're up for the challenge! Wear a sombrero and get into the spirit of the day! We'll take a break between hikes 3 and 4 to have a Mexican lunch at Tijuana Joe's on Roswell Road (Sandy Springs). Lunch will take place around 2 pm. Join us!
We never get tired of hiking at Vickery Creek. It offers so much with a variety of trails and routes, beautiful views of the water along the creeks and at the dam, and occasional glimpses of wildlife. We'll keep a brisk pace over rocky, root-laden terrain on this one, so it's NOT a hike that will be comfortable for beginning hikers. PLEASE NOTE WE ARE PARKING AT RIVERSIDE PARK! There's plenty of free parking here and bathrooms are available! We'll cross the street and enter the Vickery Creek CNRA from here.
We will start on time (10:15 am), so please arrive a 10 minutes early to check in and do introductions. There is a bathroom at this location so plan to arrive early enough to use it before the hike.
|How to Get There:|
We will meet at the big Roswell Mill parking lot. It's usually filled during the week, but I think we'll have plenty of room to park on Saturday morning. It's a free parking lot.
We are meeting behind the shops at the Roswell Mill Center. It is where Hwy 9 (S. Atlanta St) and Hwy 120 (Marietta Hwy) intersect. Keep driving down the road until you get to the big parking lot at the very bottom of the hill.
