Come join Leader-in-training Allison Carter, and Lyndsay on one of Allison's favorite area paths, Paces Mill/Palisades. This shady, paved trail walks you by the Chattahoochee River and a tributary.

We will do a "hike at your own pace" because we return on the same path. I will hike at a leisurely to moderate pace and take the elevation at the end at a slow pace if needed. We'll turn around after 30 minutes, and head back on the same path. This way, those who want to walk at a slower pace are welcome too. 
Entrance to this park is on 41/Cobb Parkway near the BP station at Paces MIll Road. There is a $5 parking fee unless you have an annual pass. Be prepared with cash if you need a tag.

Up to 3 dogs are permitted, so if you see 3 dogs registered, please do not bring another.Dogs are required to stay on leash in all of the CNRA areas - - with penalties of $75 per animal if you are caught in violation of the law.  Besides. as representatives of the AOC, we want all participants to obey the park rules.
