PLEASE NOTE THE PARKING LOT - - WHITEWATER CREEK (Not the Indian Trail lot) This hike will encompass the 48 acre park. A figure 8 Loop will include all Creeks and tributaries, the 3 Shoals up River and down River, the Bamboo Grove and Dog Beach and maybe run into Mr. Chattahoochee!! The North end hike to the Palisades will include a brief outcropping scramble to the top. Once you get to the top you will have afforded views of the 2 shoals - to the West and The Chattahoochee Coffee Company. This hike also includes a brief Bushwhack to the East in order to complete the North Loop. You will have close to around a 1,000 feet of park travel on this hike. We will stay on all proposed blue blazed trails except for the brief Bushwhack. TLs are also welcome to observe this hike. My only concerns for this hike is the rock scramble to the Palisades, the muddy trail and unleashed dogs! I'm requesting sign up attendees with sure footing and adaptabilities off trail. Please make sure you meet me at the WhiteWater Creek location. Please no audible music, tree climbing, selfies on edge of rocks, cliffs and no heavy perfume! It will be advantageous to start this hike at 7:30 am. There are no restrooms on the premises. I really appreciate the help that I have received to start these new grounds . Thanks Armin!
