Join me for a hike in Charleston Park, located on a penninsula jutting out into Lake Lanier.

Trails are mostly used by mountain bikers so we will need to give them the right of way.  Lots of up/down winding trails with occassional views of Lake Lanier.  We will be hiking at a moderate pace and should get in all the trails (just about 5.5 miles) in two hours.  

We will travel clockwise, opposite direction that the bikes will be going.

Beautiful park and location - one that does not hit the AOC calendar too often.

Required Items to Bring:


Hiking shoes/boots

Recommended Items to Bring:
Use our Event Checklists to make sure you have everything you need.

Hiking poles if you like to use them

How to Get There:
Event Directions:

5850 Charleston Park Rd

From 400 N, exit 17 -Keith Bridge Rd, turn right, travel to hwy 369 Browns Bridge Rd and turn Right.

Travel approximately 1.7 miles to Charleston Park Rd and turn right ( You'll see Mashburn Marine Storage on right. if you miss the turn there will be a second right immediately after that you can take).

As you pull into the park the boat launch is directly ahead and the park parking is to the left. Park at the parking and we'll meet in front of the bathrooms.
