Let's spend Friday morning hiking at East Palisades. If you have not hiked in this unit of the CRNRA yet, you are in for a treat. Yes there are hills but also some nice walks down by the Chattahoochee River. This hike will feature a variety of terrain from rocky hilltops with great views to moist marshy areas near the creekside and river floodplain. In total we will cover about 4.5 miles in about 2 hours. You will need $5 (or use your CRNRA annual pass) for parking.
We will start at the Indian Trail trailhead parking lot. First we will head out towards the park entrance and then head down towards the river. Our plans include a visit to the Bamboo Forest and then start heading up towards the Observation Deck overlooking the River where we will take a quick water break. We will use the remainder of our time hiking the various trails again back down near the river and finish with one last climb back to the parking lot where we started.
Drive slowly on the gravel entrance road to East Palisades as there are some dips and potholes. There are no bathroom facilities at the parking lot so plan accordingly.
