Because of a glitch in the registration process, we've run into the problem of having too many members added to the active list above the maximum limit of 20.  Please be aware that we will be moving members above 20 registrants to the waiting list in the order of their registration times.  People will then be added to the active list as we have withdrawals.   

We'll work our way over to the Braves Stadium but first we will check out the newest section of the Bob Callan trail that will eventually connect to a much bigger section.  The trail follows Rottenwood Creek. After we follow the new trail to it's ending point, we head back and take a turn to go over to the stadium.

This is a paved path so I do recommend tennis shoes over hiking boots.  There is also a bathroom at the start.

Please remember a $5.00 daily or $35.00 annual Park Pass is required on parked vehicles in the National Park.



Required Items to Bring:

Comfortable Tennis shoes for walking on pavement

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


Money if you want to purchase a drink or snack at the stadium
