This is not a beginners hike.
New Start Time - 5:15
We are racing the sun, so we WILL have to shorten the hike. Bring a headlamp.
We are targeting a pace of 3 mph to be able to finish by dark.
Let’s get a quick 6 in after work. We’ll start at Columns Drive CRNRA. From there we’ll wind our way up to Soap Creek, taking in a brief stop at the old ruins. Then we’ll wind our way back to Columns Drive.
The hike will be close to 6 miles and about 700 feet of total elevation gain. We’ll be moving at a fast pace, averaging about 3 mph.
There is a $5 parking fee at CRNRA parks or you can buy an annual pass for $40. There is a kiosk at the parking lot to purchase parking passes.
There are restrooms at the parking area.
|How to Get There:|
Coming from Sandy Springs or Roswell on Johnson Ferry Road, turn left on Columns Drive. The turn is just after crossing the Chattahocohee River. Follow Columns Drive to the end. It will dead end in the Columns Drive CRNRA parking lot.
