Not for Beginners due to the more challenging root & rock terrain!
Please join your fellow AOC buddies at Gold Branch for a hike along the Chattahoochee River! I love the trails here - lots of ups and downs & criss crossing. And as if that's not enough to challenge you, some sections are narrow and have lots of roots to negotiate! The hike will include the outer loop trails as well as a few inner loop trails with a couple of great hills which are sure to get your chest pounding. & best of all, mostly along the 'Hoochiee in case your looking for a beautiful Great Blue Heron or just feel the urge to take a momentary cool river dip! No restrooms at this park.
If you are new to the AOC, please include a short message with your registration telling me about your hiking experience/level of fitness. I need to make sure everyone on the hike is capable of keeping up with the group. If I feel you may not be able to keep up, I may remove you and request you join us when you have more hiking experience. This is for your own safety and in fairness to everyone in the group.
Please arrive 10 minutes early for introductions. Also, you have until 9:00 am on the day of the hike to remove yourself if something comes up. After that time, please call Russ at 404-353-3077 to cancel.
Just a reminder - there are no restrooms here! And don't forget your parking pass or $5 for parking.
DUE TO BREAK-INS, LOCK ALL VALUABLES IN YOUR TRUNK and OUT OF SIGHT!
