Let’s explore two of the CRNRA units located in Roswell, Allenbrook and Vickery Creek. We will begin our hike by hiking a short distance out the Roswell Boardwalk and visit the ruins of the Ivy Mill which operated in the area starting in the mid 1800’s. Next we will move into the Allenbrook CRNRA unit, an infrequently visited unit which has a rich history and beauty. We will hike past the Allenbrook house itself and the cliffs overlooking Vickery Creek. Also, we will walk along Vickery creek and view the cliffs from their base.
Next we will make our way to the Vickery Creek unit where we will be hiking a variety of trails. After doing a loop in Vickery Creek, we will finally exit and head back to our cars at the Riverside Park. Our hike will cover about 5.5 miles.
Due to the difficulty of some of the trail we will be covering, this hike is not recommended for beginners.
Additional Note: Due to the nature of this hike, I cannot take a large group. If a system glitch inadvertently allows more that the maximum number indicated I will move those over the number I am comfortable with taking to the wait list. Just be aware of this in advance and any vacancies will be filled in order of registration.
|How to Get There:|
We will meet at the Riverside Park on Riverside Road in Roswell.
The parking lot is quite large and there are bathroom facilities here. Parking is free. Park on the right side after entering the park and we will meet up near the bathrooms.
