This will be a leisurely paced hike at Sweetwater Creek State Park. This is a fun and scenic hike very close to town. I am bring my new Goldendoodle puppy and she is not ready for a faster paced hike. We will complete a 4 mile hike on the white and red trails.
White Trail: 3 miles one way. Blazed white. Rated moderate to difficult.
Red Trail: 1 mile one way. Blazed red. Rated easy to difficult.
Anyone wanting to hike additional miles will have the option to hike the yellow trail. This will add 3 additional miles.
|How to Get There:|
Sweetwater Creek State Park hiking trail parking lot near the visitor center: Take I-20 west from Atlanta, exit #44 at Thornton Road, turn left and go 1/4 mile. Turn right on Blairs Bridge Road, go 2 miles and turn left on Mount Vernon Road. Travel a couple more miles and into the park. Just after crossing over the lake, look for a sign that says hiking/nature trails, and take a left there (there is a small entry gate). Continue straight to the end of the road to the parking area.
