Come join us for a moderately paced jaunt on one of the lesser-used trails of the CNRA.
West Palisades is one of the beautiful CNRA units - - a cousin to East Palisades. It offers scenic views of the Chattahoochee as well as wooded trails. We'll hike at a moderate pace, and go only 5 miles or so - - making this a good hike for people who want to exercise and enjoy a chance to socialize with others along the way. Hopefully, we'll all be able to breathe for the duration of the hike . . . except up that one LONG hill! Caution: Though beginners are welcome on this hike, it is NOT an easy trail . . . especially for folks who have no recent hiking experience.
Look for the apartments with the water wheel out front on Akers Mill Road! That's where you turn in. There are no signs indicating the trailhead here, so just trust that you're in the right place. Drive until you see the park CNRA sign for your left turn.
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.
