|Join us for a morning hike at Sweetwater Creek State Park. We will complete a 4 mile loop on the white and red trails, followed by 3 mile loop on the yellow trail. This is a fun and scenic hike very close to town. We will start on the white trail, which passes through a remote area of the park over to Jack's Lake and then meets up with the red trail at the falls. We will continue onto the red trail, passing a large Civil War mill ruin. We will then follow the yellow trail, that passes through a hardwood forest and has an elevation gain of approximately 350 feet. |
Total distance is 7 miles, and we will try to maintain a moderate pace.
Please plan to arrive by 8:45 am to sign the waiver. We will head to the trail at 9 am.
