The website search function indicates it has been 6 years since the club last held a hike at Chastain.
For this hike, we have extended the popular 2.7 mile PATH Foundation sidewalk loop to include 3 bridle path loops to bring our total of 4.7 miles with 443 foot of elevation gain.
Our moving time will be 1 hour and 40 minutes at an average speed of 2.8 mph.
Here is a link for the route map:
This hike qualifies as a D2 hike which means an easy to moderate hike with gentle to moderate climbing at a moderate pace.
The park is the largest park acreage for the City of Atlanta and is dominated by 18-hole North Fulton golf course which will provide multiple long fairway views as we hike the golf course perimeter.
Due to the need for the public to head outdoors in these times, the City of Atlanta has temporarily closed the golf course on Tuesdays and opened the course to hikers. So, this Tuesday may be a special opportunity for our walk to include the golf course using its cart paths along side creeks and ponds and offer us the best fairway views.
Dogs are welcome.
This hike is the first of a series of Chastain hikes to take place from time to time.
We will meet at the "storm shelter"(a small covered bus stop-like area) at the north end of the Red Parking lot. This location is next to the Amphitheater so it should be easy for everyone to locate.
There is no restroom in the Red lot but there will be a restroom stop 0.5 miles into the hike and a portolet 2/3 through the hike.
|How to Get There:|
We will meet in the RED parking lot at the corner of Elliott Galloway Way & Powers Ferry Rd NW.
A couple dogs may be allowed as long as they are leashed and well-behaved. Please be prepared to clean up behind your pet to help keep the park nice for everyone.
