Itinerary:

We will hike in the mid morning to dodge the rain.  I am changing up my usual hike at Gold Branch to include more hills and more miles. This is not a hike for beginners.

If this sounds good to you join us for a mid morning fun hike at Gold Branch on the Chattahoochee.  We will start the hike at a fast pace and hike up to the ridge.  We then go along the top of the ridge to the back of the park before decending to hike along Bull Sluice lake.   The trail will take us up and down six hills before leading back to the parking lot. 

We will go up  six hills so this hike is not for beginners; and the pace will be fast though not a fitness hike.  We will practice social distancing.

The portion of the hike along the lake could be slippery so hiking poles are an option; though they are not a must.

There is a $5 parking fee at this location and there are no restrooms.  Do not leave your valubles visable in your car.
