We will meet in the parking lot on Lower Roswell Road and hike the main loop trail in a counterclockwise direction.  There is a bit of gentle elevation - nothing too strenuous.  We will be hiking at a moderate pace.  Total hike will be two hours and approximately 4 miles. We will stop for a couple very brief water breaks.

Hike will be at a leisurely pace - NOT FAST - great for beginners, great for those that haven't been to this beautiful park along the Chattahoochee.

Gold Branch has many, many roots, ruts, uneven ground, etc. so hiking shoes are a must and hiking poles are suggested.  

There are NO restrooms at this location

Required Items to Bring:

$5 cash for a daily parking pass - OR if you have the annual CRNRA pass just display in your vehicle and you are good to go.

Recommended Items to Bring:
Use our Event Checklists to make sure you have everything you need.

Hiking shoes, hiking poles or sticks, water and snacks.

How to Get There:
Event Directions:

Approximate physical address is 6156 Lower Roswell Road, Marietta GA   30068

 Gold Branch is on Lower Roswell Road between Johnson Ferry Road and Wileo Road.  The park entrance is between residential subdivisions and is easy to miss if you are not watching for it.  The sign is just a green street sign that says Gold Branch Drive. 

If you are coming from Johnson Ferry Road it is on the right about 2 miles from Johnson Ferry. 

If you are coming from Wileo, it is also a couple of miles but will be on your left. 

If you are following Azalea Drive turn left onto Wileo but be aware that Wileo becomes Lower Roswell Road when it does a 90 degree left turn in the roundabout.   The park is 2 miles further down Lower Roswell on your left.
