Come join me for a moderately paced jaunt on one of the lesser-used trails of the CNRA.
West Palisades is a beautiful CNRA unit - - a cousin to East Palisades across the river. It offers scenic views of the Chattahoochee as well as wooded trails. We'll hike at a moderate pace, and go 5 miles or so - - making this a good hike for people who want to exercise and still 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, rocky hill!
There are some parts of the trail that are rather "technical," requiring experience negotiating lots of rocks and ruts. This event is not recommended for inexperienced hikers.
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.
