Sweetwater Creek Park - We will start at the visitors center and hike various trails (white, red, brown, blue) for about an 8 mile hike. Estimated time about 3 hours though may be slightly under/over. Very popular park so we are going to get started very early hopefully to avoid big crowds.
We will hike at a steady moderate pace with a few water breaks. THere is some elevation at Sweetwater but we will take any uphills slow. We will be hiking at a moderate pace - not super fast, not slow.
$5.00 fee for parking pass unless you have an annual GA State Parks pass which is easiest if you purchase in advance online - click link below (there is also kiosk in the parking lot to purchase parking pass)
|How to Get There:|
Take I-20 west to exit 44 (Thornton Road). Make a left on Thornton Road (South) and then a right onto Blairs Bridge Road. Travel 2.1 miles to Mount Vernon Road and make a left. Drive about one mile to the park entrance and make a left on Factory Shoals Road. Drive about half a mile to the parking lot near the visitor's center.
