It's Labor Day, so the parks might be rather crowded. We'll start a little earlier (9 am) to hopefully beat the majority of visitors. And the Akers Mill parking lot is still one of the least used lots in our local CRNRA parks.
West Palisades is one of the most beautiful CNRA units - - a cousin to East Palisades. 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 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 hill! Caution: Beginners are warned that this is a challenging D2 hike; it is NOT an easy trail . . . especially for folks who have no recent hiking experience.
There is a $5 parking fee at this location, unless you have an annual pass. Parking passes must be obtained online either in advance or on your smartphone & credit card at the parking lot. Please allow time to purchase your pass before our 9 am start time.
Up to 3 dogs will be permitted on the hike, so if you already see 3 dogs registered, please do not bring another. Dogs are required to stay on leash in all of the CNRA areas As representatives of the AOC, we want all participants to obey the park rules.
