This park opened on July 1st 2011 and is one of Georgia's newest state parks. It occupies 2,900 acres of varied natural land in western Coweta County, with seven miles of river frontage along the Chattahoochee River. This is one of the largest State Parks in Georgia.

We will walk a figure eight loop that will include parts of most trails in the park, passing by our starting point and cars at around mile 6. We will hike at a moderate pace with time to enjoy our surroundings.

We will have lunch on the trail.
