Please join me at East Palisades for early Saturday morning hike. We will be hiking approximateily 5 miles at a moderate pace (not super fast). The Bamboo Forest is a must see for anyone that has not been to this park. Spectacular views of the Chattahoochee River and surrounding area
(if you heard about the 'bad ass hill' don't worry, we will not attempt on this hike)
There are no restrooms at this location
See directions to the trailhead at 1425 Indian Trail NW - the road leading to the parking lot is very narrow - go very slow as there may be cars traveling in the opposite direction.
$5.00 daily parking fee unless you have an annual pass for the CRNRA parks.
Pass can be purchased at the Kiosk in the parking lot - I undersatnd that they don't take cash any longer - you should be able to scan a code with your phone and pay electroncially. or prior to hike go to this website and purchase a daily or annual pass https://www.nps.gov/chat/planyourvisit/fees.htm
Starting early as parking lot gets full fast - arrive at 7:50 for hike start time of 8:00 and there should be plenty of parking.
COVID-19 - please be respectful to AOC members and other hikers on the trails - keep social distance between yourself and your fellow hikers.
AOC limit on this event is 10 hikers - ocassionally (if everybody logs in at once and registers at once) the system has a glitch and may allow more than 10 hikers on the event. If this does happen I am obligated to keep to the 10 limit and remove the last ones that signed up. I get notification of time you register and to be fair the first 10 are the only ones that I keep on the roster.
