Sweetwater Creek Park - We will start at the visitors center and hike various trails (yellow, orange, white, red) for about a 7.5 mile hike. Estimated time about 3 hours though may be slightly under/over. Very popular park so we are going to get started 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 (yellow trail), and some tricky footwork required on the rocks/boulders (red trail). We will take uphills, rocks, obstacle areas 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)
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.
|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.
