Join me for a moderately paced 5-miler at Sope Creek. We'll start at the elementary school parking lot and enter the park from a different trail than the one at the official Sope Creek parking lot. Drive all the way to the left end of the lot . . . near the open field. Parking spaces should be available here.
Some of the trails at Sope Creek have lots of rocks and roots, and we may have to do a tiny bit of rock hopping across minor creeks . . . but nothing significant. Bring a hiking pole or two for stability if you like.
NOTE THAT WE'RE GATHERING IN THE SOPE CREEK ELEMENTARY SCHOOL PARKING LOT!
If you bring your dog, it should be able to keep up with the group and interact well with other dogs and people. The Chattahoochee NRA requires that owners keep their dogs on a leash and clean up after their pets on the trails. Please be willing to keep your dog on leash out of consideration to other hikers, because it's the law and because the reputation of the AOC is damaged when members break the leash law.
Limit of 3 dogs, please!
|How to Get There:|
3320 Papermill Road, Marietta, GA.
The Sope Creek Elementary School parking lot is on Papermill Road, about 1/4 mile from the official Sope Creek parking lot. If you're coming from Johnson Ferry Road, go about 1/2 mile past the Sope Creek bridge, to Sope Creek Elementary School on your left. If you're coming from I-75 on Papermill, it will be on your right at the traffic light at Shadowlawn Road. When you turn into the school parking lot, go to the large lot on your left and park all the way at the end. This is where the school field is located.
No parking fee at this location. No bathrooms, either!
