From the Paces Mill Boat Ramp Lot, we will hike the hill on the main West Palisades trail and then descend to the two beaches at the river. Our climb from there takes us to the Akers Ridge parking lot and down the street to pickup trails through apartments. We wll cross the river bridge and then make a right toward Ray's.
We will then be off trail for a bit for some light bushwacking and palisades climbing before making our way down the bluff to the beginning of the main East Palisades trail along the river. We will climb to the overlook deck before preceding further along the river. After passing the Whitewater Creek lot, we will be off trail along the river as we head toward Cobb Parkway. This section will include several creek and tree blowdown crossings. We will use the Cobb Parkway bridge to return to our parking lot for the completion of the trek.
