This is not a beginners hike.
Start Time - 6:00
We are targeting a pace of 3 mph.
Mike cannot do his hike this week, so he has asked me to fill in for him. The route we take will be a little bit different but I will try to keep it to 6 miles and keep to the time.
Let’s get a quick 6 in after work. We’ll start at Sope Creek CRNRA. From there we’ll wind our way down to Columns Drive, taking in a brief stop at the restrooms. Then we’ll wind our way back to Sope Creek, including a quick lap of the pond.
The hike will be just over 6 miles and about 800 feet of total elevation gain. We’ll be moving at a fast pace, averaging about 3 mph.
There is a $5 parking fee at CRNRA parks or you can buy an annual pass for $40. You can purchase daily parking with your smart phone at Sope Creek. There is a sign with the QR code in the parking lot. You can purchase an annual pass at the Island Ford CRNRA Ranger Station.
There are no restrooms at the parking area.
|How to Get There:|
Coming from Sandy Springs or Roswell on Johnson Ferry Road, turn left on Paper Mill Road. The turn is at the top of the big hill, after crossing the Chattahocohee River. After you cross the bridge on Paper Mill Road, the entrance will be on your left as you are going up the hill.
