This should be a nice chill hike for a warm morning. 

We will follow Mulberry Creek through a shaded forest and cross the Creek on stones 18 times. 

If the creek happens to be high, we might even get our feet wet -- which we may want to do anyway to enjoy a cold water treatment for our feet and ankles.

The Creek hike is an "in and out" through the Hyde Farm County Park.  

After the creek, we will make our way through the Hyde Farm which dates to the 1830s

We will not visit the Chattahoochee due to construction in the utility  right of way == not to mention the lack of shade.  

367 foot of elevation gain

3.1 mph avg. speed with half the mileage slightly faster

1:49 moving time
