Please join me at Picketts Mill Historic Battlefield.  five miles in about 2 1/2 hours    Pace of hike will be slow and easy.  We will take a few quick water breaks.

I have found that Picketts Mill, after a few days of rain, has literally hundreds of mushrooms - odd shapes, sizes, colors, etc.  So I'm hoping for rain this week so we'll have great mushroom viewing on Saturday.   I can't promise we'll see mushrooms but we'll try our hardest to find them.

Picketts Mill - Meet in the parking lot at the visitor center. There is an entry fee of $5.50 per person ($3.50 for seniors) unless you have a State Historic Site pass.  GA State Parks pass does not work at this location.   Parking is free.  Entry fee will NOT be collected by the AOC.  Bring $$$ on day of event

All participants are responsible for paying entry fee at the visitor's center on 8/28/2021
