Itinerary:

This is a very scenic hiking spot at the Sweetwater Creek State Park with well-maintained trail systems, beautiful creek, gorgeous landscapes, and it’s close to home. We will take breaks at our stopping points to fully enjoy the nature.

We’ll meet and start in front of the Interpretive Center/Park Office. We’ll cover all of the trails including Yellow, Orange, Red, White Trails, and their connecting trails. We’ll take breaks at the Interpretive Center and scenic spots along our way.

Please only register if you have D4 and up hiking experience. We’ll go at a moderate pace; but it’s not slow & leasure.

Georgia State Park requires $5 entry/parking fee, or your annual pass. Annual pass is a great way to motivate oneself to keep coming back and enjoy all of the Georgia state parks. It is more convenient and very cost effective.

If your experience is not from the club, please include it in a note when you register, or email TL; otherwise you will be moved to the waiting list for the safety of everyone. We encourage our members to actively participate with joyful experience, and most importantly to stay healthy and safe at the end of our event.
