7-9 miles moderate hike at casual pace

The hike in Sweetwater Creek will be a 7 mile loop on their ‘white, blue, and red’-- (historical trail). There will be an optional hike after on the ‘yellow’ trail, across the iron Bridge over Sweetwater Creek, and additional two miles, if we are feeling energetic, and the weather is agreeable. This is a good hike and workout, close to town, which includes passing by a small lake, waterfall and cascades on Sweetwater Creek. Lastly the trail passes a Civil War mill ruins on the historical trail, then back through more wooded area to the parking lot. Those that wish can then enjoy a late lunch-early dinner at an inexpensive restaurant nearby.

How to Get There:
Event Directions: near Lithia Springs, GA 9:30am – Sweetwater Creek State Park hiking trail parking lot The park, if anyone insists on going there alone, (there is a small per car fee) is a left hand turn off of the exit over I-20 and about a ½ mile to the first light-Blairs Bridge Road - (large car dealers mark the corner) where you will need to turn right. Follow this road a couple of miles to the Sweetwater Creek State Park sign (indicates left-hand turn).
