This is not a hike for a beginner. To qualify, you must have kept pace with a D2 group on a previous hike and be willing to keep pace with the group on this hike.
Elevation gain: 502 feet (there will be three 118 to 181 foot climbs)
Avg. Moving Speed: Fast end of Moderate (our last 3 hikes ranged from 2.3 to 2.7 mph)
Trail Condition: slippery and hazardous in places with the usual experiences of leaves over nuts, rocks, and roots, plus extra sticks and blowdowns and awkward slopes.
East Palisades is a unique hike in a densely forested park that rises to 400 feet above the Chatt ahoochee River. It offers some of the most scenic views of the river south of Lake Lanier. This hike will encompass the 48 acre park and include many of the Creeks and tributaries.
The loop hike will include the Poppi's Point Overlook deck as well as the Bamboo Forest.
