FULL DISCLOSURE: The CDC has relaxed mask restrictions so we're hiking mask free for the first time in years. However, based on your personal needs, feel free to use MASKS and practice SOCIAL DISTANCING.

That said, rain or shine, we'll hike the refurbished South Peachtree Creek boardwalk from MEDLOCK PARK to the Candler Lake loop (on the Emory campus) and back. We'll maintain a brisk pace to get our blood pumping over the 4.7 mile roundtrip hike, while we enjoy the lovely views. The majority of the hike is on a wooden boardwalk or concrete path, with some sections on gravel, dirt etc., so wear appropriate footwear.

Required Items to Bring:

Weather appropriate gear

Comfortable shoes


MASK (optional)
