This is it - - our 5th hike of the day to celebrate el Cinco de Mayo.  Join us on one of them, two of them, or even all of them, if you like!  Wear bright colors, and get into the spirit of the day!  (Mexico's colors are dark green, red, and white.)

We'll take this last hike at a pretty brisk pace, therefore, it is NOT a hike for beginners or for folks who can't maintain a moderately fast pace for 2 hours (with few stops and lots of hills).  

We'll meet at the Roswell Mill parking lot.  Follow the directions below.

We'll start the hike promptly at 5:15 pm, so arrive at least 10 minutes early to meet everyone before we start.  Parking is free at this location. 

Since we'll be going at a brisk pace, we're not inviting dogs along on this hike.  The trails are sometimes narrow with lots of roots, so dogs can become a tripping hazard.

Required Items to Bring:

Hiking Shoes, Water

Recommended Items to Bring:
Use our Event Checklists to make sure you have everything you need.

Insect repellant and sun screen.

Poles are recommended.

How to Get There:
Event Directions:

1 Mill Street, Roswell, GA

Roswell Mill is at HWY 120 and  HWY 9 (S. Atlanta Road) in Roswell. Use either the physical address below or the lat/lon coordinates to get your own directions. We are meeting down the road behind all of the shops at the Roswell Mill Center. Just keep driving down the road till you get to the big parking lot at the very bottom of the long hill.  You'll do a bit of winding as you descend to the lot.

We'll gather at the entrance to the covered bridge which is down the cement walkway through the wooden passageway.
