We will hike several different trails at Sope Creek adding up to about 7 miles in 2 1/2 hours.  We will be hiking at a fast pace.  There aren't any major hillls here (but there are still hills!), so we should be able to move pretty quickly.  

We will meet at Sope Creek Elementary School. If you are looking at the school, we will meet at the far left. Parking is free here on the weekends.  

There are no restrooms here.

Event Directions:

Sope Creek Elementary School Parking Lot

3320 Paper Mill Rd SE
Marietta, GA

Directions: Take Interstate 75 North out of Atlanta to Windy Hill Road (exit 260). Turn right on Windy Hill Road, and then left on Powers Ferry Road. At the intersection of Powers Ferry and Terrell Mill Road, take a right on Terrell Mill. Take a right on Paper Mill Road; Sope Creek Elementary is located about 1/2 mile down on the right at the intersection of Paper Mill Road and Shadowlawn Road.  

From Johnson Ferry Road, cross the river going North; turn left at the Paper Mill Road intersection, past the Columns Drive light.  Stay on Paper Mill as it winds along to the Sope Creek bridge.  Once you cross the bridge, be alert for the Sope Creek sign on your left, about 1/4 mile from the bridge.  Pass this parking lot and continue approximately 1/3 miles further to the stop light at Shadowlawn Road.  The elementary school will be on your left.  

If you're traveling south on Johnson Ferry Road, turn right at Paper Mill Road and proceed according to the directions above.
