We will hike a variety of trails in the Sope Creek area of the Chattahoochee NRA and visit the ruins of an old mill.
Our pace will be moderate, around 2.7 mph, and we will plan on covering about 6 to 7 miles in 2 and half hours. There are some small hills and a few roots and rocks, but nothing too difficult.
