Join me on one of my favorite area paths, Paces Mill/Palisades. This shady, paved trail walks you by the Chattahoochee River and a tributary. it's a great walk for beginners with little elevation and an evenly paved path. 

We will about 3.5 miles at a moderate pace, about 3 mph. We'll turn around at the end, and head back on the same path.  
The entrance to this park is on 41/Cobb Parkway near the BP station at Paces Mill Road. There is a $5 parking fee unless you have an annual pass. Be prepared with a smart phone if you need to buy a pass. 

Arrive a few minutes early to get parking and for introductions so we can begin on time.

Water is a must!!! Even though it's early, the end half is in the sun.


*Bathrooms available at parking lot
