Please join me for another edition of TGIF, this time at Vickery Creek.  

We will start on the Roswell side where the parking is free, cross the covered bridge and up into the Chattahoochee National Recreation Area Park. We will hike along the creek for a view of the dam and then over to the Oxbo Road bridge and back.   

The pace will be steady pace approx 2.5 an hour and we'll make water breaks as needed. There are some moderate climbs but nothing too hard. The trails do have rocks and roots so hiking poles might be helpful. 

There are restrooms at this location (you can use it before or after the hike, since they are by the covered bridge).

Please arrive a few minutes early to check in as we will leave on time.


(Thanks Sue M. for the info and the picture!)
