Are you in town for Thanksgiving, but not eating your big meal till later in the day? How about a morning hike, early enough to get home, shower, and get ready for whatever comes next? This hike will get you home by noon!
Island Ford has much to offer in the its variety of surfaces, views of the Chattahoochee, which usually hosts numerous geese and sometimes even a heron, and lots of short, challenging hills which get our hearts pumping!

8800 Roberts Drive, Sandy Springs, GA
From northbound US 19 and GA 400
From southbound US 19 and GA 400

* We encourage all members to follow our Etiquette Guidelines while participating in AOC events.
Cancellation/Partial Attendance: Please review the AOC cancellation policy.
Please cancel your registration yourself up to the time of the hike if you can't join us after all. It puts an unnecessary burden on the trip leaders to ask them to delete your registration before the hike starts.
And if you're on the waiting list, it's assumed you will hike on Thursday morning if you get a last-minute call. Please remove yourself from the waiting list if you can't get to the hike in short notice.
