The creek should be raging with all the rain.We will start our hike from the visitor's center on The red trail. We will go past old mill ruins and hike along the creek. We can then hike some of the yellow trail to see the ruins from the other side of the creek. Please bring a lunch or snack. The group will stop along the creek to have a snack and water. All of these trails have varied terrain with rocky areas and tree roots. Study hiking shoes are recommended. I am estimating about 6 miles but could be a little more. 

We will meet at the event, no carpool will be organized.

Entrance fee is $5.00 unless you have a Georgia State Park Pass.
