Monday looks like a good time to revisit one of our favorite parks - - Leita Thompson! We haven't hiked there on our Monday morning hikes for a while, so it's definitely time to return. The trails at Leita Thompson are wide and relatively free of rocks and roots. Though there are changes in elevation, they're moderate and fairly easy to handle if you've been doing some recent hiking. We'll be moving at a moderate pace (not slow!), getting in about 5 miles in 2 hours.
There are no bathrooms, but there are three sets of porta potties throughout the park. And - - of course - - there are plenty of trees. Using the porta potties will likely result in a nice exit photo of you to add to the photo album. :-)
I will start on time, so please arrive a few minutes early (9:50 am) to check in and meet your fellow members.
Be ready to turn into the park driveway as soon as you pass through the traffic light on Woodstock Road. We'll be meeting in the large lot where the Art Center building is located. If you park in the pavilion lot, you'll have to walk up the gravel road to meet the group. It's best to just drive up the road so that we can all park in the large overflow lot.
Parking is free.
Panera Bread is close by, so it's an option if you'd like to go there for lunch!
|How to Get There:|
N 34.06258, W -84.40270
Woodstock Rd, Roswell, GA 30075, USA - just past intersection of Woodstock and Mountain View roads
Roswell, GA 30075
There are three parking lots in the area: one for the dog park, the second for the arts center and overflow lot, and the third for the pavillion lot. We will be parking in the second lot, to the left of the arts center.
From Atlanta take GA-400 N to exit 7B W/Holcomb Bridge Rd in Roswell. Continue west on Holcomb Bridge Rd for 5.7 miles. On your right you will pass Chick-fil-a and Mountain Park Rd. Take the next right immediately after the light. This is the entrance for the dog park and Art Center West. Make an immediate left for the gravel overflow parking lot
If you have time after the hike, join us at Panera Bread, just 1/4 mile from the park.
