Hyde Farm and Mulberry Creek

We will start our hike at the Hyde Farm trailhead off Hyde road.  We will see the home of the Powers Family who among other things, operated Powers Ferry during the 1800's.  During our hike we will also learn about the large East Cobb farm that was operated first by the Powers family and then later by the Hyde family.  

For this hike the itinerary will be dependant upon trail conditions but may include a visit to Morgan Falls dam, Mulberry creek and other points of interest.  We may also pop into the Johnson Ferry North CRNRA unit for a bit as well.  I estimate the 2 hour trek will cover approximately 5 miles but could be more or less dependent upon the path we end up taking. 

Required Items to Bring:

Hiking Boots or Shoes (waterproof recommended but not required)


Recommended Items to Bring:

Hiking Poles if you use them (helpful with creek crosings)
