Our hike starts at the visitor center. We will follow the Indian Seats Trail and cross Bettis-Tribble Rd to the Mountainside Trail. We will gain some elevation and distance by hiking the Church Trail, then finish the Mountainside loop to the Hilltop Trail (skipping the rough and rocky Ridgeline Trail).
We will cross Bettis-Tribble again and take a 15 minute snack break at the restroom area before continuing on the Indian Seats Trail. We'll stop again at the Indian Seats overlook. The wooden deck at the overlook has been rebuilt, so we will have an opportunity to stop and enjoy the views. The hike ends with a return to the visitor center.
We will hike at an approximate speed of 2.5 - 2.7 mph.
|How to Get There:|
The visitor center address is: 4075 Spot Road, Cumming, GA.
The current weather forecast for next Tuesday indicates a chance of rain at hike time. I will monitor the weather and advise of any changes or cancellation.
There is no parking fee at the visitor center.
