The "BER" months are almost upon us...SeptemBER, OctoBER....BER standing for Backpacking Endless Routes! And for me really the only time to backpack is the BER months (and the other BURRRR months!). #HateHotBPing, even tho it's slated to be WARM Thursday, it's good training....at least you don't have to sleep in the heat
Conveniently located in historic Roswell, GA, the historic "Vickery Creek" unit of the Chattahoochee River Nat'l Recreation Area (CRNRA) boasts an amazing variety of shady creekside and ridgetop trails and is one our Club's favorite places for hiking (mine for sure). We'll be re-grouping at the top of the bigger climbs, but there are no formal stops planned (we'll play that by ear).
|How to Get There:|
We will meet in the upper parking lot at the Groveway Park area above the Roswell Aquatic Center
198 Frank Lewis Dr. Roswell, GA 30075 #GTS - it will get you close.
Arrive 10-15 minutes early to get head count and intros in. The GPS link above is pretty accurate too...look for the Lil Sasquatch :P
yes 6 p.m. HORHAY!!! duh!
LEAVE NO TRACE!
