Vickery Creek, aka Big Creek, is one of the Chattahoochee National Recreation Areas. It is located right off the Square, in Roswell.
We will walk down the street from the parking lot to a bridge across the creek. From there we will basically walk counter clockwise around the trails in the park. The creek is large and scenic. The woods are a bit scruffy in spots, but they are ok. There is one tricky spot in the gorge; it's a "cliff"; we'll take a little extra care get thru it and keep on truckin'. We will visit the old dam, originally built in 1836, with the waterfall now flowing over it. Then its back across the bridge to the parking lot.
