Moderate to Strenuous 5 miles

Note: My hikes are leisure speed at 2 to 2.5 miles an hour....with plenty of breaks for water and snacks....if you are fast hiker and wants to hike fast, this may not be the hike for you.

This is a great place to hike, hiking near Chattahoochee river and Rotten Wood Creek (thanks to local Sierra Club-the river is now clean). there will be couple of areas where we need to climb straight up approx. 500-700 feet or so, and there will be hiking on 4ft wide pipes to the other side, and some areas we have to walk on a very rocky surfaces, and some minor stream crossings involved. There will be nice views of the Chattahoochee and some mill ruins.

Required Items to Bring:
Plenty of water and lunch. If you have a hiking shoes its better. Trekking pole if you have it, if not you can find a walking stick on the trail.
