|Join us for an evening hike at the beautiful East Palisades section of the Chattahoochee National Recreation Area. This hike will include several steep ascents as well as a few brief stops at interesting landmarks, so in order to cover the distance before dark, we will hike at a moderate to fast pace. We will stop at some unique features including the cave, the ruins, the bamboo forest, and scenic overlooks. After pausing to watch the sunset at the viewing platform, we will head back to our vehicles at dusk. |
We will meet at the Whitewater Parking lot at 6:15 for introductions and hit the trail at 6:30 sharp. Be prepared for several very steep inclines with granite or loose dirt surfaces.
