East Palisades offers several miles of trails that connect to a scenic overlook that offers excellent views of the Devil's Racecourse Shoals. The rugged granite palisades were called the Devil's Stairsteps during the 19th century by river boatmen because the shoals "were the devil" to navigate. We will hike about 4.5 to 5 miles of the trails in this section of the Chattahoochee NRA including sections along the river as well as a few steep, rugged areas. One of the highlights will be the bamboo forest - - a real treat for first timers. We will be hiking at a fast to moderately faster pace.
Please remember to bring $3 cash for the National Park Service parking fee, unless you have a Chattahoochee NRA annual pass.
If you bring your dog, it should be able to keep up with the group and interact well with other dogs and people. The Chattahoochee NRA requires that owners keep their dogs on a leash and clean up after their pets on the trails. A maximum of three dogs will be permitted on this hike.
