We will walk North along the shady banks of the Chattahoochee all the way to the dam at Lake Lanier, and return to our cars along a slightly different route. On the way back we may see some deer. This hike offers nice views of the river, the dam, and Lake Lanier, so you may want to bring your camera. Optional: After the hike we will have lunch and drive a short distance to the Lower Overlook parking lot, to participate in the afternoon hike on the Laurel Ridge Trail.
