Sope Creek is a more secluded entrance to the Cochran Shoals area of the Chattahoochee NRA. We will hike about five miles of the trails in the park including sections along the creek to see the ruins of an old paper mill, a short stop at Sibley Pond, and on various trails that loop through the woods.  

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.
