TGIF changes location! We will start our walk at Mason Mill and head to Medlock Park, two adjoining DeKalb County parks that are connected via a network of scenic hiking/biking trails. The mile-long "South Peachtree Creek" trail is the main trail linking the two parks. From there we will traverse the Medlock neighborhood towards the Clyde Shepherd Nature Preserve.

The 28-acre nature preserve features a beaver pond and abundant wildlife. We will walk less than two miles, and head back to Mason Mill Park tracing our steps.

We'll meet in the parking lot outside the restrooms of Mason Mill.  


Thank you Charlie for the photo!
