A little late night after work hike. We'll start in the daylight and we'll hike through sunset and finish at dusk. We are going to move on the fast side of moderate. If there hasn't been recent rain we will cross the cliffs. If you are particularly suseptible to it then you may want to  wear pants.

Surely the massive wild magnolia is in bloom. The tree is magnificent when in bloom and it's defintely something you'll want to see.

This is not a beginner hike. Be prepared to move quickly. We've been covering roughly 5.5 miles each night.

We will start on time so please plan on arriving a few minutes early to check in and do intros. If everyone is there a few minutes early, we will depart a few minutes early.

We are meeting at the Roswell Mill entrance to the Vickery Creek trailhead and parking is free. Detailed directions are below.

Required Items to Bring:

water, gatorade or whatever you like to keep hydrated (important)
No flip flops or shoes without a backstrap please

Recommended Items to Bring:
Use our Event Checklists to make sure you have everything you need.

snacks to fuel yourself
hiking poles if you dig 'em
sunscreen/bug spray according to the season and weather
appropriate clothing

How to Get There:
Event Directions:


There are a lot of ways to get to the Roswell Mill. It's at 120 and S. Atlanta Road in Roswell. Use either the physical address below or the lat/lon coordinates to get your own directions. We are meeting behind all of the shops at the Mill. Just keep going towards the water.

We are meeting at the trailhead behind the shops of Roswell Mill. It is where Hwy 9 (S. Atlanta St) and Hwy 120 (Marietta Hwy) intersect. There's a popular restaurant called Chaplin's in that shopping center. When you turn in to the shopping center (from either direction) you will be on Mill St. - Mill St dead ends in to Mill St. (thank you Roswell) and you take a right on to Mill St which will dead end in to the parking lot.
