What better reason to celebrate than the return of Twinkies? That's right - they're hitting the shelves again on Monday, July 15. We'll take to the trails of Vickery Creek and move it move it for a fast paced hike of around 3.5 miles. We figure we should burn 350 or so calories and will surely offset the 150 calorie Twinkie at the end. Your TL's will search high and low on Monday for a box or two of Twinkies to bring to the hike.
Please bring a headlamp or flashlight. We'll start in the daylight and we'll hike through sunset and finish at dusk. If there hasn't been recent rain we will cross the cliffs. If you are particularly suseptible to posion ivy you may want to wear pants.
This is not a beginner hike. We will be moving at a fast pace.
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.
|How to Get There:|
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. and you take a right on to Mill St which will dead end in to the parking lot.
