Note: This is an "EXPLORATORY" trip. This means that there are parts of this trip, or perhaps the whole trip, that is new to your Trip Leader(s). However, they are confident that this will not be an issue.
This note is here so that you can make an informed decision. When a Trip Leader isn't personally familiar with a trip, there is an increased chance of things not going as planned and you need to be prepared. The Trip Leader may have additional details in the itinerary.
This Gwinnett park is very close to Stone Mountain Park, and some stretches go along the Yellow River. The 566-acre park has roughly 12 miles of trails - some hiking, some biking, some equestrian, and some mixed use.
We will be hiking approximately 5 miles, starting at the Yellow River. We will remain in the equestrian trails and take some of the biking and hiking trails to return to the parking lot. I have hiked this park a couple of times; we will not get lost, but we might end up hiking more miles, or a shorter route.
We will meet at the parking lot next to the pavilion and the restrooms. Although this is not a "silent hike", there is a sign encouraging not making too much noise. If we get lucky, we will see big turtles.
Thanks Mark R. for the picture and the research!
