East Palisades is very popular trail among hikers, runners, and outdoor enthusiasts who want access to the river.

Come join us as we lead a group along the Chattahoochee river, through the woods for a loop hike, and back to the cars for an optional "bring your own picnic dinner" after the hike.

We are going to hike about five miles of trail and keep a moderate pace.  This should take us no more than 2 hours max

Please remember to bring $3 cash for the National Park Service parking fee, unless you have a Chattahoochee NRA annual pass.

Please Note:

Paula will be bringing her "socially challenged" Boston Terrier, Princess Charlie. Don't let that scare you though. He's a true sweetheart that loves people... Just a bit challenged around other dogs and especially ones off leash.  We are allowing two more dogs to join this event.  Per CRNA park rules, owners MUST keep their dogs on a leash and clean up after their pets. We'll take the first two people that register stating you are bringing a dog.

Required Items to Bring:

- Good attitude
- Water — at least 2 liters
- Hiking boots or shoes

Recommended Items to Bring:

Picnic dinner for after the hike. It's optional.
