We just never get tired of hiking at Vickery Creek.  It offers so much with a variety of trails, challenging elevation changes, and beautiful views of the water along the creeks and at the dam.  We'll keep up a moderate pace through the trails on this one - - not a fitness hike, but not a leisurely stroll, either.

This is not a good hike for beginning hikers, but If you've done a variety of D2 hikes, come give it a try. It will be a good way for you to build up to those D3 hikes you've seen listed on the calendar, but were afraid to try. 

We will start on time (10:30 am)! Please plan to arrive a few minutes early to check in and do intros. There is a bathroom at this location, so allow an extra 5 minutes to use the facility before we start.  

We are meeting at the Roswell Mill entrance to the Vickery Creek trailhead, just off S. Atlanta Road in Roswell.  There is no parking fee at this location.  Detailed directions are below.

Event Directions:

Roswell Mill is 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 Roswell Mill Center. Just keep driving down the road till you get to the big parking lot at the very bottom of the long hill.  

Roswell Mill 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 or from Hwy 120)) you will be on Mill St.  Stay on Mill Street (it winds around), all the way down to the bottom of the hill.
