   We will gather in the gravel parking lot behind the Elachee Nature Center at 6pm. We will start the hike no later than 6:10 to ensure that we are able to complete the trail by dark.

  The group will hike the 4.5 mile loop down to the beautiful Chicopee Lake ending back at the the parking lot. We will have the option to add an additional 1 mile loop hike on the Elachee Creek and Dodd trails, if time permits and the group is interested.


  More information on the Elachee Nature center and it's trails can be found here:


 Located in the 1,400-acre Chicopee Woods Nature Preserve in North Georgia, Elachee is celebrating more than 30 years of building environmental literacy for Georgians through quality educational experiences, museum exhibitions, special programs, and resources for schools and the general public.
