This is a trail running event on hilly terrain. We will walk a little bit around the bluffs portion however. We'll cover ~5 miles in 1 hour and 15 minutes(or less).
This trail run skirts an outer loop of the trails going in a clockwise direction, so after crossing over Big Creek, we hang a left immediately after the bridge and keep to the outer loop. But you just can't take every left turn to stay on the outer loop, so be mindful of our turns.
|How to Get There:|
We well meet at the trail head parking
area off of Dobbs Drive which is off of Oxbo Road. Turn onto Dobbs Drive
off of Oxbo, then go up the hill. Soon you will come to a parking area on the
right that has a few spaces for day users of the trail. Don't go all the way to the fields. The parking spaces are
beside a building.
From GA 400: Get off
at Holcomb Bridge Road GA 140 and head west towards Roswell. Take a
left at the first redlight which is Dogwood Road (there is a Krystal there).
Take a right at the first redlight which is Grimes Bridge Road. After
crossing the bridge over Big Creek (aka Vickery Creek here) take a left at
the redlight which is Oxbo Road. Take a right onto Dobbs Drive, head up
the hill and look for the Pedestrian Bridge Parking sign on the right near the
top of the hill.
From GA 9: Heading
north in GA 9 (aka South Atlanta Street), pass GA 120 (aka Marietta
Highway) then watch for Oxbo Road on the right at a Chevron station.
Take a left onto Dobbs Drive, head up the
hill and look for the Pedestrian Bridge Parking sign on the right near the top
of the hill, the entrance is just past the building. Park in front of the building
near the fenced in area.
