We will be meeting at the Indian Trail entrance NOT Whitewater Creek. Again, Indian Trail.
Trena will be leading the hike. Libby will be sweeping.
From the parking area, the trail enters the woods beside an information board, steadily descending to the southwest toward the river floodplain. A short distance ahead, note the fading ruins of buildings to the right of the trail, evidence of long vanished homes slowly being reclaimed by nature. This unit of the Chattahoochee River offers a taste of rugged beauty from high, heavily wooded ridges above the water to sandy, lushly carpeted floodplains lines with ferns and willows.
