This hike will include the more "backcountry" trails in the Little Mulberry Park. This trail is surprisingly steep for it's location and includes the highest point in Gwinnett county.

1. Follow the (paved) West Meadow Trail for ~0.3 miles
2. Veer left and hike around the Ravine loop
3. Turn left onto the Beech Trail
4. Turn left on the connector to the East Mulberry/Equestrian trail
5. Follow the East Mulberry trail clockise (This loop is actually 3 miles, not the 4.75 stated on the map)
6. Take the connector trail back to Beech Trail
7. Cut across the field back to cars, taking in the panoramic views from Gwinnett's highest point.
We will need to finish before sunset at 8:40pm.
