Keeping up the tradition for Ann and Ralph,  the Vickery Creek/Oxbo hike continues!  We'll be starting the hike promptly at 6 pm to allow folks to navigate through after-work traffic.  Please arrive 10 minutes early so that we can get started on time. 

The Vickery Creek section of the Chattahooche National Recreation Area contains many miles of interconnected hiking trails. Our plan is to hike about five miles miles of these trails which include some sections of rocks and roots as well as some easy-to-maneuver sections.

This will be a fast paced hike.  Fast hiking, not trail running. This is not a hike for beginners or for folks who can't handle a fast pace on hilly, often rocky terrain.  If you're new to the AOC or haven't done any fast D3's, I may call you to check on your ability to handle the hike.  I won't leave anyone behind, so we will have to slow down the pace if someone can't keep up. 

We are starting and parking on Oxbo Road.  The lot is ON Oxbo Rd. (Not the lot in the Waller extention area.)  It is free to park at the Oxbo lot! Directions below.

Required Items to Bring:

Shoes you can hike in
Clothing appropriate for weather conditions

Recommended Items to Bring:
