Join me on a new silent hike to enjoy the sounds of nature and to focus on the "here and now". This is one of my favorite parks because it's quiet and you can walk along the river and also along a creek (though sometimes it's hidden).

The 566-acre Gwinett park, very close to Stone Mountain Park, has roughly 12 miles of trails - some hiking, some biking, some equestrian, and some mixed use.

We will be hiking approximately 5 miles, starting at the Yellow River. We will remain in the equestrian trails and take some of the biking and hiking trails to return to the parking lot. The hike will be almost enteriley silent. We will break our silence 20 minutes before we get back to the parking lot.

We will meet at the parking lot next to the pavilion and the restrooms. If we get lucky, we will see giant turtles.

Thanks Mark R. for the picture!
