This loop follows a number of trails on Powers Island, the banks of the Chattahoochee, and the bluffs overlooking it.. The walking distance is about 3 miles.

Recommended Items to Bring:
Use our Event Checklists to make sure you have everything you need.
Good hiking shoes, plenty of water and insect repellent.

How to Get There:
Event Directions:From downtown Atlanta drive north on I-75 to I-285. Take a right on I-285 to Exit 22. Turn left, cross over the interstate and follow Interstate Parkway North, which curves around to the left. The parking lot will be about 0.8 miles down the road on your right, just before the Chattahoochee River. If you cross the Chattahoochee you will get to the main Cochran Shoals area, which is the wrong place.

-There is some poison ivy near the trail, so shorts are not recommended. Sunset occurs at around 8:40 PM.
* We encourage all members to follow our Etiquette Guidelines while participating in AOC events.

Cost Includes:The parking fee is $3.00 per car.
