Hike with the AOC Member Ambassadors … Libby and Lemmy.  Tell us all what you like (and maybe what suggestions you have) about the AOC.

Come and join us on the trails at Whitewater Creek (East Palisades) - Unit of the Chattahoochee NRA. The East Palisades is surrounded by some of the Georgia's wealthiest homes. We meet at the entrance "Whitewater Trail" and then hike along the shore and "over the hills and far away" until the Overlook. From there to the "The Devil's Race Course Shoals", which were named by early river boatmen because the shoals were the "devil" to navigate, continuing to the only "Bamboo Forest" in Atlanta ... and then back.

Note:  This is a "rain or shine hike", i.e. dress appropriately. We will of course not hike if there are thunderstorms likely.

If you have any questions e-mail the Event Coordinator.
