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

OK, fellow AOC hikers ... here we go again ... the temperatures are a bit cooler, and the Chattahoochee river trails are waiting on us.

Come and join us on the trails, starting and ending, at the Akers Drive Entrance (West Palisades) - Unit of the Chattahoochee NRA. We will hike about five miles of the trails including sections along the river as well as in the woods, first to "Devil's Race", looping back to the Rottenwood Creek, taking a short excursion back down to the river for the unit's most dramatic section. Here the river is surrounded by steep rock faces, and runs through rocky shoals and small islands of dense vegetation, we then hike back our cars.

Note: A few parts of our hike are a bit steeper and rocky. Nothing bad though.

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