Hike along a beautiful cascading creek through a beautiful ravine rich with history and legends !
Bring your lunch, some trail snacks and some water in a small day pack (book bag) - for this easy to moderate rated 5 mile hike of the Raven Cliffs Falls Trail just outside Helen, GA. (2.5 mile in & out hike - so it's 5 miles total)
The beautiful hike features walking besides the sparkling waters of Dukes Creek - and the serenity of the sounds of waterfalls fills the entire day.
It's about a 1.5 hour drive for most folks within the perimeter area of Atlanta (see Google Maps link below to Meetup location below to "JUMPING GOAT COFFEE ROASTERS" in Helen, GA). No special gear or clothing is necessary - but if you have a rain-poncho to put into your day pack - it's always a good idea in the mountains!
The cost of the trip is $20. If you are not a member - click on "Join Us" to the upper right of the page - and then RSVP for the trip. It will direct you as per credit card or PayPal payment methods.
IN ADDITION - AFTER THE HIKE - WE WILL CARAVAN BACK TO HELEN TO HAVE AN OPTIONAL DINNER SOCIAL AT A CLASSIC BAVARIAN EATERY IN HELEN - "THE OLD BAVARIAN INN".
(Note: Please be aware that you are responsible for your own safety on your Appalachian Wilderness Hikers Meetup Trip - and our sponsor requires that you sign a release of liability
