Sope Creek

About The Trail: This is a very easy hike with hardly any elevation gain. The hike is six to eight miles long and should take about 2 hours; no special equipment needed, but do bring a little water and a snack. FYI, we'll meet at the pay station in the parking lot at the end of Columns Drive (essentially, you take a left onto Columns after crossing the Chattachoochie River, and drive approx 2 1/2 miles to the end of the road to the parking lot/trailhead). See you there!

Carpool: I will run one carpool from the Best Buy in Alpharetta (located at Haynes Bridge Road and GA 400 Exit 9). Please meet to the left of the store by 10:15am. If you'd like to carpool with me, please email me by the night before the event to reserve your spot. BTW, I drive a white Toyota Sequoia.

    Was a wonderful hike through the mountain and lots of people to c and lots of twists and turns. Hiked through most of the park and went through the outer side of the park where I saw some deer and a owl on the way back. though the outer trail was over grown it was still a great hike to do today. Saw a row of ducks on a tree near the river and seeing the river was great to.

    I need to leave at 9am if I'm going. But I need to know if 1950 Roswell Road is the right address. I'm seeing different addresses on these comments. Can u please let me know by 8:30 am? That's what time I'm getting up. If I don't see nothing I'm goin back to sleep. Please let me know I want to hike with others. Thank you

    What's the parking situation at the trailhead? I notice there's a lot of people coming.

    Columns Dr. Is this the main entrance where the paved walk is that goes in a circle. Just off Johnson Ferry. If so I think this is Marietta.
