Meet at 6:30, we'll start at 6:35. Afterhike PICNIC! Great tables right near the parking area! Remember park rules RE spirits.
We will park in the area around the metal barn near the public gardens. Feel free to park on the grass next to the road. To get to the barn, continue to drive past the dog park, turn left and continue past the tennis courts. Here is a pic:
There will be two options for the walk:
For the more sane there will be the loop to the old parking lot. This is mostly pavement
For those of weaker minds there is the "Boy Scout" trial with an uphill gain of 400 ft in about half a mile. Long pants and sturdy shoes are suggested for this trail.
Directions : Take Hwy. 153 North. At the second traffic light past the Chickamauga Dam, turn right onto Hamill Road and go past the hospital. Follow Hamill Road to just over the North Chickamauga Creek bridge and turn to the right across from the entrance to Bethel Bible Village .
I may cancel if the weather gets "real" bad. If so, I will amend this listing and put "CANCELED" in the heading.
If you have questions or want my phone number, email me at [masked]. Put HIKE in the subject.
