35UP!Roswell's Vickery Creek "Fall BOOTIE Trim Scoot" B4 Chaplins' Patio Dining!

Hello Fellow Trail Boogie'in Hounds:

Join your 35Up friends in the heart of Roswell, at the Covered Bridge Trailhead for Vickery Creek (w/2 new restrooms).   We are going to do 5 miles, in order to reduce our bootie in preparation for transitioning into our Thanksgiving bootie!  & of course, we will be watching closely for Vickery's Great Blue Heron along this beautiful creek feed into the Chattahoochee.  35Up's trail scoot & Great Blue Heron search will begin at Vickery’s beautiful Covered Bridge, and with the exception of a few short steep stretches alongside the creek-ravine bluffs and gorges, the terrain is fairly level. (Easy Level D-2,)  We will include a stop at the spillway dam, which fed the mill wheel in a factory downstream. Supplying textiles for Confederate uniforms, the mill was a primary target for Gen. William Sherman whose troops destroyed the facility during the Civil War. The trails along Big Creek are very scenic with the sound of a rushing mountain creek and waterfall. The search will be led by Memphis Russ, a seasoned explorer with intimate knowledge of the Vickery Creek Trials.


**Please try to arrive by 1:45 so we can start the hike at 2:00 - we will start hiking at 2:00 on the dot :)

..~~ Hwy. 120 from Marietta to Roswell, crosses Atlanta Street, in Roswell, to become Mill Street. Follow Mill Street down the hill, as far as you can go.  You'll see our covered bridge parking lot & trailhead sign.

    the cliffs are the most amazing hidden treasure in Roswell ... you have to remind yourself that you are not in the mountains. sacred ground for me for at least 20 years.

    Wow 80. Russ, you have a megaphone by any chance?

    For anyone interested who hasn't seen the waterfall in Roswell, here's an 'unlisted'(and unused) clip of mine from a shoot where I did a scene there for my first short drama in 2009.

    The waterflow was down quite a bit the next time I was there but was able to get a good look at the stonework that makes up the spillway. Hopefully on our hike it will be somewhere between.
