Weekday Mid-Day Moderate Hike Sawnee Mountain Mountainside trail (the new trail)

This is one of our more strenuous hikes - 5 miles with over 700 feet of elevation gain. Also PLEASE READ DRIVING DIRECTIONS if you have not previously been to this part of Sawnee. If you are new to this hike, please read all of the information below regarding the distance, pacing, locations, and policies for this hike. Larry's phone number is[masked] This week's location and restaurant: Sawnee Mountain Preserve opened a new trail a couple of years ago that is more difficult than the Indian Seats trail The Mountainside trail if 5.1 miles long, and also note that this new trail has 700 feet of elevation change - so I'm calling this a "Moderate Plus" hike in terms of difficulty. This hike is a bit more strenuous than our regular hikes. Please note that we are meeting at a NEW PARKING LOT - see map link. There are actually two parking lots at the address listed. You want to turn into the new one on the South side of the road. Coming from Spot Road, the lot will be on the RIGHT, not on the left. Do NOT go to the visitor center parking lot where we usually meet! There is a restroom at the new lot. Also please remember that DOGS ARE NOT ALLOWED AT SAWNEE PRESERVE. Here is a link to a map of the new trial: http://media.wix.com/ugd/ae3094_6f4bf4faaf6448b0b5497cba6336ee44.pdf Also we will be trying a new restaurant this time - a Mexican restaurant called 7 Tequilas on Post Road: https://www.google.com/maps/place/7+Tequilas+Cantina/@34.2108089,-84.2176945,15z/data=!4m5!3m4!1s0x0:0xcc20f351d13b21b9!8m2!3d34.2036396!4d-84.2191107 Prompt Departure Policy: Out of respect for the majority of people who arrive on time, we will leave promptly at the designated time, allowing 1-2 minutes of "grace period". If you arrive late, please text or call me at[masked] and I will let you know where we are on the trail so you can catch up to the group. Are you available to hike at 11AM on Wednesdays? Looking to explore some of the nice hiking locations within an hours drive of Atlanta? Looking for a moderate-paced hike of 4 to 5 miles with friendly welcoming people? Like to optionally go out for lunch afterward? Then this is the hike for you ! What: A moderate-pace hike of about 4.5 - 5.0 miles, in about 2 hours. See below for additional detail on planned pace and degree of difficulty. When: Every Wednesday at 11AM. Where: We rotate around to 12-14 locations within 30-45 minutes of Atlanta. See below for a list of our usual venues. Who: We generally have at least 15-20 people on each hike, though we've had as many as 30+. We are a friendly group and do our best to make newcomers feel welcome. Dogs are welcome everywhere we hike except Sawnee Preserve, but are required to be on a leash at all times. Intended Difficulty/Fitness-level: The locations and trails chosen for this hike, as well as the hiking pace, are of moderate difficulty. Each hike will be between 4 and 5 miles, and we will hike that distance in about 2 hours. We will pause briefly a few times for water breaks or to catch our breath. Most of our hikes have hill climbing involved, so these are NOT Easy or Beginner hikes. So this is a moderate hike all around, of about 2.5mph pace. But this is also not intended to be a hard-core "workout" hike - if you prefer to hike very fast (e.g. 3mph or faster pace) our experience is that you will be frustrated with the pacing of this hike. Lunch afterward: While not required or expected, please join us for lunch afterward at a local restaurant. Restaurants chosen will be of moderate price level (e.g Taco Mac, Taqueria Tsunami, barbecue joints, etc.). Please consider an optional Membership donation will help us pay our Meetup expenses and continue to provide exciting new outings each month.
