Gps sends you to various places in its attempt to find this parking lot. IMPORTANT NOTE: GO 1.2 MILES ON JARRELL PLANTATION ROAD AFTER TURNING OFF OF HWY 18. Small parking lot on right. We will explore a new portion of the trail loop that has recently been rerouted and blazed. This portion of the trail had been washed out a while back from major flooding. This portion continues down the Ocmulgee River from the point we have been turning around. This is a circular trail down to the Ocmulgee River and back. Very nice, secluded trail hike. The Hitchiti Trail is part of the Ernst Brender Demonstration Forest. It is a woodland trail that traverses a variety of woodland areas, granite outcrops, and several stream and river views. 4 mile loop trail with white blazes. During the summer and fall, ticks can be bad on this trail. Please read the information at the trailhead and sign-in on the hiker's logbook.
