Kennesaw Mountain National Battlefield Park

Kennesaw Mountain National Battlefield Park

We will meet at the cannon in front of the park visitor center. It is located at 900 Kennesaw Mountain Dr., Kennesaw. GA. 30152. We will hike the pigeon hill loop trail. The hike is 5.4 miles and takes about 3 hours. The first half of the hike is strenuous. The second half is easy to moderate. I did hike the trail on 02/05/23. I really liked it. The views are amazing and a history lesson too. Also, mountain biking would be great from the bottom of pigeon hill to the visitor center if anyone is interested in doing it. I will only be hiking with the group. The park is very busy on weekends. So, you may have to park at the overflow lot. It is a short walk to the visitor center. Parking is $5. You will pay at the parking lot at a machine.

Indian Springs State Park

Indian Springs State Park

We will meet in the parking lot area near the stone wall. (North entrance looking on a map- State Park fee or pass needed).The hike will be around 8+ miles round trip. We can meet for lunch after the hike- a favorite place seems to be Yahola Creek. Dogs are welcome to come but, they must be on a leash.

As a courtesy always stay with in sight of your hike leader. Make sure at every crossing people know which way we are going .. we all need to be safety minded and make sure people can get help if they should need it.

It's bug spray season now so remember that and sunscreen and water etc.

State Botanical Garden of Georgia

State Botanical Garden of Georgia Visitor Center

We will meet at 11am at the entrance to the garden. Parking and admission are free. We will walk the white trail and others around the garden. The white trail does follow the Middle Oconee River for a little way. I have hiked all the trails in the garden. It is very nice but, there are some hills. You can visit their website for more information and see the trail map. No pets are allowed in the garden. The address is 2450 S. Milledge Ave., Athens, GA. 30605

Lunch & Sprewel Bluff hike

Sprewell Bluff Park

Bring your light lunch and a snack to share and we'll eat on the deck across from the trading Post before we hike. Park at the trading post and be ready to hike at 1 pm, if not joining us for picnic lunch. Sprewell Bluff hike around 7 miles down Widow Maker and back around pink and orange trails. We will go slower so everyone can do this 7 miles.

Please be courteous and keep your hike leader in sight at all times and make sure that no one is lagging behind and does not know where we are turning.

bring bug spray and water and hat and sunscreen.
