L H Thomson Company specializes in making titanium parts for aircraft, bicycles and bicycle components. At the rear of the property is a patch of woods with a twisty windy bicycle trail running through it.
Brian will be hosting this HIKING event.
Our hike will be a pretty easy hike that is just under 5 miles. The trail is a dirt path with lots of roots. The trail is not flat but at the same time doesn't have any real significant grades to worry about.
Be sure to bring your usual personal items such as water, bug spray, and sun screen.
Typically they have a porta potty available but it has been a couple of months since I visited this trail so no promises.
As you pull in at Thomson, the parking will be on the right side of the building in the back corner. They work on Saturday so please don't park in the spots near the building.
Dogs on leashes are allowed
We will start at 9 AM sharp.
Let's do a cleanup of our own this weekend at Amerson River Park in Macon. Meet at the parking area by the playground and bathrooms at 9 am. We will walk the trails and pick up trash as we go. Hopefully rain will hold off till we're done.
Wear clothes and shoes you don't mind getting dirty/muddy.
Sprewell Bluff Hiking trails. This was previously a State Park but is now designated as a County park. There are 8.2 miles of trails at this park. Plan on this hike being 6-8 miles. Park Info: Undammed for nearly two hundred miles until Lake Blackshear near Cordele, the Flint River is one of central and south Georgia's most beautiful large rivers, flowing through several swamps from its headwaters in metro Atlanta. One of the highlights of the river is Sprewell Bluff, a 150-foot bluff towering above the Flint near Thomaston. Other hills and bluffs form a surprisingly narrow and deep gorge on the Flint River in the next few miles upstream.
