Welcome to Macon Outdoors! We are a group of fun, friendly & active members that love outdoor activities such as hiking, biking, caving, rapelling, camping & paddling throughout beautiful Middle Georgia.
Meet at entrance 5 on Tucker Road. Look for the first big parking lot on the right.. The Wesleyan busses are usually parked in this parking lot. Wesleyan College has several miles of nature trails winding through the woods. Creeks, ridges and Lake trails make up a 2-mile loop. We will plan to do two loops.
Section Hike - FDR's Pine Mountain Trail - Section 2 of 5
Pine Mountain Trail is a 23 mile trail. Because most people are not interested in that long of a distance, more than 17 extra miles were added, creating many loops and parking areas so hikers with different abilities could enjoy the trail in numerous ways. Our goal is to hike all of Pine Mountain Trail and all of the loop and nature trails in the system.
This hike is the second of five section hikes at FDR's Pine Mountain Trail. This section will start at the FDR Park Office. We will then hike the Long Leaf Loop trail with the Mountain Creek Nature Trail loop sandwiched between.
We will gather at the FDR Park Office and start our hike at 10:00 AM. Show a little early to visit their restrooms and gift shop and take part in introductions.
The park office is always busy so please don't park in any of the prime parking spaces. Parking is $5 for a day pass or free if you have a valid Georgia State Park pass.
The hike is estimated at 8.5 miles so make sure that you are fit for that distance and to bring water, snacks, and other health and safety items.
