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.
We will gather at the Hitchiti Trail head and hike in a couple of miles following Falling Creek and the Ocmulgee River. Once we make it to the rock outcrops near the river, we will take a one hour break. At that time you can HANG in the hammock you bring or HANG around socializing in a safe manner.
This will also be a great time to enjoy a lunch break or relax with a nice snack.
After our break, we will then hike out returning the way we came.
So bring a hammock if you have one or a light-weight chair and lunch or a snack. I guess there is a good chance you could just sit on a log or stand around if you don't have any of those but if you are not into chilling, you could explore the rock outcrops or enjoy the flow of the Ocmulgee River.
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..
