A casual meet-up for those who want to hike / explore the trails mostly in the area of Newton County Georgia.
This is meant to be a casual hiking group specifically aimed at those in the general area of Newton County, Georgia that would like to hike the area's trails but are unfamiliar with them or would prefer to be part of a group. Also, the group will provide a venue for people who live in or near the area to meet others who are interested in hiking. Though Nature Photography is not the focus of this group, it will be expected and indulged to a point. There will be plenty of opportunity for quick snapshots on the hikes. However, no tripods will be allowed due to the time and trail space constraints.
Joining and participation in the group are free. However, many sites (State Parks, Wildlife Management Areas, County Parks, and such) do have a "Use Fee" that needs to be paid by each participating member for that event.
Children that are accustomed to hiking are welcome. Pets are not allowed due to their possible disruptive influence on a general hike.
All members / participants will be "on their own recognizance" of good behavior and judgement as to their safety and ability. Be sure to wear good hiking footwear, and definitely do not wear sandals or dress-shoes - hiking boots are recommended!
New members must be approved by the Organizer
