35UP! Roswell's Covered Bridge "Fall BOUTIQUE" B4 Chaplins' Patio Dining!

Hello Fellow Trail Boogie'in Hounds:

Join your 35Up & Mingling in Atlanta MeetUp friends in the heart of Roswell, at the Covered Bridge Trailhead for Vickery Creek (w/2  restrooms).

We are going to do 5 miles, in preparation for transitioning into our pre-Thanksgiving bootie!  & of course, we will be watching closely for Vickery's Great Blue Heron along this beautiful creek feed into the Chattahoochee.  35Up's trail scoot & Great Blue Heron search will begin at Vickery’s beautiful Covered Bridge, and with the exception of a few short steep stretches alongside the creek-ravine bluffs and gorges, the terrain is fairly level. (Easy Level D-2,)  We will include a stop at the spillway dam, which fed the mill wheel in a factory downstream. Supplying textiles for Confederate uniforms, the mill was a primary target for Gen. William Sherman whose troops destroyed the facility during the Civil War. The trails along Big Creek are very scenic with the sound of a rushing mountain creek and waterfall. The search will be led by Memphis Russ, a seasoned explorer with intimate knowledge of the Vickery Creek Trials.


**Please try to arrive by 1:45 so we can start the hike at 2:00 - we will start hiking at 2:00 on the dot :)

..~~ Hwy. 120 from Marietta to Roswell, crosses Atlanta Street, in Roswell, to become Mill Street. Follow Mill Street down the hill, as far as you can go.  You'll see our covered bridge parking lot & trailhead sign.

- Bring water, camera & a trail snack
- Suggestion: ankle protecting trail shoes
- Dogs-teenagers & up-OK
- Kids-on a leash & bringing up the rear

Following the hike, we will scoot up the hill for an early patio, healthy dinner at 5:00 p.m. at:

    Sam,
    I apologize for not saying from where!!! I am in Brookhaven, 141/Ashford Dunwoody.
    Don't think this would be a good fit this time.
    Thanks for trying! See you there.
