June 6th- (Sub)Urban hike along the Chattahoochee River

The oppressive heat and humidity of summer is fast approaching and due to overwhelming demand from our urban hikers we will NOT be hiking around the hardscapes of the city, but instead venturing out to the trails of our closest national park- Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area- for a moderate 5-6 mile hike with a stop halfway to dip our toes in the river.

On Saturday, June 6th meet us at Park Grounds in Reynoldstown at 10am as we drink coffee and set up carpools to venture to the WhiteWater Creek trailhead in the East Palisades park unit of the Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area.

We'll meet at 10am and head out by 10:30/10:45 for the river with our carpool caravan. Head to the connector and go north, then directions are as follows:

-Stay on I-75 North
-Take exit 256, Mt. Paran Road.
-Right on Mt. Paran Road to first traffic light (Harris Trail)
-Left on Harris Trail to Whitewater Creek Road
-Right about .4 miles to the unit which is on the left.

If you plan to just meet us at the trailhead, then you can find alternate directions here.

Here's a map of the trail system we'll be exploring:
