2014 John Muir Outing: Origins Hike, Chattahoochee National Recreation Area Chattahochee National Recreation Area- East Palisades
Hike the Origins of
Chattahochee National Recreation Area
Mycroft and Roger Buerki will lead this 3.4-mile moderate hike in the East
Palisades Unit of the CRNA. Roger, a long-time
Sierran who helped to create the legislation providing for the CRNA, our local
"wilderness" gem, will narrate history and interesting attributes of
the CNRA. The hike includes high overlooks of the Chattahoochee River, visiting
mill ruins and a bamboo forest. The trail crosses wooden bridges over Charlie’s
Trapping Creek and Cabin Creek and affords views of the angular shoals of the
Chattahoochee’s riverbed. A portion of the trail follows the bottom of
the “palisades” (a line of high cliffs) from which this area gets its name. Parking
requires a NPS pass or $3.
Time: 10:00 AM - 2:00 PM
Address: East Palisades- CRNA 1385 Indian Trail NW Atlanta, GA 30327
