Hike the Origins of

Chattahochee National Recreation Area

CRNA.jpg

 Andy 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.

"Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop off like autumn leaves."
