Group Hike – ATLANTA! – Sweetwater Creek

RSVP on facebook or on the form at the bottom. It is super important I know who is coming!
Unlikely Hikers creates safer, supportive outdoor community for people underrepresented in outdoors culture. We hike together as a group. No hiker left behind! Absolutely no diet or weight loss talk. Be mindful of gender pronouns, group dynamics, microaggressions, cultural appropriation and different physical ability levels.

HEY HEY ATLANTA! Y’all, I know it’s going to be SO HOT, but we are doing this!

Huge thanks to REI for making this happen! They are sponsoring the hike AND providing SNACKS. And no, it won’t be some energy bar or freeze-dried scenario.

LOCATION: Sweetwater Creek State Park (Lithia Springs)

TIME: 8am (Gotta get a leg up on that heat!)

TRAIL STATS: less than 3 miles, less than 200 ft. elevation gain, loop. We will be doing a variation of this trail: https://www.atlantatrails.com/hiking-trails/sweetwater-creek-hiking-the-red-trail/ (includes GPS parking coordinates, which I’ll verify the day before our hike!)

PARKING: Fairly certain it’s $5! Carpool talk on FB invite.

MEETING SPOT: Interpretive Center

DOGS & KIDS: Low drama dogs are welcome. Kids are welcome, but I can’t promise kid-appropriate conversations within a group of adults.

BEFORE JOINING ONE OF OUR GROUP HIKES:

We want you to to have the most fun and supportive experience possible! Ask yourself, “how does my body like to hike?” No hike is “one size fits all” and choosing the wrong trail could potentially harm you. What is your ideal mileage? Elevation gain? Feel free to ask any questions if you don’t know what some of this means. Beginners are so welcome! xo

RSVP on facebook or on this form. It is super important I know who is coming! NOTE: You will only hear from me if something changes.
