June National Trails Service Day Hike 

Sweetwater Creek State Park  

FREE EVENT Sponsored by REI

For the past several years we have participated with one of our partners, REI, for the Sweetwater Creek Bank (w/Kay)American Hiking Society's National Trails Day event by helping to beautify local trails. For 2013, we'll be participating with the Sweetwater Creek project.   


The project will actually start at 8:30a.m. Lunch is at 12:30p.m. -1:00p.m..  The first 200 registered will get shirts (bright blue this year).  Please register here for the service project, and so you can get your shirt. They will send you a welcome email a few days before, and also capture any dietary restrictions. 

BONUS THIS YEAR: REI Outdoor School will be hosting Free Kayaking and Stand Up Paddling Classes (mini sessions) after the project from 1-3PM.

There is a very small 'free' parking lot, and there is parking across the road at the State Park, for $5.00.  Don't forget, you can go to your local library, use your library card  and 'check out,' as you would a book, a Georgia State Parks, Parking Pass.  Sometimes they go pretty fast, so you may want to check up front and reserve it for pick-up. 

Simply bring a smile and a friendly disposition, and you are guarantee to have a wonderful outing in the wilderness... WOW! As always, wear sturdy shoes or hiking boots (please, no new shoes or boots...you will be sorry...break them in first!), and of course comfortable layered, clothing.   

Don't forget the Leave No Trace principles to which we adhere... what you carry in, you carry out, with the exception of taking your memories of the adventure, your new friendships, and of course, any photos you may take.

Remember... we car pool and each rider is asked to donate $5 - $10 toward gas.  

Feel free to contact me by return email or telephone at 678.231.4973 should you have any questions.
