Chattahoochee National Recreation Area
Cochran Shoals Unit, Gunby Creek Loop Trail
Wednesday; June 6, 2009
10:00 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.
Description: Join National Park Service Ranger for a walk through a beautiful hardwood forest amidst native ferns, flowering shrubs, and wildflowers. Learn facts and a fable or two about Native American and Colonial uses of some of our wonderful native plants. Imagine this area as farm fields instead of forest as we walk along the traces of nineteenth century farm roads. Look for paw prints of the many species of wildlife that thrive here and perhaps see a salamander or two from the tiny tributaries.
Location: We will meet at the parking area bulletin board; 2080 Interstate North Parkway, Atlanta, Georgia 30339, Cobb County
Facilities: At parking area
Difficulty: Moderate. We will hike along the fitness trail, across the boardwalk, and cross over the two ridges separating the two forks of Gunby Creek
Bring: Remember to dress for the weather and wear very comfortable hiking shoes. Dress in layers so that you can adjust to changes in the temperature and your activity level. You may wish to bring binoculars, hand lens, notebook, and camera.
