Third time's a charm, they say, so we will try to avoid a third bad weather cancellation and plan for our next volunteer trail workday and hike in the Cohutta Wilderness. Join us on the beautiful Hickory Creek trail as we will be maintaining water bars for erosion control. Total round trip mileage is about 7 miles on this easy to moderate-rated trail.

What to Bring? work gloves, sturdy footwear, lunch, 1-2 liters of water, and a daypack to carry it in.

Directions:

- From Chatsworth, GA (intersection of Hwy 76 & Hwy 411), travel north on Hwy 411 for 11.8 miles to Cisco, GA.
-Turn right onto Old Hwy 2, at the Cisco Baptist Church, and go 7.8 miles.
-Turn right onto East Cowpen Rd, FS 51. There is a directional sign here for Rice Camp, East Cowpen, Hickory Creek, Horseshoe Bend Trails. If you drive past the Cottonwood Patch campground sign, you've gone too far.
-Travel on FS 51 for about 5 miles to the trailhead at the end of the road.

Note: the East Cowpen Rd makes 2 creek fords which are suitable for cars under normal conditions.

Car pooling and caravan opportunities are available. (email Robert at [masked] or Larry at [masked])

How to find us:Look for us gathering at the Rice Camp trailhead (34.9677, -84.6215) at the end of FS 51.
