    6 months ago

    This is an excellent Hike to Dukes Creek Falls with a well marked trail. This is in the Chattahoochee National Forest and you have to pay to park. However, if you have a golden pass or senior lifetime pass, here is not cost. Just be sure to bring a pencil to fill out the registration.

    The Hike is short but steep along a paved trail. It is all up and only down as you return. The falls are worth it. By the way, if you have a National parks pass, the admission is free.

    Fred Searcy reviewed Mount Yonah Trail

    6 months ago

    For an excellent description of the Hike Google Mount Yonah for Atlanta Trails. They give you specific sites with mileage.

    Some describe this a hard or moderately strenuous. I concur. From the trailhead you begin to ascend and you continue to ascend except for one small descend after the stone steps.

    I’m 69 and I admit it was a challenging Hike but well worth the effort. According to my GPS, I made the climb in a little over 2 hours with numerous short rests.

    As usual, the descent took a toll on my hips and knees but not anything I couldn’t cope with.

    The day was perfect for hiking with the temperature around 50F.

    Be sure to take plenty of water even on cool days and wear a good pair of boots. The trail is rocky. I also recommend a walking stick for balance.

    Fred Searcy reviewed Avalanche Lake via the Trail of the Cedars

    over 1 year ago

    This is considered the most popular trail in Glacier and I certainly understand why. You are walking through a temperate rainforest while walking past Avalanche Gorge, Avalanche acreek and finally, to the end of Avalanche Lake. Be sure to make the effort to go to the far end of the lake, it has a more attractive view.

    Be sure to take some water and a lunch to enjoy at the lake.

    A nice, easy trail with great views of giant redwoods. It is a thoroughly shaded hike along side a meadow. I hiked in September and there was a lack of wildflowers but I'm sure the meadow in the spring is spectacular.

    Fred Searcy reviewed General Grant Loop Trail

    almost 2 years ago

    Perhaps more fascinating than the General Grant, the second largest tree in the world (the a General Sherman is the first) is the hollowed out, downed redwood you can walk through which gives you a little perspective as the the size of these trees.

    The hike down is easy, the hike back up a little challenging but there are plenty of benches and rest stops along the way so you can enjoy the largest tree on earth.

    You climb 400 steps to a breathtaking vista. Take it slow and easy. If the have a fear of heights, this is not the trail for you but if not, the rewards are great. The park tells you not to climb when snowy or icy and when thunder clues are near. You are totally exposed at the top. This is a great climb!
