CITY HIKING ON THE CHATTAHOOCHEE RIVER

I woke up over the weekend wanting to take advantage of the last bit of warm weather before the next cold front came in.  I have seen plenty of people posting great photos of their day hikes on my social media pages and thought that a hike close to town would be the best way to enjoy the weather.  After doing a bit of googling, I settled on the EAST PALISADES TRAIL just north of the city. The hike is just about 4 miles and has some great views of the Chattahoochee River.
There is a $3 park fee for the day and parking is readily available right at the trail head.  We had a great time enjoying the trail, and the lookout point that stands tall above the Chattahoochee River.  The fact that fun and tranquil hikes are just a fifteen minute drive from our house is another reason why I am loving living in Atlanta.  There are so many hikes that are within and hours drive of the city and Wes and I plan on taking advantage of all of them on weekends when the weather is nice *fingers crossed that the warm weather comes back soon* This particular hike had a fair amount of traffic so if you aren't looking for quite so many trail buddies you might want to look a bit further out, possibly over at the INDIAN SEATS TRAIL just under an hour outside of the city.  If you have any suggestions of trails I should check out be sure to let me know!  I will be sure to take my camera along for the next day trip we plan.
