Join SSC for our bonus and final Trail Blazers walk of the year on Saturday, November 5 at 8:30 a.m. at Island Ford Park! Island Ford, part of the Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area, features three miles of hiking trails following the wide-flowing Chattahoochee River north of Atlanta. Island Ford trails are beginner-friendly and kid-friendly and feature several large cave-like rock outcrops on a wide loop.  Located in the northeast corner of Sandy Springs, Island Ford, is home to the National Park Service historic Hewlett Lodge visitor center. The 10.4 acre park is a big draw for all types of outdoor fun, including hiking, fishing, and wildlife viewing.

Our guided walk will take an hour. Meet the group at the entrance to the visitor center. Walks are limited to 25 participants and registration is required so please sign up today!

The minimum age to participate is 10 years old, and anyone under age 18 must be accompanied by an adult. Participants must register and sign a liability waiver online.
