Leader: Marie Dunkle 

Outing Description: This will be about a 6-mile moderate hike with variety terrain. It includes several water crossings where you will need to get through water above boot level, so be prepared with extra shoes for the crossing. Stonewall Falls is a beautiful setting in a National Forest. The trail is designated for mountain biking, but there are few bikes, and it's great for hikers. We will explore, stop and eat lunch along the way, and the hike should last about 4 hours. This is a dog-friendly hike.

Meeting Time and Place: Meet at 9:30am at the Tiger Mart on Old Hwy 441 in Tiger, GA. We will carpool to the trailhead.

Directions: Coming from Atlanta, head north on 85 to north 985 and continue onto north 23 to north 441. Follow toward Clayton, GA. Before Clayton, turn left at the Tiger Connector (see Goats on a Roof store at intersection) and follow to intersection with Old Hwy 441. See Tiger Mart at intersection. For a Google map, click here
