Georgia - James E. Edmond Trail

This hike event is led by Ambassadors Rhiannon Bradley and Amy Henson.

Come join Ambassadors Rhiannon Bradley and Amy Henson as they lead a hike down the beautiful James E. Edmond trail in Blackrock Mountain State Park. We will be meeting at the trailhead at 8:00am and beginning the hike at 8:30am. Please make sure to dress in layers and bring trekking poles and rain gear because the weather in mountains constalntly changes! Also in addition to a nutrient dense snack also plan on brining a lunch since this is a longer hike. If anyone isnt too worn out from the hike we could head into Clayton for post hike beers at Universal Joint and visit the Wander North Georgia Store.
