Georgia - Pups & Pints

This Hike is led by GWH Ambassador Cara Hurlburt-Ebeling. Bring your dog out for a fun meet and greet at Leita Thompson Memorial Park in Roswell! We will let the dogs play for a bit in the enclosed dog park and then hike the wooded trail through the park, which features a stream, lake, and hilly terrain. The dog park has 2 separate sides, for dogs of different weights/sizes. Even if you don't have a dog, we'd love to have you come along! After the hike, we will enjoy a “yappy hour” at Gate City Brewery in historic Roswell. Feel free to have your spouse, partner, and/or kids meet us at the brewery, as it's very dog and family friendly. The brewery opens at 1 pm so we will head that way after the hike. Gate Cityoften has food trucks and there are lots of other restaurants within walking distance. More info on the brewery here:
