Georgia - Sawnee Mountain Sunrise

This event is led by Girls Who Hike GA Ambassador Cara Hurlburt-Ebeling. Please read the entire event description to catch all important details. Rise and Shine GHWGA! Get your weekend started right with a sunrise hike at Sawnee Mountain Preserve. We will meet at 6 am and start hiking promptly by 6:10 am, with sunrise slated for 6:56 am. We'll hike the “short trail” (approximately .75 miles) up from the Bettis Tribble Gap parking lot and catch sunrise on the namesake “Indian Seat” rock formations. After taking in sunrise and the beautiful morning golden hour, we'll take a longer route back down to the parking lot to get a little extra exercise. Total hike mileage will be around 3.45 miles, with the majority being descent. Please bring a headlamp for the hike up. Trekking poles may also be beneficial for hiking in the dark. While the Indian Seats does not have direct Eastern exposure, sunrise here is very beautiful, with mist in the valley below and golden rays highlighting the trees and rocks.

Georgia - Bartram Trail to Pinnacle Knob

This hike event is led by Ambassadors Rhiannon Bradley and Cara Hurlburt-Ebeling.

Come join Ambassadors Rhiannon Bradley and Cara Hurlburt-Ebeling as they join forces and lead a hike down the Bartram Trail from Warwomen Dell to Pinnacle Knob. 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 constantly changes!

***IMPORTANT MESSAGE RE-GUARDING PACING: We will be maintaining a pace of 2-2.5. Inorder to ensure that you can manage this pace, I recommend referring to your own pace from previous hikes. If a 5-7 mile hike took 5+ hours, your pace is closer to 1 mph and may not be suited to this hike. 

Also in addition to a nurtriet dense snack also plan on bringing 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.
