Winter Tree Walk, Sweetwater Creek State Park

January 29 @ 9:00 am - 12:30 pm

Only half an hour west of Atlanta lies Sweetwater Creek State Park, hosting 15 miles of trails and its namesake, Sweetwater Creek, which should truly be considered a river for its size and character. This creek joins the Chattahoochee River just downstream from the park boundary. We’ll take one of the paths less traveled to enjoy a range of ecosystems and native trees – from beaver-chewed Sweetgums and Sweetleaf in the floodplains, to old growth Chestnut Oak and Hickories on the ridges. Winter is a great season for learning to identify trees by their bark patterns and growth forms. The trail we’ll walk has a high diversity of tree species native to the Georgia Piedmont.

We’ll walk approximately 3.5 miles on well-used natural trails. Parts of the trail are fairly flat along the creek, with some sections climbing and descending moderate hills, a few with steeper slopes.
