Oaky Woods Hiking Event
Our next hike is scheduled for February 22, 2015 at 1:00pm.
Save Oaky Woods founder John Trussell will be leading a free hike meeting at the corner of HWY 247 and Oaky Woods Road on Sunday 2/22/15 at 1pm. A steady rain would cancel the event, but call 478-957-7411 for latest update that morning if in doubt. Interested persons should either call him at 478-953-9320 or email him at John@trussell.org to register for the hike.
Hikers can expect to see two GA State Champion trees, the limestone/fossil ridge where the whale bone was found, and the old moonshine still. Walking will be less than 1.5 miles for all sites . Hikers should wear appropriate hiking shoes and clothes. The terrain is unlevel and hilly, but not difficult. If you have mobility or serious health issues, you should NOT go on this hike.
The hike is free but all participants must sign a waiver of liability form and kids under 16 must be accompanied by an adult.
