Oaky Woods Hiking Event

Stay tuned for news on a hike in late Feb 2014, probably 2/22/14. Email John now if you might be interested!

Save Oaky Woods founder John Trussell will be leading a free hike meeting at the Oaky Woods check station. 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 to register for the hike.

Hikers can expect to see the GA State Champion Swamp Chestnut Oak, the two beech tree carvings, (even thought they are in bad shape now), the limestone ridge where the whale bone was found, and the grave site of Abner Fluellen Redding, a leader at the 1864 battle of Griswoldville. Walking will be less than one mile for all sites and refreshments will be served. Hikers should wear appropriate hiking shoes and clothes.

The hike is free but all participants must sign a waiver of liability form and kids under 16 must be accompanied by an adult.
