Our hike on January 15th at High Falls State Park has been cancelled due to the large amount of rainfall and possibility of flooding in the area.
Plan to meet at 9:00 a.m. in the Parking Lot at Mayfield Ace Hardware (on Elm Street in Covington). We have permission to park there -- but please park at the bottom of their lot close to Walgreen's.
If you prefer, meet us at the location below.
After the hike we will eat at Ole Rudy's Bar-B-Que, 2831 Jackson, GA.
