S.K.I.H. Sisters Keeping It Healthy - Red Top Mountain Hike
Red Top Mountain hike, in observance of Black History Month. All Are Welcome To Join Us!
Ever wonder where the George Washington Carver Park is located?
Join us for a 4-mile hike around Red Top Mountain and learn a little history about George Washington Carver Park which is a short drive from the hiking starting point. The hike will start at the visitor center at 8:15 am. Lunch is also in the plans.
This is a joint venture with Sista's on the Move (S.O.T.M.) and Sisters Keeping It Healthy (S.K.I.H.)
Red Top Mountain State Park new visitor center is beautiful and has so much to offer from a gift shop, conference room, covered seating and picnic tables, to restrooms that can be accessed even when the center is closed. Plus, there are several trails to choose from. There is a $5 fee per vehicle. This beautiful state Park is also one of Georgia's most popular. Its location on Lake Allatoona is one reason why it attracts so many visitors, but the park provides much more than a chance to fish, go boating, or go swimming. Red Top Mountain is also within easy reach of Atlanta. It is a relatively short drive for Atlantans that want to find a place where they can spend some time relaxing in a beautiful natural setting.
Hiking / Trails - HIKING - There are 12 1/2 miles of wooded hiking trails in the park. These vary from 1/2 mile to 5 1/2 miles, traverse the woods and the shoreline, and vary in ratings from easy to moderate. One of the trails is a 3/4-mile paved loop trail that is ADA accessible and is is suitable for wheelchairs and strollers.
But we are saving the best for the day of the hike - The History of George Washington Carver Park which established as the first “Georgia State Park for Negroes.” The 345-acre park was named George Washington Carver Park, honoring the renowned Tuskegee Institute botanist and inventor.
