About the Event
The Ch8sing Waterfalls caravan will meet at 6:30 a.m. - Publix Super Market 1625 Pleasant Hill Rd #200, Duluth, GA 30096
We have a 7:00 a.m. sharp, caravan departure.
Our secondary Meetup is at 8:30 - BP at 110 US-441, Clayton, GA 30525
We will meet our ch8se lead, and friend Chef Rod at the BP. From the BP, we will drive another 45 minutes or so, to High Falls to begin our awesome adventure.
You will need to pack a lunch, ample, hearty snacks and adequate hydration. The idea is to find a nice spot to sit and have lunch. Bring an empty plastic bag for your trash. We practice the the rule of thumb to leave no trace. Whatever you bring in, you take out. Pack a small cooler with snacks, ice and extra water for the trip there and back. Pack more than you think you will need. It is always better to have and not need than to need and not have.
You will need hiking boots, and hiking poles, as well as a backpack with hiking essentials, and emergency medication.
Dress appropriately. Layers are recommended. This hike is considered moderate, be prepared. For the ride home, for some, I recommend having ibuprofen ready in your vehicle. I've noticed that sometimes after a moderate hike, ibuprofen is helpful for the long drive home.
Please be prepared to spend most of your day Embr8cing The Ch8se. Considering the drive is a round trip of 5 hours, the ch8se, including lunch will be approximately 2-3 hours. Also factor in the fact that we never rush the experience. I suggest you not plan an event that will require your attention until late in the evening, better yet, save it until Sunday.
I recommend you download the RoadiD app and have your emergency contacts identified and with you via the app or paper, sealed in a plastic bag, in your backpack.
Thank you for choosing to embr8ce the ch8se with us.
Feel free to contact us if you have any questions.
We look forward to meeting you soon.
