Hiking at Sweetwater Creek State Park

Lithia Springs,Douglasville, Ga, Sweetwater Creek State Park, Hike

Last Saturday morning we met some friends for a hike at Sweetwater Creek State Park in Lithia Springs, (Douglasville), Ga. It has been years since I have walked there and previously I had only done the red trail down to the mill ruins.

Trails at Sweetwater Creek State Park

We met at the interpretive center/park office on Factory Shoals Rd and started off on the white trail. This was a beatiful walk that went through varied terrain and elevation changes. In the springtime I'm sure there would be a lot wildlife and native plants.  Approximately the first 2/3 of the trail are pretty easy although sometimes steep.  As the trail headed down to Jacks lake it became much more rugged.  In the slideshow you'll see a pic of the waterfall that drops from Jacks lake down to the creek branch.  

From this point on it was pretty ruggged for novices like us.  Some of it was from the terrain and some of it was from debris left from the September floods....
