I live near quite a few parks. So today, my neighbor Larry and I ventured out of The Village at Deaton Creek for a hike on Mulberry RiverWalk. It’s nice to get outside the community and check out the local attractions every once in a while.
The Mulberry RiverWalk trail consists of a long, meandering walking path along the Mulberry River. Fortunately, most of it is relatively flat. However, if you plan to hike this trail, make sure you wear sturdy shoes. The path is unpaved and riddled with exposed roots and an odd stone or two.
Along the trail, we happened upon a monument marking the spot where four North Georgia counties converge. Of course, I asked Larry to take my picture.
We walked only four miles in total. Looking at the map, it appears the RiverWalk goes much further. We crossed over a wooded bridge, where we discovered several park benches along the creek. The perfect place to commune with nature.
Mulberry RiverWalk is another place to add to my Places to Walk list. The number of parks and places to walk nearby truly amazes me! It’s so nice to have these wonderful resources so close to our active adult community. With every passing day, one thing becomes more and more apparent to me. I’m certainly enjoying my retirement to the fullest!
