Have You Seen the Castle-Like Ruins on This Cobb County Hiking Trail?

Living in West Cobb County, traveling to East Cobb can be an adventure. This time, it was a fun adventure as we visited Sope Creek Park and hiked to the historic ruins of a paper mill along the banks of the rocky stream. Plus, we had some extra adventure when we missed a trail marker and turned our short hike into a longer and more hilly one. Sope Creek is part of the Chattahoochee National Recreation Area, designated as part of the national park system when Georgia's Jimmy Carter occupied the White House. Today, the Chattahoochee National Recreation Area is one of the top 30 most-visited national park properties, ranking just ahead of legendary Zion National Park, according to National Park statistics. On this hike, we explore the ruins of the castle-like paper mill, hike along the creek, and through the wooded hills. Come with us on this 3-minute summary of our 90 minute hike.

I've traveled to 47 states and nearly as many countries, and I'm still counting up.

I'm a South Louisiana-born French Cajun whose great-grandparents were sugar farmers, bar owners and reputed bootleggers. My upbringing in food-rich Louisiana and my restaurant industry career affirmed my status as an over-qualified eater. That also inspired the name of my blog, OurTravelCafe.com.
