Haven (5.10 a/b), Palisades/Whitewater Creek Trail...

Trail Entrance is on Private Property, but altercations are rare.


This is a beautiful, secluded area on the banks of the Chattahoochee River. There are several boulders and small cliff outcroppings to climb and explore.

Getting There 

To get there from I-285 East, exit off Powers Ferry Road and turn right. Turn right again onto Powers Ferry Road/Akers Mill Road, which parrallels the interstate. Just before the river, turn left into Ray's On The River restaurant or somewhere nearby. Find parking wherever you can and head downstream from Ray's on the River Restaurant until you reach a small path. There is a medium sized boulder on near the beginning of the trail that follows the river.
