Veterans Day Group Hike

Join us to celebrate our Veterans on our group hike and help us raise money for Warrior Expeditions. 

In 1948, Earl Shaffer told a friend he was going to "walk off the war" to work out the sights, sounds, and losses of World War II. Four months later, Earl Shaffer became the first person to hike the entire length of the Appalachian Trail from Georgia to Maine.

Following in Earl Shaffer's footsteps and in recognizing the therapeutic effects of long-distance outdoor expeditions, Warrior Expeditions created the Warrior Hike, Warrior Bike, and Warrior Paddle programs which are designed to help veterans transition from their wartime experiences.

Please join us in supporting this great organization by making a $5.00 donation. All proceeds will be donated to Warrior Expeditions.

We will meet at the parking lot across from the Callaway Country Store and hike about four miles to the Park Office where we will enjoy a cup of hot chocolate before we shuttle you back to your vehicle. Please bring exact amount to place in the donation jar. There is no parking fee to park in this lot.

Callaway Country Store 16275 US 27, Pine Mountain, GA. 31822
