Off The Reservation
Today, Larry and I ventured out the front gate of Village at Deaton Creek and off the reservation for a hike on Mulberry RiverWalk. It’s nice to get outside the community and check out the local attractions.
Mulberry RiverWalk trail is only 8 miles from our front gate and consists of miles of a meandering walking path along the Mulberry River and much of it is relatively flat, but you need study shoes because it is unpaved and there are some roots and stones.
Along the trail, we happened upon a monument marking the spot where four North Georgia counties converge, including Gwinnett, Barrow, Hall and Jackson, so I asked Larry to take my picture.
We walked two miles in and two miles back but looking at the map it looks like the RiverWalk goes much further. We crossed over a wooded bridge and there are several places with a park bench along the creek, a good place to get in touch with nature.
Mulberry Creek is the same Creek that runs through our Village at Deaton Creek, a couple of miles around the bend.
Mulberry RiverWalk is another place to add to my Places to Walk list. I have been amazed at how many parks and places to walk are nearby to us here at Village at Deaton Creek. It’s so nice to have these wonderful resources so close to our Active Adult Community.
You should check out the shopping and attractions within six miles of your community, when you are considering which community to buy in. But I must say, when I purchased, I had no idea there were so many parks within that distance from my community.
