Sope Creek Professional Review and Guide

"This park unit preserves woodlands and river bottomlands surrounding the site of the nineteenth-century Marietta Paper Mill on the banks of Sope Creek. While the origins of the creek’s name are obscure, it is believed to come from Cherokee Chief “Sope,” who lived in the area in the early 1800s.

The original mill, constructed by slaves in the 1850s, produced paper for Confederate currency during the Civil War. The mill, spared by Union forces in 1864, succumbed to fire in the 1870s. The rebuilt mill closed in 1903, and the abandoned buildings slowly deteriorated to the ruins seen today."

Moderate difficulty. Close to the city. There is some up and down. Lots of maps to guide you through the park. Stay off the bike trail if you have a dog. Great places by the creek to have a snack/picnic. Check out my full review on my blog. http://twentysevenintwentytwelve.blogspot.com/2012/02/stepping-out-paper-mill-trail.html
