**The Creek to Peak 4 Miler is part of the 2019 Greater Atlanta Run Series.
The Creek to Peak 4 Miler is a trail run taking place on portions of the white, green, and red trails of Sweetwater Creek State Park. The portions of the trails utilized vary in technical difficulty ranging from easy to moderately difficult.
The course is akin to a lollipop with the same start and end point and the loop taking place as you begin a downward descent to the creek and make your way back up to the peak. (Technically, the course goes from peak to creek and then back to peak. )
Most of the elevation climb and more technical trail take place after your reach the creek and begin your return to the finish. Throughout the course you will take in the beautiful scenery of Sweetwater Creek State Park. There may even be a (very small) brook crossing along the way (see Views from the Course photos 17 and 18 .)
The Views from the Course (shown below) are numbered to reflect the order the views can be observed along the course. You can see the creek running along the trail in photos 7-11 and then photos 12-22 show some of the climb back to the finish.
