Fast 5 at 5 = Fast 5 miles at 5:00 pm.

We will start our hike from the small parking lot immediately on your left as you come into the park area (just past the front entrance gate).  We will do the "lollipop" section, back to the parking lot, then proceed to the Visitor Center and return to the small parking lot walking on the road (which provides a nice finishing incline for a little extra burn).  We will keep a quick pace, but this is not a trail run.
