Cochran Shoals at Gunby Rd entrance:

This is a beautiful river hike along a wide path beside the river.  The focus of this hike will be SUNSHINE.  Feel free to go at your own pace, but we'll stay with a majority of the group.  This is a GREAT hike for beginners or anyone new to the AOC.  
There are restrooms at the starting location and the other side of our loop. The parking lot is large, but this is a popular location so arrive EARLY to get your spot.  WE'LL GATHER AT 1:45pm JUST INSIDE THE GATE FOR INTRODUCTIONS BEFORE STARTING AT 2:00 SHARP.  Keep our cell numbers handy in case you need to reach us.
If the lot is full, you can park across the bridge at Powers Island parking lot and walk over the bridge to get to the location.
YOU'LL NEED $3.00 or a CRNRA annual parking pass $35.  They have a machine here where you can buy the yearly pass with your credit card.

Required Items to Bring:

Water, Hiking Shoes, rain gear as needed, a SMILE on your face
