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

We will start at the Visitor's Center.  The Visitor's Center is located all the way down the entrance road to the very end which is about one mile from the entrance off Roberts Drive.  We will hike the street for the first mile then venture into the wooded area to complete the hike.

The pace of this hike might be too fast for beginners but not fast enough to be a Fitness Hike. We typically finish in 1 hour and 45 minutes.
