Join me for an exercise hike in Jones Bridge Park.  We will move at a moderately fast pace 3 ml/hr to cover over 7 miles with a couple of stops.

We will start our hike promptly at 10.00 am with the "Grand Finale" loop, and come back to the parking lot about 10 minuts later.  If you are running late, this is your chance to catch the group.  After that we walk along the river towards the pond to the Rivermont Park.  Our first water break will be on the top of the big hill.  We will hike the whole regular trail which ends at Barnwell Road.  Before coming back, we will make a turn to the old trail.  It will give us a chance to climb extra hills.  We come back through the woods to the parking lot.  I will make sure you are hiking for 2 hours 30 minutes; so if we come back earlier, we will do the Grand Finale loop one more time. 

We'll meet at the big parking lot which is at the end of the road.  Please give yourself enouth time for car parking - sometimes it can be pretty full. 

This hike is rated as moderate on a fast end. For the safety of the group if I have not hiked with you, I might contact you to make sure that this hike is appropriate for you.

If you can't keep up with this pace, please don't sign up.

I like to walk with a small group.  My ideal amout of people is 8.  The maximum amount of people I can take is 12. 

***Don't leave any valuables in your vehicles for there have been cases of vandalism.
