Island Ford is a great scenic hiking trail with parts along the Chattahoochee River. The first part of the hike will be in silent to listen to the birds and the water. The intent is to keep awareness and enjoy nature. We hike in silence and hopefully you silence your thoughts focusing on your steps and your oneness with the rest of the group. (It's OK to say hello back to people who greets you.)
We will meet at the Visitor’s Center which is located at the back of the park. Follow the road, passing two other parking lots on your left until the road dead ends to the Visitor’s Station all the way at the back of the park. The Visitor’s Center will be open and restrooms will be available there. Prepare to come a few minutes early to pay the $3 parking fee or to purchase an annual pass at the Visitor’s Ceter for $25.
Dogs are welcome but must be on leash at all times in accordance with Chattahoochee NRA park rules.
Thanks Tony C for the picture!
