Please join me for a Sunday morning hike at Island Ford.
We will cover approx. 5 1/2 miles in 2 hours. The pace will be moderate with a couple very short water breaks. The Island Ford trails have a few moderate climbs, but nothing too strenuous.
We will meet and start the hike promptly at 10:00 a.m. (sorry, we cannot wait for latecomers) from the first parking lot (Lollipop parking lot). We will begin our hike by heading towards the Chattahoochee and hiking along the river trail. Around the pond. Back to the parking lot where our cars are located. (this will be just about 2 1/2 miles). Those that want to continue we will do the Lolliop Loop which will add another 3 miles to the hike.
Water is a must.
Bathrooms are available at the visitor's center. (arrive early as the visitor center is a couple miles from our parking lot)
There is a $3.00 daily parking fee at Island Ford unless you have an annual pass. If you need to purchase a day parking pass you can do so at the kiosk as you enter the visitor center parking lot. Annual passes can be purchased after the hike at the visitor center for $30.
There have been vehicle break-ins - please leave all valuables at home
