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 9:00 a.m. (sorry, we cannot wait for latecomers) from the first parking lot (Lollipop parking lot). We will begin our hike by doing the Lollipop Loop (almost three miles) and then head to the trail that runs along the river, a quick stop at Visitor's Center and hopefully they will have a fire started and we can warm up and use restrooms. Then back to our vehilces.
NOTE: Daily Parking fee has increased - it is $5.00 CASH or display your annual pass.
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 $5.00 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 at the visitor center
There have been vehicle break-ins - please leave all valuables at home
