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 start out on the trail behind the Visitor's Center along the river. We will continue to do the lollipop trail. Then, depending on the level of light/or darkness...we will either take the trail back or will walk on the road within the park to get back to the parking lot at the Visitor's Center.
Pace will be moderate...not a stroll and not a fitness hike, something in the middle...but fast-ish.
Please arrive a wee bit early so we can start right on time. Thank you.
