Itinerary:

Please join us on this hike at Jones Bridge Unit, Chattahoochee National Recreation Area.

This hike will be at a moderate pace for about 5 miles. These trails have a few moderate climbs, but nothing too strenuous.

We are meeting at the main parking lot at the very end of the road.  Daily parking pass is $5 cash if you don't have an annual pass. 

Please arrive 10 minutes early to allow time for restroom, getting ready, and introductions.

An annual pass is a great way to motivate oneself to keep coming back and enjoy all of the National Recreation Area parks and national parks throughout the USA. It is more convenient and very cost effective.

There have been reported vehicle break-ins - please leave all valuables at home.
