Come join us at Cochran Shoals. The Cochran Shoals trails have a few moderate climbs in our route, but nothing too strenuous.
We will cover sections of Interstate North and Columns Drive at the Cochran Shoals unit of CRNRA.
We’ll meet and start from the Interstate North parking lot. Please arrive at least 15 minutes before the starting time for getting a parking (not very easy on weekend), restroom, and introduction.
We’ll follow the river going north-east to Columns Drive entry, and then loop around to take the inland trail going south-west until we reach the junction before a bridge. From there, we’ll take the narrow Columns Drive Trail into the woods going north to its north end. We’ll take a short break before turning around going south to get back to the same junction, then back to our starting point.
Daily Parking fee is $5.00 CASH, or display your annual pass.
Restrooms are available at the parking lots of Interstate North and Columns Drive. Otherwise there are many trees and bushes along the way if you have to go.
If you need to purchase a day parking pass, you can do so at the parking lot.
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.
<<< Sunday Lunch Feast >>>
There is an optional lunch feast right after our hike. We will enjoy delicious dishes together. We will discuss the location and details before we're done with hiking. Bring your cell phone for direction. It'll take about 15 min. to get there, and we'll be done with our lunch feast in about a little over an hour. Bring $15 cash for lunch.
