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. Then head towards the front part of the park and tackle the lollipop section. We will return back by covering the part we hiked prior to finish our 5 mile trek.
Pace will be moderate - not fast, not slow...but just right.
Please arrive a wee bit early so we can start right on time. Thank you.
