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 what we decide, will return back to the parking lot one way or another to make the 5 miles trek.

Pace will be moderate...not fast, not slow.

Please arrive a wee bit early so we can start right on time.  Thank you.
