Itinerary:

**MOVED TO FRIDAY**

This is a fitness hike. The pace overall is probably around a 3.3 to 3.5 with a few water breaks - and no rest breaks.

Leita Thompson Memorial Park is located in Roswell, GA and has a great trail that winds through the woods. It's made of soft, small gravel and plenty wide to walk side by side. It's very wooded and clean and has a few nice little hills. We will walk around a small lake and then up the hill to Leita's house for a brief stop outside.  

A little more information on the park:

There are no bathrooms, but there are some porta potties throughout the park.

We will start promptly at 10:30AM.
