Itinerary:

 

Not for Beginners due to moderate 2 1/2 mph Pace

Come join your AOC hiking buddie on this 2 hour - 5 mile hike at Jones Bridge Unit, Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area.

These trails have a few moderate climbs, to get your chest pumping, but nothing too strenuous.

We meet and start at the main parking lot at the very end of the road. It is at the second lot to the north, not the first lot right on the river...keep going to the left on the access road once in the park.  It’s better to arrive a little earlier than the starting time for restroom, getting ready, and introductions.

Daily parking pass is $5 cash if you don't have an annual pass.

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.

Water

Good hiking shoes
