Please join me for an afternoon hike at West Palisades - we will all meet in the parking lot along Cobb Parkway.  hike about 1/2 mile on a paved walking trail and then hit the real trails - some minor elevation but we'll take those hills slow.  Hike will be  approximately 2 hours and we should get in just about 5 miles.  Not a fast hike, more on the leisurely side but not too slow.  Supposed to be a beautiful afternoon and just want to enjoy nature.

There is a $5.00 parking fee - those that have an annual pass from CRNRA you are good to go, just display pass in your car.  Those that don't have annual can pay at the kiosk in the parking lot - bring $5.00 cash and arrive a few minutes early.

HIke will begin promptly at 4:00 - please leave yourself time to hit the restroom and/or purchase your parking pass

There are restrooms at this location.
