Please join me for a hike on the beautiful trails of the Island Ford unit of the Chattahoochee River Natl Recreation Area (CRNRA). We will be hiking at a steady but moderate pace along the river, up into the woods stopping to hydrate and gather up. There are some moderate climbs but nothing too hard. We may back track a little bit to get in our mileage. However, thuroughly explore the water parts!
We will meet at the Visitor Center. See below for directions.
Please note that there is a $5 cash parking fee unless you have an annual Chattahoochee River Rec parking pass.
Bathrooms are available at the Visitor Center.
Please bring plenty of water to hydrate during the hike.
DUE TO BREAK-INS, LOCK ALL VALUABLES IN YOUR TRUNK and OUT OF SIGHT!
Please arrive a few minutes early to check in or use the bathrooms. If you're running late or can't make it at the last minute, please call Russ at 404-353-3077.
Following the hike, you're welcome to drive 1 mile & join some of us for some tasty Mediterranean Classics!
