Join us for an early morning Saturday hike in the winding forest footpaths along the Chattahoochee River (Jones Bridge Branch - Chattahoochee NRA).  

The Jones Bridge hike is a cool place to get away from the city to enjoy nature without having to drive for several hours to the mountains.  It's quite common to observe deer and other wildlife on the trail and river.

This is a nice  easy/moderate loop hike (5-6 miles) that is mostly flat with a few gentle climbs.  

We'll meet in the parking lot at the very end of the entrance road 5-10 minutes before the start of the event.  Restrooms are available. 

1. Because of the several side trails and turns on this hike, we will be hiking closely together as a group, while exercising and maintaining social distancing.
2. Itinerary is subject to change.



Required Items to Bring:

-1-2 liters of water
-Breakfast snack
-Appropriate clothing for weather
-Walking shoes or boots (Running shoes will work too!)

Recommended Items to Bring:
Use our Event Checklists to make sure you have everything you need.
