Please join me at Simpsonwood - a little known park tucked away along the east bank of the Chattahoochee River in Norcross.  Rated as a D2 hike - there is very little elevation - mostly flat, easy terrain although there are tripping hazards (roots). A nice moderate pace - not super fast.   Great hike for beginners and others that want to visit this beautiful park

Meet at the benches right in front of the restrooms - hike begins promptly at 8:00 - please arrive 10 minutes early.  Dogs are welcome to join us but they MUST be leashed.

Bathroom is usually open - but I can't promise - plan accordingly

This is a Gwinnett County Park - no parking fee needed.
