Please join me in hiking Jones Bridge, one of the Chattahooche River National Recreation Area parks.   We will start at the parking lot and head towards the trail heading south along the river, then turn away from the river and hike into the forest.  There are some mild climbs but nothing too strenous.   This hike will be at slower pace (not fast) great hike for those new to the AOC or new to hiking.  Not a hard core, fast hike.

Our hike will be approximately 5  miles in length and we will be back to the parking lot by 10:30

There is a restroom (not sure open during COVID-19) please plan accordingly

Parking $5 for the day unless you have a CRNRA annual pass in your vehicle

Pass can be purchased at the Kiosk in the parking lot - I undersatnd that they don't take cash any longer - you should be able to scan a code with your phone and pay electroncially. or prior to hike go to this website and purchase a daily or annual pass

Please leave all valuables at home - there have been instances of vandalism to cars!!!

AOC limit on this event is 10 hikers - ocassionally (if everybody logs in at once and registers at once) the system has a glitch and may allow more than 10 hikers on the event.  If this does happen I am obligated to keep to the 10 limit and remove the last ones that signed up.  I get notification of time you register and to be fair the first 10 are the only ones that I keep on the roster.

Hiking shoes/boots

Plenty of water
