This is a second hike added on to the Hyde Farm/Johnson Ferry North Hike - do either or both. Both will give you over 10 miles. Just this one will be just over 5 miles. The parks are literally a couple of minutes drive from each other. 

We will enter the park from the parking lot and proceed around the edge towards the river. We will then begin to climb to the interior of the park for some uphill workout. From there we will tackle the outer trail anti- clockwise and head back in to the park for more uphill. We will actually complete the full loop with  three interior climbs. 

We wil try to maintain an aggressive pace around 3mph +. 

There are no bathrooms at the park. You will need a parking pass for the park. Use this link to purchase:
