Note: This is an "EXPLORATORY" trip. This means that there are parts of this trip, or perhaps the whole trip, that is new to your Trip Leader(s). However, they are confident that this will not be an issue.
This note is here so that you can make an informed decision. When a Trip Leader isn't personally familiar with a trip, there is an increased chance of things not going as planned and you need to be prepared. The Trip Leader may have additional details in the itinerary.


We will begin at the Sope Creek parking lot and head down to the old ruins and then back up in to the park. From there will go by Sibley pond and in to Cochran Shoals. Some of this hike will be on hiking trail only and some on shared bike trails. 

We will be going at a pace of 3 mph +. 

I hike this park often but consider this an exploratory hike as I hike several different routes. I will be very conscious of getting us back to the parking lot on time. We may be a few minutes either side of the finish time.
