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 a moderate 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 10:00

Restrooms - there is one but not sure if it's open during Covid-19
