Please join me for a hike on the beautiful trails of the Island Ford unit of the Chattahoochee River Natl Recreation Area (CRNRA). We will be hiking at a steady pace along the river, up into the woods stopping to hydrate and gather up. There are some moderate climbs but nothing too hard. We will not be hiking the lollipop loop.
We will meet at the Visitor Center. See below for directions.
Please note that there is a $5 parking fee unless you have an annual Chattahoochee River Rec parking pass. Be prepared to use your phone to pay for parking since the kiosks are no longer accepting cash. The visitors center will be open if you want to purchase a daily or annual pass. Masks are required when entering the visitors center.
Please bring water to hydrate during the hike.
There are bathrooms in the visitors center.
Please arrive early to use the restroom and pay for parking because we will be leaving on time.
