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 and then up into the woods.  There are some mild climbs but nothing too strenous.   This hike will be at a moderate but steady pace.  

There are restrooms at this location.

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.        

 Please arrive early to use the restroom and pay for parking as we will be leaving on time. 

Trip leader will adhere to CDC recommendations for social distancing.   Masks are optional.

Dogs are welcome but in accordance with park rules they must be leashed at all times.  I will ask the dog owners to please walk either ahead of the group or in the back of the group.

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