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.

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 1/2 miles in length and we will be back to the parking lot by 10:15
Restrooms - there is one but not sure if it's open during Covid-19
