Itinerary:

Jones Bridge Bridgeless Hike - Paseo Por El Rio (Walk by the river)

Join us for this Thursday evening hike!  We will cover over 5.5 miles keeping a moderate to fast pace with stops at a few intersections.

We will walk along the river towards the pond, and come back through the woods. In general, the trails are flat with some relatively easy uphill climbs, nothing with over a 150 foot elevation gain.  There is no bridge on this hike, but you will definitley see where the bridge was located in the past.

We'll meet in the parking lot at the very end of the entrance road.  Restrooms are available here.

Dogs are welcome, but in accordance with park rules, they must be on a leash. I will also ask the dog owners to walk ahead or at the back of the group.

 **Don't leave any valuables in your vehicles for there have been cases of vandalism.
