Join me for a Friday afternoon hike at Jones Bridge Unit of the CRNRA. This will be my first hike in the quest to become a trip leader. Not to fear, as I will have old timer Lisa Maldonado along to keep me on track. Anyone needing a note excusing them from work for this 1:00 PM hike contact me at 404-935-3250.

We will hike 5-6 miles at a moderate pace. There are a few hills so be prepared for some climbing. The Jones Bridge Unit runs along the mighty Chattahoochee River. I find it to be a beautiful respite not far from the hustle and bustle of Holcomb Bridge Rd.

We will meet at the parking lot at the very end of the entrance road. Please arrive 10 minutes early for introductions. There is a $5 parking fee or use your annual pass.




Required Items to Bring:


Good hiking shoes

$5 to park or annual pass
