Please join me for a hike on the beautiful trails of Leita Thompson Memorial Park.  The trails are made of soft, small gravel and plenty wide to walk side by side with very little roots and rocks with only 170 feet of elevation. 

We will walk 2 laps around the park at a moderate pace but stopping only once after the first lap.       

More info about the park: o/2009/06/leita- thompson-memorial- park.html

There are no bathrooms, but there are three sets of porta potties throughout the park.

Please call me if you are running late 770-856-2105.  Please arrive a few minutes early for check in as we will be leaving on time.
