We'll start with a an out and back on the lollipop and then do a loop down to the Visitor Center and back. Covering about 5.5-6 miles and 550 ft of elvation gain. This will be a moderate paced hike, averaging about 2.0 mph.
We'll meet at the first parking lot, on the left, inside Island Ford National Park. The hike will start at 11:00 (sorry, we cannot wait for latecomers).
CRNRA does require a parking pass. I you do not have one, please puchase one before this hike.
There is a $5.00 daily parking fee unless you have an annual pass. If you need to purchase a day parking pass you can do so at the kiosk at the visitor center parking lot. Annual passes can be purchased from 9:00 to 5:00 at the visitor center for $40
Bathrooms and parking passes are available at the Island Ford Visitor Center - go about one mile, from the park entrance, until the road ends. Arrive early to allow time for restrooms or if you need a parking pass. From the Visitor Center, head back towards the park entrance to the first parking lot (it is just inside the front gate to the park)
There have been vehicle break-ins - please leave all valuables at home
