Going back to what I'm known for - walking around the city!

On this walk, we will be starting at Candler Park (use the address provided). Parking is free inside the park. From there, we will take the route I've mapped out (above) to give us 6-6.5 miles.

No hiking gear is needed - just a pair of comfy walking shoes will do.

You're welcome to bring your dog. However, they will not be able to wander the grounds of the MLK Center... you'll have to wait on the sidewalk for us.
