I'm restricted to walking on relatively flat surfaces until my two broken wrists heal, but I've really missed seeing the friends I hike with on a regular basis . . . so this is a chance for me to get out and exercise a bit, and to see some of you! This hike is open to anyone who is willing to keep the pace on the moderately slow side, because I'd like to have the group stay together. If you're a newcomer to the AOC, you're welcome to join me and become a new friend!
We'll start at the Columns Drive parking lot and loop around to the restrooms at the Interstate North parking lot. Then, we'll complete the gravel path back to our lot. Please arrive by 9:20 am so that you can park, use the restroom, and meet your fellow hikers. We'll start promptly at 9:30 am, so don't be late!
If you bring a dog, you must keep it on a leash and pick up after your dog if there are any droppings.
There is a required $5 parking fee at this location. It's free parking if you have an annual CRNRA pass or an America the Beautiful pass. If you do not have an entrance pass, please purchase one online before the hike at https://www.recreation.gov/sitepass/2626.
