We will plan to meet in the Riverside Park lot in Roswell. This lot is monitored by Roswell PD so cars are generally safe and the park closes at dark. We will meet at the bathrooms that along the sidewalk directly in from the light and circle between the two main lots. After introductions we will walk along the sidewalk that goes under Roswell road and along the Chattahoochee River. We will continue along past the rowing club, Azalea Park and then left under the arch to the boardwalk. We will continue on this until Willeo Park where we will turn around and head back.

We should expect to share the trail with walkers, runners and cyclists. We should see some wildlife including birds (backyard birds, blue herons, hawks, ducks and geese), turtles and little fish. Feel free to stop for a second to check something out, but be ready to catch up as we will be moving at a steady pace to finish in 2 hours so we are out done before dark. If we have not hit 6 miles and need an extra few steps we will loop Riverside park before at the end before we head to the cars. Note this is 3miles per hour.
