While not as well known as some of the other branches of the Chattahoochee NRA, Jones Bridge has an excellent system of trails which can be combined to provide five miles or so of hiking. Much of our hike will be along the river, but a good bit of it will be on a ridge in the nearby woods. There will be a few hills you will need to climb but nothing with over a 150 foot elevation gain. This is a good beginner hike.
Please arrive about 10 minutes early.

Three dollar parking fee or Chattahoochee NRA annual parking pass required.
