The 195 acre Jones Bridge park is named after the private toll bridge built in 1904, which for nearly 20 years spanned the Chattahoochee river in this area. Half of the bridge located at the east end of the park was stolen in 1940, and it remains this way up to date.
This trail rolls the opposite way of the bridge along the river for about two miles, then enters the woods, where we can choose between a number of intersecting trails. In general, the trails are flat with some relatively easy uphill climbs, nothing with over a 150 foot elevation gain. We will hike at a moderate pace and try to complete the 5 miles length in 2 hours, at twilight time. Deer are common in this park and back to the river, you can sometimes see its special guest, the heron.
|How to Get There:|
|Event Directions:||From GA 400, take exit 7a, and head East 4.1 miles through the intersection of Holcomb Bridge and Nesbitt Ferry Road to the junction of Barnwell Road. Turn left on Barnwell Rd, and travel approx 2 miles to Jones Bridge Branch which will be on the right. Turn in and go a little over 1/2 mile to large parking lot at end of road. |
