Itinerary:

Come and enjoy another TGIF hike at Jones Bridge Park! This event is normally led by Eva but she will be away this week.

We cover almost 6 miles keeping a fast pace with stops in very few intersections.

We will walk along the river, then enter the woods, where we will head towards the pond. From there we will head back into the woods. In general, the trails are flat with some relatively easy uphill climbs, nothing with over a 150 foot elevation gain.

We'll meet in the parking lot at the very end of the entrance road.  Restrooms are available here. Please remove all valuables visible in your vehicles because there have been acts of vandalism.

Dogs are welcome, but in accordance with park rules, they must be on a leash.

OPTIONAL:  After the hike, you're welcome to join us for dinner at Dagwood's Pizzeria - Holcomb Bridge and Spalding.  Besides pizza, they also offer a variety of pasta dishes, and salads.  Of course you're responsible for paying for your own dinner and/or drinks :)

Dagwood's Pizza:  7746 Spalding Dr, Norcross GA 30092    Today's hours: 10:30 am-10:00 pm dagwoodspizza.com (770) 441-7773
