Please join me for an evening hike on the beautiful trails of the Island Ford unit of the Chattahoochee River Natl Recreation Area (CRNRA).
We will hike along the banks of the Chattahoochee River at a moderate pace. If time permits we will hike part of the newer "lollypop loop." This is a great hike for beginners as much of our route will be relatively flat with little elevation.
We will meet at the first parking lot on the left after you enter the park from Roberts Drive. The visitors center closes at 5 pm so there will be no restrooms available.
Please call me (770-856-2105) if you are running late.
Well behaved dogs are welcome but in accordance with park rules, they must be on a leash and under their owner's control at all times.
Please note that there is a $3 cash parking fee unless you have an annual Chattahoochee River Rec parking pass. Please arrive a few minutes early to pay for parking and check in.
