Let's honor our veterans and enjoy the November weather at the beautiful Jones Bridge park.

This trail rolls 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 over a 150 foot elevation gain. We will hike at a moderate pace. Deer are common in this park and you can sometimes see blue heron.
We'll meet in the parking lot at the very end of the entrance road. Restrooms are available.

The National Parks Service is waiving the entrance fee for the holiday. Please note that there are two entrances to the park. The first is usually gated. The second entrance, further north on Barnwell Road, is where we will meet. More detailed directions are provided below.

Dogs are welcome, but in accordance with park rules, they must be on a leash no more than 6 feet in length and under the owners physical restraint at all times. 

** Thanks to Tony C. for the nice picture!
