We will start at the Visitor's Center...all the way at the end of the road that you enter on and into the park area. We will walk up the road for a mile, then head into the woods...going through the lollipop section and back around to the river areas, etc. Might take it a bit slower at a moderate pace (moderate, not slow) for the 5 miles. If we feel adventurous, will go around the "magicial" lake for a few extra steps.
