Hike Jones Bridge CNRA, eat a vegan buffet at Loving Hut nearby

Meet for a morning hike at Jones Bridge Park. We will walk along the river and walk through the woods. In general, the trails are flat with some relatively easy uphill climbs, nothing with over a 150 foot elevation gain. Hike is rated easy to moderate.  We will do 4.5 miles in ~2 hours.

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.

Please bring water and your $3 for the parking if you don't have a CRNA pass.

Lets meet at 9:45am so we will have a timely start of 10am.  If you are late or in doubt about the weather, call Tom's cell at[masked] .

This hike will be cancelled if it's pouring rain.

The Loving Hut is a vegan restaurant and they have a monthly buffet every 3rd Sat of the month, and this date happens to be the 3rd Saturday of the month.The food is surprisingly good - it's fruits, vegetables, and grains with no animal products whatsoever.  Even if its pouring rain and the hike is cancelled, I will still eat here at about 12:30pm.  Cost is $11.99 + tax which includes a beverage, salad, soup, approximately 8-10 main courses and dessert.  The address is:

6385 Spalding Drive Norcross, GA 30092

(It's at the northwest corner of Spalding Drive and Holcomb Bridge Rd.

Restaurant phone: (678)[masked]

    JiyedN theA cold front had moved in, which made temps ideal...in the 50s to low 60s. It started raining just a little bit but not enough to get us wet. I enjoyed the hike and the conversations of the hike companions...;-)

    Hey guys... 30% chance of showers. Weather channel shows a system coming in from Miss and AL. Bring rain gear just in case. Rain or not, we'll still have lunch at the Loving Hut. If it rains hard, we'll shorten the hike.
