An old friend Fontainebleau State Park

Wether you go on the 4-5mile hike, canoeing, do some geo-caching, learn a little history at the visitor center, or just hang out at the beach Fontainebleau State Park is fun for everyone.

Entrance Fee: $2/person; Free to Ages +62 and -3

We'll meet near the pavilions.  I'll have the Hiking Banner out. We can even have a pot luck picnic if there is interest; voice your opinion in the comments.

  • Curtis C.

    Carpool anyone? I live on the the Westbank, will cross the GNO, take I-10 to Metairie, and north on the Causeway. Travelling together is always better than travelling alone...
