Ride The Path thru Arabia Mtn/Panola St. Park


10:30 AM start time--Come and ride The Path thru the nature preserve, over the covered bridge to Lake Alexander and onto the newest spur along the South Rockdale River Trail to the Conyers Monastery. Shady trail with lots of wildlife and LOTS of hills. Bring water and snacks, there are no store stops (in the first 15 miles) on the trail (there is a "cafe" at the Monastery & a store 16-17 miles out, for those who choose to go that far). End to end is 38 miles at a 11-13 mph avg. 

This ride will be cancelled if its raining or conditions are particularly wet. Please check this board regularly or contact me if you are uncertain. It is a good idea to carry the following on this ride: 1) Phone; 2) water; 3) a snack bar; 4) a spare tube; 5) something to inflate the tube with. 

WEAR A HELMET. There are no exceptions from this requirement.

My phone number is:[masked]--put it into your cell phone. It might be handy if you have trouble finding the starting point or if you have difficulty on the ride and we are spread out. Or the weather creates doubt about the viability of the ride.

    One way to make good use of this site might be for car-pool coordination. This location is is a bit of a drive for some of us & a real hike for the rest.

    Anyone interested in giving or getting a ride might post what part of town they are traveling from and see what happens.

    Just a thought.

    Is the ride 38 miles there and back or do get a ride back to where the cars are? How long does this take?

      The Monastery is 19 miles from the library. With breaks it is approx. 2 hours one way. Some turn back at the lake, which gives a 22 mile ride.
