  • This location is shown only to members

For this "urban" hike, we will meet downtown at the Belle Isle/North Bank parking lot on Tredegar Street.  From there we'll head east across Brown's Island, then take the Pipeline Trail past the Heron Rookery to 14th Street and cross the Mayo Bridge.  South of the river, we'll hike west along the floodwall, cross Belle Isle, and take the suspended walkway under the Lee Bridge back to the parking lot.  If you're new to the group, this is a great beginner/icebreaker activity.

    I'm sorry to have to cancel our first outing! My husband walked over 4 miles in the heat today at work and we just can't make it tonight. Hope to join you on another adventure soon!

    Is there a way to get 'connected' once arriving? (Since this is my first visit.)

    • Brian

      Hi Lauren...welcome! Just look for us standing around in the parking lot. Make sure you know how to get there if you've never been.

    If anyone wants to carpool from Willow Lawn area please let me know.
    I could also be persuaded to go to Innsbrook afterwards to see George Clinton & Parliament Funkadelic.

      How come? The ladder?

    • Marilyn

      Nope, I did something to my "good" knee after the Shenandoah hike. Gotta get an MRI and no hiking/long walks until the verdict is in which will be at least 2 weeks at the rate it's going.

    Hi Brian, when I signed up for this event, I didn't know if Kerry would like the Wed hikes so I did not add her. After yesterday, she wants to continue going. I could not add her as a guest just now. How do I do this?

    Thanks again!
