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.
