Strenuous, hilly 4.5 mile hike. Some trail sections with poor footing.
This is one of the two parks (with Bay Park West) that are open in a test of bikers and hikers sharing a county park. Tryon Park trails are not as well cut out nor as well maintained as those in Bay Park West and there will also be several rocky areas, making footing testing at times.
We will hike many of the trails north of the creek and will not overlap with the GVHC Ellison Park-Tryon Park hike (Jan 27, 2013) which will stay south of the creek. Hikers who do both outings will see most of the trails in Tryon Park.
Meet at the parking lot off Tryon Park (Road), on the north (left-hand) side immediately after the end of the bridge passing over I-590.
