Lontra Loop Trail Hike

Saturday, February 10

 1:00 PM - 3:30 PM

Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area

Jones Bridge Unit

Description: Join National Park Service Naturalist Jerry Hightower for a wonderful winter walk on the Lontra loop trail through a beautiful floodplain bottomland forest as we loop around the narrow floodplain. This is an excellent area for viewing wildlife. We will meander back along the river and look for wildlife and signs of wildlife. We might catch a glimpse of an Osprey or a Great Blue Heron. Along the trail we will identify some common floodplain plants and, with the leaves mostly gone, we will be able to better appreciate the topography of this area of the river corridor; so please join us.

Location: We will meet in the parking area at Chattahoochee River Environmental Education Center, 8615 Barnwell Road, Johns Creek, Georgia 30022. Directions: www.nps.gov/chat

Facilities: Located in the center’s lodge

Difficulty: This hike is leisurely on a flat floodplain trail. These walks are quite slow with numerous stops to discuss items of interest along the way. Note: This walk is not suitable for very young children.

Bring: Dress for the weather and wear comfortable shoes suitable for walking on a forest trail. Dress in layers so that you can adjust to changes in the temperature and activity level. A hat, scarf, and gloves might be a good idea. Bring water and you might include snacks. You may wish to bring binoculars and a hand lens. Note: A daily entrance fee or annual pass is needed.

Limit: 30 persons
