Directions to Start Point: Traveling North on I-65 take Exit 351. Travel West on Hwy 72 and continue approximately 1.5 miles. Bear right on Clinton Street and proceed approximately 1 mile. Turn right on Market, then go straight ahead into Big Spring Memorial Park. The start point for the walk is at the Athens Visitor’s Center which is at the park.
(NOTE: Please go straight to the Athens Visitor’s Center rather than the Hampton Inn where the walk box is normally located. Karen will pick up the registration book and stamp pad, etc. from the walk box and bring it over to the Athens Visitor’s Center)
After the walk, we will have dinner at Cracker Barrel. It is located at 1212 Kelli Drive, Athens, AL 35611. To get there, head back to Hwy 72 and travel east towards I-65. Cracker Barrel is just past I-65 near the Hampton Inn.
