The below information contains the route map, exactly where in the Martin's parking lot we are starting from and where to park, where the walk is ending and where to park in St. Patrick's County Park.

It is ideal if you are walking with at least 1 other person to have one park at your starting point and one park at your finish point. Uber/Lyft is also an option, but at the participant's expense. As the size of the group grows enough to merit the expense, group transportation will be provided. Therefore, each participant will need to have their own transportation from the park or their exit point, if that is not the park.
