Broadlands Community Hike on the Appalachian Trail
Ages: Anyone old enough or young enough to hike a steep trail without complaining
Date: January 31st, 2015
Time: Noon at the Nature Center or 1:00 pm at Trail Head
Cost: Broadlands residents $3/ person ($10 max per family), non-residents $5/ person
Meet at noon at the Nature Center to carpool/caravan OR at 1pm at the parking lot on the SW corner of route 7 and Rt. 601 (Blueridge Mountain Rd) in Bluemont, VA. The hike up to the look-out spot by Bears Den is a bit steep, so sturdy hiking books are recommended, and trekking poles can be helpful. It is often colder and icier up on the trail than at home in Broadlands – dress for the weather!
In the case of extreme weather hike may be postponed.
