Description: Happy Super Sunday, everyone~

Gazing out the window at the freezing rain and looking ahead to Wednesday's forecast--100% chance of rain--I'm inspired to post a hike! Rain, snow, sleet, hail--it's what we do, right? :-/

Let's do the Thornton Hollow Circuit Hike -- 10.8 miles, estimated elevation gain of 2100 feet. There will be at least four stream crossings that I'm praying will be do-able as it's been basically dry lately. Worst case scenario, we'll improvise with an out-and-back if Wednesday's predicted rain swells the river. Bring your poles. I'll distribute maps that morning.

Start time: 9:00 a.m. (I'll meet you at the trailhead.)
Carpool meetup time: 7:20 (see carpool details below)
Directions to the parking area: Enter Shenandoah National Park by either the Front Royal or Thornton Gap entrance. The parking area is on the EAST side of Skyline Drive 0.4 miles south of MP 25 (or 0.6 miles north of MP 26). If you're driving south on the Drive, as a point of reference, you'll pass the Elkwallow Wayside at MP 24.

CARPOOL DETAILS:
Carpools should leave at 7:20 from the parking lot at Fair Oaks Mall (I-66 exit 57B) near the Cheesecake Factory and the Centreville Park-and-Ride lot (I-66 exit 52). If you would like to carpool from these locations, just show up about 15 minutes prior to the meeting time. Carpools should wait until the departure time before leaving. Hike leader not be there but will await you at the trailhead by 9:00. Some people have established carpools already that meet at these locations and occasionally they have room for others. In the case where they do not have room for additional people, the other folks there can form their own carpools. In the case where there is no room for one individual, that person would need to drive themselves.
