Contact: Ellen Hill
Description: Greetings, fellow hikers~
To avoid inevitable blockages on SNP trails, let's go to Sky Meadows State Park (11012 Edmonds Lane, Delaplane, VA). We will start at the Visitor Center but hike towards and around the Lost Mountain part of the park. Maps will be provided on site. There is a $5.00 entry fee if you don't have a Virginia State Park pass.
Here's hoping wind, snow, rain, ice, illness, whatever don't prevent you from coming!
Start time: 8:45 a.m. (I'll meet you at the trailhead.)
Carpool meetup time: 7:45 (see carpool details below)
Directions to the Visitor Center: Take I-66 West to Exit 23 for US-17N/VA-55W toward Delaplane/Paris. Continue on US-17 for 6.4 miles (watch speed limit). Park entrance (SR 710) is on the left. Follow it to the parking area at the end of the road.
Carpools should leave at 7:45 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. 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.
