A 10 mile circuit hike on Massanutten Mountain near Strasburg. Sweeping views from overlooks. The high point is Signal Knob, used as a signal relay station during the Civil War. Elevation change 2300 feet. Map is attached.

Carpools will leave at 7:30am 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 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.
