Description: A 10 mile hike (no shortcuts) with 2500 ft. of elevation gain in Shenandoah Park. We will meet in Sperryville at 9:00 AM and consolidate carpools. There is extremely little parking available at the trailhead, so DO NOT DRIVE TO THE TRAILHEAD until carpools are formed. For additional info contact firstname.lastname@example.org or cell phone 540/522-6749.
Take I-66 West to Haymarket and US-29. Take US-29 to Warrenton. At Warrenton bypass, veer to the right on US-29 Business route and follow it to US-211 West. Turn right on US-211 West and follow to Sperryville. Park in the large parking lot at the "Schoolhouse" by the golf course. Hike leader will pass out driving directions to the trailhead once carpools are formed.
Carpools will leave at 8:00 AM from the parking lot at Fair Oaks Mall (I-66 exit 57B) near the Cheesecake Factory (near the sign for parking area 17) 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.
Please do not send messages to this email list (it goes to 350 people) coordinating carpool rides, just follow the above procedure.
