Description: 11/6/19 THREE FALLS HIKE do-over
A do-over from that rainy Wednesday last month. (I hope, just by posting, I don't change the forecast from sunny to rainy!)
I (re)propose a 9 mile circuit hike in the Central District of SNP beginning and ending at the Byrd Visitor Center parking lot at Big Meadows. We will meet there at 9:30am. Carpools should leave from Fair Oaks Mall and other carpool sites (see below) at 7:30am.
Directions to the trail head and the usual blurb about carpooling follow. A trail map is attached. We will hike in a clockwise direction. Hope to see you Wednesday!
Take I-66 W toward Front Royal.
Merge onto Lee Hwy/US-29 S via EXIT 43A toward Warrenton/Gainesville.
Take the US-15 Bus/US-211 W ramp toward Luray/Warrenton/US-29 Bus.
Merge onto E Lee Hwy.
Turn right onto Frost Ave/US-211 W. Continue to follow US-211 W to Sperryville (34 miles)
Take slight right onto ramp towards Skyline Drive's Thornton Gap Entrance

Byrd Visitor Center and the parking lot where we'll meet is at MP51
Carpools should 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 will be no room for one individual, that person would need to drive themselves.
Please do not send messages to this email list coordinating carpool rides, just follow the above procedure.
