$30 members, $45 non-members
Level: 7.0 miles
Experienced beginners and above.
Spring may be in the air but this is winter backpacking at its best! Sky Meadows is only an hour from the DC area, and offers many primitive camping amenities that other campsites do not offer. It is a short one mile to our base campsite, and then we will day-hike the wintry pastures and woodlands of the Park that are particularly picturesque this time of the year. After hiking, we will enjoy a campfire and campsite cooking. On Sunday, we will break camp, hike back to our cars and stop a local Virginia winery before heading home.
Gear sharing, meal planning, carpooling and all other details will be worked out by email the week before the trip.
WWO has a limited amount of backpacking equipment to lend as member benefit.
This trip is Saturday to Sunday. This trip is metro accessible.
Registration Deadline: Wednesday, February 20, 2019
