Hiking at Wildcat Mountain & Corn Maize at The Plains

Please come join me at Wildcat Mountain for a hike at one of Virginia's hidden jewels. Managed by The Nature Conservancy the Wildcat Mountain Natural Area is situated on a plateau between three mountains, and has a virtual labyrinth of hiking trails. We will be doing the 3 mile loop hike and then afterwards we will head down the road to the Corn Maze at The Plains for a few more hours of fun.  

We will meet at Wildcat Mountain the end of the parking lot by the gravel road at 12:00pm and then head out for the hike at 12:15pm. The hike will take about 2 hours. Below is the link to the trail map: http://www.hikingupward.com/OVH/WildcatMountain/ Just enter your address on the page and hit get directions.

After the hike we will drive about 15 minutes down the road over to The Corn Maze in the Plains for a few more hours of fun and getting lost in a corn maze. The cost per person for the maze is $10.00 and you will need to pay for this yourself at the time of arrival. Below is a link with more information on the Corn Maze.

Looking forward to seeing you all there.
