Hike and Lunch on Old Rag Trail in Virginia - Shenandoah National Park

Join us for some hike and boulder climbing at Old Rag Mountain in Virginia.  This is a moderate level hike for 8 miles with a section of rock scrambles.  This is a very popular hike so be onsite early as we will leave at 8AM.  Be onsite by 7:45AM as we will leave promptly at 8.

Lunch will be served at the end.

This is a rain or shine activity.




* Comfortable, well-broken-in, sturdy walking shoes or ankle-high boots.
* Wear two pairs of socks; first layer is a thin pair that will absorb moisture (liner sock), and the second layer that will add for comfort and keep your foot dry (wool or thicker sock). Bring an extra pair in case you need to refresh
* Protective clothing should include:
- A hat or scarf for sun and bug protection/bike helmets for protection on bike-rides
- Long comfortable loose fitting pants or shorts with knee socks (for warm weather)
- A cotton blend shirt provides for better perspiration and comfort

* Water canteen or bottle filled with water (at least 1 quart, bring what you feel you can carry or need to drink)
* Light snacks such as nuts and fruit are good for energy
* You may want to change up into dryer clothes at the end, so bring an extra T-shirt and pair of socks
* For bike-rides, a hybrid or road bike is needed



Meet in the parking area of Old Rag Mountain by 8AM.  There is a parking fee of $8  or FREE if you have a National Parks Pass
