2014 being an even year, we'll be on the Maryland side of Great Falls for our annual New Years Day jaunt, starting with a walk down the C&O Canal from Great Falls Tavern to the Falls overlook. Then we'll head back past the Tavern and the parking lots onto some lightly-used woodsy trails taking us upstream towards what was once known as (we kid you not) the Glory Hole gold mine. Total length of this easy round-trip hike should not exceed 5 miles, with some hilly, rough and/or muddy terrain to negotiate en route. Bring beverages, lunch, and seasonally appropriate goodies to share, and dress in layers. Meet at 11 a.m. by the Dupont Circle Metro Station elevator entrance on Connecticut Avenue NW just south of Q Street, or else on the plaza between Great Falls Tavern and the pedestrian bridge over the C&O Canal at 11:45 a.m. Transportation and trip fees should be under $5. Please contact the trip leader in advance to say where you'll meet him and whether you can be a carpool driver (if you're meeting at the Dupont Circle Metro).
