Easter Day Hike and Lunch along the Scots Run Nature Preserve in Virginia

Join us on Easter morning along the Scots Run Trail in Virginia.  This is an easy to moderate level hike for 6 miles with some small inclines.  We start in the Scots Run Nature Reserve parking area views along the Potomac River.

Lunch will be served at the end.

This is a rain or shine activity.



Register on this site or


* 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

    I'm not going to make this hike today....I injured my knee playing flag football yesterday. I was hoping by this morning it would be better but It's still swollen and painful...sorry. I really wanted to do this...looks like a beautiful day! enjoy

    This would be great after church... around 1pm.

      I agree, but the problem with the later timing is that the parking area gets full and then limits the number of people that can participate. The time is scheduled for 11AM which is later than the usual 9AM starting time.

      I would love to go too, but church is at 11am. Last I was in the area and it was very crowded!
