Hiking Meetup - Billy Goat Trail

 

 

MEET BY THE REFRESHMENT STAND

Hey guys! It's the summertime and it's about time we've had another meetup. We're going to hike the Billy Goat trail off the Potomac River. It's not too difficult but a little rocky, so be prepared. It's got gorgeous views over the river and It'll take between 1-2 hours to get through the whole thing. It's going to be hot so bring a lot of water.

We're going to meet up at 1:00pm this Saturday at the Chesapeake and Ohio Canal National Historical Park, Great Falls Tavern Visitor Center. Please RSVP for the event here: http://www.meetup.com/Nova-Redditors/events/121560192/

If you need a ride I've got space for 4 other people, I'm located in Herndon.

    Awesome! It was a challenge for some, since we went off the beaten track, but they were really hardy troopers! I hope you all have some great - if somewhat painful - memories of our foray into the rocks along the river side.

    That was a ton of fun. Thank you to everybody who completed (and put up with) the off-trail rock scrambling!

    The (map) link exact location above is actually a park bench on the traffic circle. The "Visitor's Center" is further south, but a better place to meet is the Refreshment Stand that's closer to the parking lot (to the north). There's picnic tables. I'm a 6 ft tall 40 something white guy who looks like a geek - I'll be there (or at the park bench) with a tan Mercedes baseball cap and a big blue backpack. Here's a graphic:

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
