For 99.9% of hikes carpooling is not optional but required (due to the nature of our trips and limited parking). Before each trip the participants will receive an email asking questions to help coordinate carpools. Carpools are ALWAYS arranged in advance.

For almost all trips we'll be using these two usual carpool locations. One in Newport News and one in Virginia Beach. Please remember to bring cash with you to chip in for gas. Every vehicle will decide how much everyone needs to chip in to the driver to cover gas/entry fees (if needed).

If on a trip description you see “our usual carpool locations” these are what we are talking about. They are as follows:

Newport News: Office Max at Yoder Plaza Shopping Center located at 12144 Jefferson Ave. It is right near Patrick Henry Mall. We will meet on the far side of the parking lot from the actual store, so when you park your car will actually face the road. For most trips the Virginia Beach group will carpool to Newport News as it’s on the way out of town, so you will normally always see a large group gathered.

Virginia Beach: BB&T Bank at Pembroke Mall located at 4599 Virginia Beach Blvd. When you come off of 264 you will follow Independence Blvd through the Virginia Beach Blvd light, you’ll make the first right after the light. When you hit the 4-way intersection (in the mall parking lot) make the first right. You should then be right behind BB&T.
