VSDC Hiking at Sky Meadows State Park

As vegetarians and vegans, we are preserving the beauty of our planet. Let's celebrate our contribution to the world community by hiking at Sky Meadows State Park.

WHEN: 10:00 am (at trailhead) on Saturday, June 15, 2013
ADDRESS: 11012 Edmonds Lane, Delaplane, VA 20144
DIRECTIONS: Go to Hikingupward.com
CARPOOL LOCATION: Vienna Metro Station located at 2900 Nutley St, Vienna Virginia. Directions to the Metro Station are here. If carpooling, be at carpool location by 9:00 am.
HIKE LEVEL: Beginners.
MILEAGE: 8.4

There is a $4.00 parking fee. Please let us know if you plan to bring a dog. If more than one dog is brought, for their sake, they need to be well-socialized. I will send an email the day before the hike to cancel the hike if the forecast is for significant rain. So, check your email before you leave home and/or check the weather report!

Thanks to Susan for the idea and volunteering to help lead this event! See Susan's Recommended Gear:

    Thanks so much for organizing the hike! It would have been great to have more explicit instructions about where to meet at Vienna (ie North/South, near the bike lockers, a screen capture from google maps would have been a good idea, too). Thanks for coming prepared with color printed maps!

    I noticed that the Vienna metro station is at 9550 Saintsbury Dr
    Fairfax, VA according to Google maps. It would be great if you could confirm we are meeting in the metro station parking lot and not at 2900 Nutley, which appears to be an address closer to the intersection with Lee Hwy.

    Forecast for Delaplane, VA is for 82F and sunny! Sunscreen and hats are good ideas.

    Great, I'm off the wait list! I will be @ Vienna metro @ said time. If not enough drivers, I can drive. FYI, lots of dog hair in my car, although I'm not taking my dog (she is a senior/arthritic & wouldn't make it).
