Difficult Run - Middle Section

We will hike along the Faifax County Cross-County Trail up Difficult Run from Lawyers Road to Vale Road (see http://www.fairfaxcounty.gov/parks/cct/cctoverview.htm), then back. This remarkably undisturbed valley provides a pleasant outing in the midst of suburbia. We will learn about the flora and fauna, as well as something about the history of human habitation along the stream. The trail is dirt or gravel, mostly level, with one stream crossing.

Distance: 7 miles

Dogs: Allowed, leashed

Guest Expert: Samira Meyercord, wetlands scientist

Leader: Ken Meyercord, (571)[masked]

Directions: From the beltway, take the Dulles Toll Road (Rt. 267) towards Reston. Exit at Hunters Mill Rd. Left on Hunters Mill, then right onto Sunrise Valley Dr. at the light. Go about half a mile, then left at the light onto South Lakes Dr., then left at the next light onto Twin Branches Rd. The Lake Audubon pool is on the right just before the lake.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
