Announcing a new Meetup for NOVA Trail Dogs Hiking Club!

What: Massanutten Mountain Hiking and Shenandoah River Canoeing

When: June 5,[masked]:00 PM

Price: $35.00 per person

Where: (A location has not been chosen yet.)

Meetup Description: Always wanted to hike and canoe at the same time? Well, this is the trip for you! This outing is an out-and-back excursion. We will be going to the North half of Massanutten Mountain (65 Miles away from DC) and camp at Little Crease Shelter on Friday evening. Saturday we will hike approximately 13+ miles along a vista equipped rocky mountain ridge on the Massanutten Trail and camp near Shenandoah River at a secret campsite :) We might have to carry water for a full hiking day as water is sparse on this trail. Sunday we will meet our canoes at the river. The nice people from the canoe rental shop will take our gear, so no need to fear that your gear will get wet. We will canoe down the river (approximately 5 hours) to Downriver Outfitters and shuttle to our cars from there.

Fee will be $35.00 for canoeing. This will need to be paid upfront. Any additional fees will be due on site.

This trip is combined with MidAtlantic Backpackers and is designed for people with more experience than our typical hikes require. Alternatively, you are able to break this up and join us for just the hiking or just the canoeing.

More info and additional details to come when we get closer to the date.
