15 mile Bull Run-dezvous hike and Wine down finale

Come out with us for a day hike in the wine country!

The Bull Run Mountains are the most easterly chain in the Piedmont, and they protect the headwaters of two major watersheds: Occoquan and Goose Creek. Seven perennial streams originate in the mountains. Approximately 45 miles from Washington, D.C., the mountains are part of an important greenbelt around the nation's capital and are vital because of their proximity to ever-increasing population and development.

We will carpool from Centreville park and ride to the winery, as our hike begins and ends there. This hike begins on a normal Virginia country road, and will take us through one or more loops to our summit on Bull Run. And if you forget your cheese, you can always just hang out at the winery till we get back!

Trail details:

Winery details:

http://www.wineryatlagrange.com/ourwines.html

Even if you have no interest in wines, come along get outdoors and cheer on the wino's of the group, its sure to be a good time!

We expect to be back in Centreville shortly after dark.

I will send an update on the weather conditions shortly before the event, but its always best to come prepared for any weather that presents itself!

In case you need a ride or can offer one, let people know in the comments section.

Dogs are welcome on the trip. It is the responsibility of the owner that the dog is trail experienced and well socialized with other dogs.

  • marc

    Great to see so many signed up! Hope we can make the most of this trip, and it looks like there will be a few surprises on the hike! I'll bet there will be quite a few rosy cheeks before we even get to the winery! There will likely be fresh snow, and remember that we will be doing close to a full and exciting 15 miles. The forecast is for a cool, sunny morning, but please come prepared! http://www.wunderground.com/cgi-bin/findweather/getForecast?query=20137&hourly=1&yday=54&weekday=Sunday
    See you all Sunday!

    Hey All, After spending the past couple days recovering from food poisoning (I vow to never visit Baja Fresh again), I think I'm best off backing out of this hike and opening the spot up to someone else. See you on the trails soon!

    February 20, 2013

    • marc

      Sorry to hear that, let us know again on Saturday...

      February 21, 2013

  • Alicia

      February 20, 2013

  • Alicia

    If I drove straight there..do you have a exact address, or just the bull run mountain conservatory?

    February 19, 2013

    • marc

      If you want to hike with the group, then its the park and ride!

      February 20, 2013

    • marc

      Hi Jenn. We are so close to the winery, it won't be much extra, but if you have a full car, then that's fine
