Let's take a road trip to Southwestern VA and go to the Mother of all Trail Festivals in Damascus, VA! This is a huge party all weekend long with gear reps, great music and fun. Details are here:
One of my favorite and wildest events year in and year out, so a classic WB annual event! We will hike Mt. Rogers early on Saturday morning and on Sunday can bike the Virginia Creeper Trail, which is rated the best Rail toTrail Conversion in the East, or hike Dragon's Tooth on the way back home on Sunday or any combination. Camping is $5 for the weekend and $20 per vehicle to park, details here:
We will be eating dutch oven gourmet and sampling some of the local cuisine. So chime in on the discussion I will post! This is a 6 hour drive from Centreville and a great weekend as you will be spending time with some of the best hikers/backpackers in the world and have some of the less well known, yet best gear vendors there to oogle over their latest wares! Oh and of course it is a huge party all weekend long, as usual on our trips, as those who have done it in year's past can attest! So time to saddle up for another classic annual Washington Backpacker's Meetup!
