Hike Turkey Run Park- Pho Lunch, VA Sunday March 9

Hike Turkey Run Park- Pho Lunch, VA Sunday March 9

With the cold winter weather starting to recede, this is a great way to start heading back outside with views of the Potomac. This is a 3 to 4 mile loop hike along the Potomac river just below the American Legion bridge off the GW parkway. The trail is mostly easy and flat, but there are some slightly rocky areas.

For more info and maps (see side links):

Good hiking shoes

Water

Camera 

Meet:

Time 9:00

Where: Parking Lot C-1. (First parking lot when entering park. See map at link above for details)

Park Trail Map

Departure:

Time: 9:15 sharp.

In your RSVP please indicate if you need a ride. If you are coming by car and wouldn’t mind picking someone up at a nearby metro stop, please indicate how many people you can take. We should have enough room for everyone. I can pick up three at Braddock Road metro (yellow).


We should return to the parking lot no later than 11:30 am. For those interested, we can later head over to nearby Pho 75 (1721 Wilson Blvd) for a hot lunch. Note: it’s cash only.

Note: This event is cross-posted with other groups.

    Hi! Anyone have room in their car for one more? I live in Ballston, so anywhere metro accessible would be excellent. Happy to give $$ for gas.

      There is a Starbucks at 901 Stuart I believe. I'll be there at 8:30(ish). I will have a blue plaid scarf so I'm easy to spot. Let me know if here is a better location.
