Hike in Shenandoah (Little Devil Stairs) this saturday

Responding to popular request, I have set up a hike for this saturday in the Shenandoah national park.

We will carpool from the East falls church metro station to the trailhead near Sperryville, on county road 614 (Keyser run road) and hike the Little Devil Stairs trail. Total distance is about 6 miles. Parts of it involve hiking over rocky, steep terrain, so it could be challenging to beginners. But if you are in decent shape and open to a little adventure it shouldn't be a problem. Optional drive on Skyline drive on way back to DC, provided it is open. I strongly urge everyone to carpool from East falls church. It will be hard to manage the logistics otherwise (you might be better off going by yourself, in that case!). It is a long ways from the metro station (about 70 miles).

Maps of the trail at http://www.hikingupwa...­ Note that we will be starting at a different location from what is suggested there.

Also at http://www.nps.gov/sh...­ This one marks the parking lot where we will start.

Meet by 9 am in the metro station parking lot near 19th st (NOT 19th Rd) and Sycamore st. We will leave shortly thereafter.

Please dress in layers and bring enough water and a picnic lunch.

I expect the hike to take a total of 5 hours, including lunch. We should be back at East falls church by 6pm.

Please let us know if you are driving. I will need a ride myself.

Will send my cell number to all yes rsvp's on friday night.
