Overall Run/Beecher Ridge Hike(8.5 Miles)

Possibly Frozen waterfall

The Overall Run circuit passes one of the largest continuous waterfalls in Virginia. The trails also go through valley streams and meadows, no wonder this loop is another local hiker favorite. With Beecher Ridge having one of the highest concentrations of Black Bears in the park.

We'll meet at Vienna at 8.15 and leave by 8.30. Metro's website says there is no Orange Line work or any other work scheduled for that weekend. Just keep in mind that metro doesn't start until 7.00 am in the weekends. If you need a ride from a nearby location- post in the comments section.

      I believe the plan is everyone meets at Vienna and we will divide into cars at that point. Olga and I may drive together since we don't live as close to a metro station and meet you all at Vienna.
