Prince William Forest Hike 7.5 miles
• What we'll do This will be a 7.5 mile hike with an elevation gain of 500 feet. We will use the High Meadow, South Valley, Turkey Run Ridge Trail trails. No big hills, just rolling terrain. Trails are in good shape but with some rocky sections. We will stop about half way for a snack/lunch break. We will hike at a 2.5 - 3 mile an hour pace. The hike should be finished about 2:30 pm. Meet at 9:45, sign in and get started at 10:00. Traffic on 95 should be OK southbound but plan accordingly. Turkey Run parking is about a 5 - 8 minute drive from the park entrance. Remember: this is not the visitor's parking lot near the entrance. If needed I can be contacted at[masked] (Patricia) • What to bring water, rain jacket and warm layers for the weather and lunch/snacks • Important to know A Park Fee of $10 or National Park Pass is required for entrance.
