Rehoboth Beach Excursion, Delaware
Special Bus Route: Bus leaves from 16th and I St., NW at 8:00 a.m. and New Carrollton Metro at 8:20 a.m.
$45 (nonmembers $50).
Enjoy restaurants, shops, the boardwalk – and, of course, the magnificent beach – on this trip to the popular Atlantic Coast resort town. There’ll be hiking, too! Our trip to Rehoboth, in the light-traffic middle day of the holiday weekend, will follow a special routing, stopping first to drop interested hikers off at Delaware Seashore State Park just south of Dewey Beach. From there they can hoof it along the beach to Rehoboth.
*** Special Bus Route *** As street parking at the Downtown DC stop is restricted on Saturday, for those driving to meet the bus boarding at the New Carrollton Metro stop is recommended with free parking on the weekend in the Metro lots. (Note: there are also private lots at this station.)
At the New Carrollton Station the bus will stop on the Eastside, or Highway 50 side, at the second bus bay marked with a circled B, for routes B21, B22 and C28.
Leaders: Brian O’Konski 202--362--2982 and Steven Shore 410--992--5482

Reservations: The Capital Hiking Club is a non-profit group, and the public is invited to join on all trips. Early reservations are appreciated! While reservations are accepted Friday, making your reservation prior to Thursday evening helps to ensure your seat on the bus, and prevents the cancellation of the hike due to low sign-ups.
If contacting hike leaders during the week of the hike, please place calls prior to 9:30 p.m. As a courtesy to other hikers and to the hike leaders, please cancel as early as possible, so that your reserved spot may be given to someone else.
