    Hi I'm new to this group. I'm really excited to get back in the mountains! Does anyone have any extra spaces in their car? I live in DC but I can bike to the East Falls church metro if that's easiest.

      I don't think anyone is too far out of the way, I don't mind picking up from where ever. You can text me at[masked] and we can make the arrangements. I also have room for one more if anyone else is coming from that side of the beltway that needs a ride.

    This is a tough hike. It is possible there may be ice on Little Devils Stairs, in which case reliable traction gear is a must. I will be in touch with SNP authorities and will post likely conditions a few days prior to the hike.
