    snow covered trail and surrounds and clear view of snow-covered landscape through bare trees made was serene, and we did some heart-pumping inclines.

    Hi Marcia. Is there an address I can use to GPS my way there? I don't have a car and will be using Zip Car but I need to check how many miles it is there and back as they have a limitation on that.

      Bunmi, there is no address just directions. The Rt. turn you will make off of Rt. 7 is called Pine Grove Rd. which is also 679. You can call if you like....703-[masked]

    Sounds like a wonderful way to start the new year. If I'm coherent at 7 a.m., I will be there.
