Not a morning person, but love a challenging day hike and being in the great outdoors? This is the Meetup for YOU! Come explore picturesque hikes all around the mid-Atlantic area and make new friends along the way. Proper gear will be required; this is not a Meetup for inexperienced or new hikers
Buzzard Rock is a moderate to challenging 7.5 mile hike on the north end of George Washington National Forest. We'll meet at the trailhead promptly at 10:30 and attempt to complete the hike in 3 hours (2-2.5mph pace). Afterwards we'll head to PaveMint Taproom in nearby Front Royal for local beers and late lunch.
There is limited parking at the Buzzard Rock Trailhead off of Mountain Road and VA 619, so carpooling is encouraged. Carpooling is available from Arlington upon request - please comment or direct message to coordinate and be prepared to chip in for gas & tolls. Please use Google link or GPS coordinates for exact directions:[masked], [masked]
