***We will meetup at Centreville Park and Ride to form carpools and then drive to the trail-head. WE LEAVE AT 7:30AM so please arrive a few minutes before 7:30AM***

Description: We start at the EAST side of Veach Gap/Tuscarora Tr (NOT the trailhead off Fort Valley Rd) and ascend to the Massanutten Tr. We then head north to Stromberg Overlook for views of the South Fork of the Shenandoah River. After lunch, we retrace our path back to the cars.

Note: We may encounter icy conditions and we have one stream crossing so Microspikes or other traction gear is recommended!

Leaders: Becky M. [masked] (C), David Caviness[masked] (C)
