Five Mile Hike in the Bull Run Mountain area

Location visible to members

Details

This hike will be five miles round trip at 3 mph on wooded trails, with about 1000 ft elevation gain. Due to the elevation gain, this is not a great hike for beginners, so I ask that you please confirm with me that you've done hikes with elevation gain in the past year before signing up/attending. Please ask if any questions. Beautiful views at the top. The trail can be muddy, so please wear good hiking boots. We will take a break at the top, so please bring a snack and water if you like.

To trailhead, Exit I-66 at Haymarket and turn right onto Rt 55 west. From Rt 55, turn onto Turner Road. Go over I-66 and make an immediate left onto Beverly Mill Drive. Bull Run Mountain Conservancy is at the end of the street on the left. (Lat:38.8248 Lon:-77.7057). Parking lot is small, so we are hiking early to beat the crowds.
