Hiking @ Great Falls

Let's take in some scenery and greenery! Grab your walking shoes and get ready to hike. We'll be walking approximately 4 mi. total along the Potomac River, on the beautiful Potomac Heritage trail. We'll meet outside the visitor's center, at the park entrance, make our way out to the falls then head back again. Bring a enough drinking water for the walk and vegan lunch for yourself. We'll stop at the falls to eat. If you'd like, feel free to bring something to share as well!  Everyone is welcome (as well as guests).  I think nature will have enough space for us!

      Despite not everyone showing up who said they would, we still had a great time. Aly is well-familiarized with the area so she was excellent leading the hike. And on top of that an awesome cook too! Aly, I need that cookie recipe when you get a chance pleeease.

    If only 2 people are coming besides me, I think we could change the time to 11 am instead of 9. However, If I don't here back from both of you by tomorrow morning, I'll be at the park at 9 am just in case :)

      Don't worry I'll be too. I over slept. And we're in no rush :)

    There have been other veg groups that I'm affiliated with who have done this hike but I could never make it. I can make it this time though. Im driving a Black Subaru Impreza - older model. Can't go to the meeting afterwards though.

      Great! Park in the parking lot to the right when you get there and bring a vegan lunch for yourself :)

      If it helps, we'll be going in the morning so we can go straight to the meeting from the park. Sorry I did not see your comment until now!

    If anyone wants a ride, I'll be leaving my house in Herndon at around 8:20 am. I have 3 spaces in my car so if that's convenient for you let me know.

    If you'll be meeting us at the park, once you enter the park you'll travel down a short road into the woods. As you drive up to the park facilities, at the Riverbend Park sign, park in the parking lot to the left.

    Also, just so you're aware, I planned the trip to end at 1 pm so we could drive directly to the meeting. Vienna is about 25 minutes away from Riverbend.

    I hope you can come Anne!

    Oops! I thought Poplar was the 11th. My bad! I think I'll change the date then because that would make it a pretty full day right?

    April 24, 2013

    • Leila V.

      Sorry, you were right. Poplar is the 11th so this is better on the 4th. Sorry!

      April 24, 2013

    • Aly S.

      No problem :)

    And the time. Make it earlier. I want everyone to get to the meeting.
