Hiking Protocol:

Monday hikers meet in the Senior Center parking lot and leave at 9 am. Driving time to the trailhead varies between 1/2h to 1 ½ hour. Return time is generally between 3 pm and 4 pm. We hike roughly 6 miles with an elevation change between 1,200 ft to 2,500 ft. Bring lunch, water, a change of shoes with a bag for muddy boots, plus $5.00 for the carpool driver. Wear appropriate clothing. Sneakers are not adequate. For wintry weather we require traction devices. Trekking poles are also quite helpful. We encourage a spirit of camaraderie and welcome new hikers, but bear in mind that rambling about the Blue Ridge can be a rigorous enterprise   Contact Anne Colgate at amc16633@hotmail.com or 301-938-9741 (cell) for inclusion on the email list for final updates or changes; before a hike, check your email the previous night & early morning.
