Community Hike: Sky Meadows – Lost Mountain

January 1, 2019 @ 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Start the new year on the good foot! Everyone welcome — families, friends, kids. A beautiful hike at Sky Meadows State Park on the Lost Mountain side (30 minutes from Round Hill).

We’re supporting two hikes, you are free to choose the shorter or longer route. Hike B includes Hike A, but adds an extension for a longer walk.

Hike A
Distance = Rolling Meadows trail, approx. 2.5 miles
Difficulty = ( Easy)

Hike B.
Distance = Rolling Meadows (2.5 miles) + Lost Mtn (2.2miles)= 4.7 miles total
Difficulty= some easy and some more difficult, including a climb

You can find a trail guide here –> http://www.dcr.virginia.gov/state-parks/document/data/trail-guide-skymeadows.pdf

Bring whatever you need to stay comfortable: water, snacks, comfortable shoes, warm jacket, hat, gloves, etc…

A few simple notes:
— The hike will happen rain or shine.
— The trailhead parking lot is on the East side of Rte 17, the Lost Mountain side (opposite side from the main park entrance and house).
— Hike begins @ noon (no waiting for latecomers)
— Plan to arrive at least 5 minutes early. Folks will need to sign-in, which includes a simple waiver form.
— There is no waitlist. All comers are welcome.

As always, it’s important to know your own abilities and stay within them.

See you there!
