Everyone is welcome however preregistration is strongly encouraged.

Participants should plan to meet at 4:00 p.m. at the Skyland Wayside near Milepost 42 on Skyline Drive.

Those who would like to carpool from the Eastern Panhandle should plan to meet at 1:30 p.m. in the Food Lion parking lot in the Somerset shopping center on Route 340 just east of Charles Town.

Participants should wear sturdy hiking shoes or boots, dress appropriately for prevailing weather conditions, and bring along water, insect repellent and sun protection.

The hikes will take place rain or shine, but they will be cancelled in the event of severe weather.
