Blue Ridge hike set for March 2
Hikers of all ages and abilities are welcome to join veteran hiker Dave Michener for an easy hike along the Appalachian Trail in the Keys Gap area of the Blue Ridge on Saturday, March 2.
The hike is being sponsored by the Potomac Valley Audubon Society.
There will be no fee and everyone is welcome to participate.
Meet at 9 a.m. in the Keyes Gap parking lot on Route 9, east of the Shenandoah River, just before the Virginia state line. This parking lot is very small, so carpooling is recommended.
The hike will last about one hour over easy terrain.
Participants should wear sturdy hiking shoes or boots and dress appropriately for the prevailing weather conditions.
Pre-registration is not required, but it is encouraged. To pre-register or get more information, contact Michener at 703-973-6435.
