Disclaimer: The club and its members take no responsibility and will not be held responsible for any injuries or accidents that may occur during club events. Outdoor sports are inherently dangerous and accidents will happen. By joining the club or participating in any events posted on the GayOutdoors web page you are taking responsibility for your own safety and well-being. Anyone with an internet connection can post a trip on the GayOutdoors web site. It is your responsibility to determine if this person has the experience and competence to lead the trip.

Be Prepared: Please be prepared to be self-sufficient. Have your own provisions such as first aid kit, food, water, extra clothing for unplanned weather, etc. Have your EMERGENCY CONTACT SHEET completed and in your backpack; it may save your life, and help reach someone who greatly cares!
Pace: There may be activities when the group is either slower or faster than your current ability. Please know that because this is a group activity, it's hard to accommodate everyone's pace perfectly. Our desire is not to leave anyone, however there have been times when it is in the best interest of all to split up. Please do your part by knowing your own abilities, communicating with the organizer head of time if you would like to start early and have us catch up or fine with finishing on your own.

This park, which was in succession once a quarry, an estate and then an amusement park, is listed in Virginia's Historic Register, and a booklet on the park's history can be purchased from the Friends of Forest Hill Park, a group that also offers volunteer activities in the park.

The park consists of the historic Stone House, once the park manager's home that can now be rented for small meetings or events, a lake, which has been restored in recent years, tennis courts, picnic shelters, a children's playground, and many paths and trails are popular for walking and jogging. A partial wetland, much wildlife can be viewed in the park, and there are also sloping hills for passive recreation. It is well known as a popular sledding site anytime it snows in Richmond, and during the summer months Sunday concerts are hosted in the park.

Take the entrance to the park at 42nd street at New Kent Avenue, Richmond, VA.  Park in the gravel lot adjacent to the first shelter. Meet at the picnic table at the first shelter.
