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 is a new series of hikes I'm trying out for those that can't meet on Sundays.  It will be on the 3rd Saturday of the month.  Lunch Location TBD after the Hike}

We did this hike this past summer so I thought it would be interesting to do the hike in winter.  Come join us for a winter hike along the banks of Lake Anna.  We'll stop by an old smoke house which was part of a plantation in the 1800s.  We'll have a snack on the shores of Laka Anna at one of the picnic tables.

The hike will last 2 hours and cover about 6 easy miles with plenty of places to rest. 

BRING: Water or a hot beverage plus snacks.  Park Info:

Driving directions to the location and spot to meet at:

Use your GPS and head to 6800 Lawyers Road, Spotsylvania, VA 22551.  We'll meet at the small parking, just a 1/2 mile from the Park Office (not to be confused with the entrance gatehouse or Contact Station).

After paying your entrance fee, drive down State Park Lane towards the Park Office.  When you see the Park Office or the sign for it, drive past it about a hundred feet or so and take a left at the NEXT ROAD.  Drive down approximately 1/2 mile to the small parking lot which will be on your right (The P on the map) where Mill Pond and Turkey Run trails meet.  Look for a White Honda Accord or Light Green Subaru Forester.  Cell service is spotty in the park so trying to call if you are lost or late could be a problem.
