Let’s stretch our legs and enjoy beautiful views of Virginia’s piedmont from the trails at Sky Meadows State Park, in Delaplane, Just south of Paris VA. The Park has 20 miles of trails that crisscross over its 1,618 acres. Varied topography makes the trails interesting to hike.
From the Visitor Center we will take a leisurely 3 – 4 hour hike over 5.5 miles of trails. An elevation gain of a little over 1,000 feet will make for good mid-winter exercise.
Dress for the weather and the unexpected. Wear layers, gloves, warm hat, rain/wind shell, water, lunch, snacks, pack and anything else you would bring for a hike in the foothills of the Appalachians. We will be having lunch on the trail.
