Take a hike with Women Outdoors Mid-Atlantic this autumn. We have four hikes lined up between now and the end of the year with lots of opportunities to enjoy the fall colors and natural beauty of our area.
We start our fall hiking season on Saturday, October 27, at Harpers Ferry, WV, where we’ll hike Loudoun Heights
, a moderately strenuous 5-mile hike with an elevation gain of 1200 feet and views of the Potomac and Shenandoah rivers. Registration closes on Thursday, October 25.
Our other hikes this fall include:
- Hawksbill Mountain Hike in Shenandoah National Park on Saturday, November 10, where we’ll bag the highest peak in SNP and be treated to a 360-degree view of the Shenandoah Valley.
- Sugarloaf Mountain Hike in Frederick County, MD, on Saturday, November 24. Leave the malls and madness behind and enjoy a 5-mile hike on Thanksgiving weekend.
- Billy Goat Trail Section B Hike in Potomac, MD, on Saturday, December 8. Not as famous (or nearly as strenuous) as Section A, this segment of the Billy Goat Trail offers some nice rock outcroppings and a variety of scenery along the Potomac River.
