We will gather in the main parking lot for a beautiful springtime hike at Sky Meadows State Park. Sky Meadows offers 16 miles of hiking trails including a connection to 3 miles on the Appalachian Trail.

Our hike will begin in the main parking lot ($5 per car parking fee) and continue along a mixture of beautiful and diverse environments including ascending the mountain along a rocky creek bed, traversing a beautiful ridge top meadow and enjoying the expansive vista overlook Virginia wine and horse country. This is one of my favorite hikes in the area. Please bring a packed lunch, snacks and plenty of water.

This is a moderately challenging hike with some rocky sections and uphill climbs.
