• What we’ll do
The weather looks perfect for Sunday. We will gather in the parking lot on for a 3 mile round trip hike at Balls Bluff Regional Park.

We will enjoy a leisurely hike on the hiking trails traversing the forest and bluffs just above the river and connecting the beautiful Potomac Heritage Trail before our return trip. There are some ups and downs and the trail will be muddy is some places so wear appropriate footwear. There are no long steep ascents but some smaller hills to climb.

We will arrange a time for some Forest Soaking to deepen our experience in nature. https://www.npr.org/sections/health-shots/2017/07/17/536676954/forest-bathing-a-retreat-to-nature-can-boost-immunity-and-mood
