As soon as you turn off of Rt. 7 make an immediate right turn into the Bear’s Den VDOT parking lot-

Option 1 – We will meet at Bear’s Den Parking lot and carpool to Morgan’s Mill Road for this 7 mile hike on the Appalachian Trail.  This is a level 4/5 (more strenuous) hike as rated by Hiking Upward. I will lead this hike and Tierri will lead the (Option 2) 9 mile hike below.


We will take our time and allow time to catch our breath on this part of the “AT roller coaster” 🙂  

We will also take some moments in quiet to soak in the beauty of this season and the vistas along the way.

Please bring water, snacks and pack a lunch to enjoy together at one of the AT campsites.  

Option 2 – Tierri Alexandre will lead this 9 mile round trip hike from Bear’s Den (Route 7 parking lot) to Buzzard’s Overlook and back which will add another 2 hours (9:00 to 4:30 pm) 

We look forward to seeing each of you who are able to fit this into your schedule.
