Lets explore a less well known section of the Potomac Heritage National Scenic Trail from River Look Ct to Bles Park a distance of about 6 miles along Goose Creek and the Potomac River.
We’ll meet at Bles Park and run a shuttle to River Look then hike back to Bles Park. Would need to retrieve shuttle vehicles at the end of the hike.
IMPORTANT RSVP INFO:
I limit the RSVPs to 15 with a wait list. Since this event is posted to both the Imagine & “Lets Take a Hike…” meetup groups, I spread the available openings across both meetup groups. If this meetup is already wait listed, click ***THIS LINK*** to check the other meetup because it still might have some openings. Please be certain you plan on attending before you RSVP. If you RSVP and your plans change… no worries. Just be sure to update your status so someone else on the wait list can jump in if they want. Your cooperation is appreciated.
LENGTH: About 6 miles (Maybe 7 if we explore up Broad Run a little ways near the end of the hike)
ELEVATION GAIN: None
DURATION: Approximately 3 hours.
POST WALK MERRIMENT:-)
Afterwards, for those that care to, a visit to
Uncle Julio’s (44703 Thorndike St, Ashburn, VA 20147) is planned.
