Please join us at 11 a.m. on Sunday, May 7 for a moderate 7-mile circuit hike at Prince William Forest Park. This beautiful national park features 37 miles of trails and is the largest protected natural area in the Washington, D.C., metropolitan region. It was built by the CCC in 1936 as a children's camp. Some of the cabins are listed on the National Historic Register.
Our route will take us across small streams and through pristine meadows and quiet forests. If you haven't visited this park, you'll be amazed by its beauty and peacefulness.
This is not a difficult hike, but I'm marking it as moderate because there is one significant hill at the end.
Here are the details: Meet at the Prince William Forest Park Visitor Center. (This is about 1/2 mile into the park.) https://www.nps.gov/prwi/index.htm
There is a $5 entry fee.
The hike will take 3.5 hours or more, depending on our pace. We'll eat lunch on the trail at about 12:30 p.m.
