For this very popular 9.5 mi circuit, with 2400 ft elevation gain, and great views of the valley, we’ll arrive early to get a space in the (recently enlarged) parking lot. We’ll plan to do the circuit in around 5 hours total time including breaks, depending on weather and how the group feels. That means a moderate pace, not too slow, between 4 to 4.5 hours moving time. We can coach you on the rock scramble if you want suggestions. It’s a lot of fun! Three main breaks for photos and snacks: the vista just before the rock scramble; a great vista just over halfway up the scramble; and of course the summit, where we’ll plan to have lunch. Plus a few shorter breaks.

You will need:
Hiking boots or trail running shoes with good traction.
At least 2 quarts of water.
These are required! More water if the day is hot.
Lunch.

All participants must be fit enough to do this hike at a moderate pace. You can call me the week before, if you aren’t sure about your fitness for the hike.

No dogs are allowed on the trail.

Two days before the hike I’ll look at weather forecasts, to make sure the trail will be dry enough, and that there will be very little or no rain during the hike.

Leader Frank McFadden [masked]) to message or call during the week before the hike. Please let me know if you would like to meet at the Old Rag Parking lot. Driving time from the Centreville Park & Ride is about 1:30 - a few minutes more with a pit stop.

One park pass or $30 park entry fee per car; $6 carpool fee for riders.
