We will be traveling up the riparian Staunton River Trail to Bear Church Rock for a scenic view, then up Jones Mountain/Cat Knob Trail to Laurel Prong Trail and onward to Camp Rapidan, a historical site maintained by the Park Service. Camp Rapidan was the sylvan summer retreat of President Hoover, where we will take in the ambience and have lunch.
