Itinerary:
Along this hike, you will see a quarry trench used by the Federals to defend the gap. There are also the ruins of the Chapman House and Ice Storage Pit as well as the Beverley (Chapman) Mill. Some of you may have seen the mill while traveling along I-66 through the gap.

After these ruins, we will traverse up to the top of the mountain which will reward us with a panoramic view west into Faquier County. Here we will stop for lunch. Then it's back down the mountain on a separate trail to the parking lot.

Overall, the hike will be about 5 miles long with an elevation gain of about 1100 feet. This is a moderate hike due to the main uphill climb to the top of the mountain. There will be an option to reward yourself afterwards to join us at a local winery: Le Grange, to taste some wine and take in the fabulous fall scenery

A carpool site will be set up at the Vienna Metro Station off of I-66 in Virginia.
