Come start the New Year at Old Rag. It is the perfect time of year to hit this very popular trail. Crowds should be to a minimum with the colder temps and the holiday season upon us. If you have never been on this hike it offers amazing views of Shenandoah. It can be quite a challenge to get to the top along 9 switchback trails and some rock scrambling but the view is worth it. The hike will be 8.8 miles but quite challenging so please take this into account when registering.

More info can be found at this web site.

For those interested we will stop at a winery post hike for some food and good cheer, making this a full day excursion! More details to come closer to the event.
