Hike the Little River area

Location:

Community-Wide

Event Type(s): Other
Organization: Wild Virgina
Description:

The Little River Roadless Area.
This hike will start at 10 am on Lynn Trail (1.2 miles) just north of Briery Branch reservoir in the George Washington National Forest.  We will continue on to Timber Ridge Trail (0.7 mile).  Based on trail conditions, the group will decide how far to proceed on Timber Ridge Trail, then return and descend Wolf Ridge Trail (4.5 miles).  There is a moderate stream crossing 3/4 mile from the end of Wolf Ridge Trail. 

Hike Leader:  Chris Bowlen, (540) 289-6801.  Moderate difficulty, 6.5+ miles.  Be sure to call and sign up.  We need cars in 2 locations since weather or trail conditions could change the hike.   To carpool from Charlottesville, meet at Java Java (2214 Ivy Road, near Sneak Reviews) at 8:15 am.

The Little River Roadless Area is the largest inventoried roadless area in Virginia.  Get a feel for the expanse of mature oak forests on this hike and see why this area meets the criteria for Wilderness designation.  Join Ernie Reed for a full weekend in this area.  Ernie will be hiking and then camping overnight Saturday March 7, and will meet up with the March 8 hike.  To be part of the extended weekend trip, contact Ernie at (434) 971-1647.
