    6.25 miles, Rating of 5, Suitable for intermediate hikers looking for a challenge and advanced hikers.  The "Yellowstone of the East" will not disappoint on this collection of 3 summit hikes.

     

    Spend a day hiking in the beautiful Shenandoah National Park. We begin at Marys Rock.  Many legends surround the name of this hike, but there's no denying the westward views that it provides of Shenandoah Valley and Massanutten Mountain. We'll hike 2.9 miles on the Meadow Spring Trail and Appalachian Trail. A moderate trail with 830-foot of elevation gain.

    Next, we'll travel about 13 miles to Hawksbill Gap parking lot. From here we'll hike to Shenandoah's highest summit at 4,051 feet along the Lower Hawksbill Trail. The viewing platform offers a 360° panoramic view of the Shenandoah Valley, Blue Ridge Mountains, and the Virginia Piedmont. A moderate trail with 690-foot of elevation gain. 

    Lastly, we'll travel to Skyland Area for a quick break. Not far is the access point for Stony Man Trail. This is an easier trail that leads to an outstanding view of Shenandoah Valley and Massanutten Mountain and beyond. We'll hike 1.7 miles along the Appalachian Trail with 690-foot of elevation gain. 

    As with all WWO hikes, there will be a leader and a sweep, and no one will be left behind.

    After you complete your registration, you will receive a confirmation email with additional event details and start location.

    35 miles on flat roads and bike trail. For advanced beginners (who can ride the distance) and above. Suitable for all types of bikes.


    Kent Island is the largest island in the Chesapeake Bay and was the location of the first European settlement in Maryland. From its earliest inhabitants (Matapeake Indians) to its present-day status as the gateway to the Eastern Shore, Kent Island has played a vital role in the history of Maryland.

    Join WWO for a stunning ride on Kent Island. We will travel on the paved bike path that traverses the island, detouring to see neighborhoods, many beautiful water views, a community fishing pier, and a lighthouse. There are multiple stops to admire the views.  Moderate social pace, with a leader and a sweep, and no one will be left behind.

     Spanning more than 1,100 acres, Longwood Gardens in Kennett Square, PA is one of the world's great gardens.  With vibant tulips, flowering trees and fountain displays, Springtime at Longwood Gardens could be the most spectacular time of the year.

There is a loft sleeping space with twin beds, primary bedroom on the main floor, and a sleep sofa in the living room.  After an early breakfast on Saturday, we will drive a short distance to Longwood Gardens where we will stroll the amazing manicured gardens, the spacious Meadow Garden with expansive vistas and native plants, marvel at the lights and fountain shows into the evening. Lunch and dinner may be purchased on site. After breakfast on Sunday morning, we can visit the historic town of Kennett Square before heading home. 

    Wear comfortable walking shoes and expect to do a lot of walking!
