Echols Dorm: Brick Wall By Side Door
Riprap Hollow, Shenandoah Park
*DRIVERS AND THOSE WITH SNP PARK PASS GET PRIORITY*
A lot of you may want to take a sunrise hike that doesn’t involve scaling up Humpback for the millionth time (me included). I’m gonna lead a trip to Rip Rap, which is like a 10 mile loop BUT WE WILL ONLY DO A TOTAL OF 3 MILES ISH. Est. sunrise time is 6:55am.
Here’s the plan: Meet at Echols at 5:15am. Don’t be late! Fill up gas if people need it. Drive over, arrive around 6:15? prolly. Hike 1.4m ish to Chimney Rock (we’ll have 2 vista points). Eat some brekky. Hike back to the lot. Get back to Echols around 9:15/9:30.
Things you should bring:
-WARM LAYERS YOU CAN TAKE OFF, gloves or ear warmers, etc. it’ll be extra cold before sunrise
-a spare pair of socks (not sure how wet the trail will be but there’s a bunch of little streams. better safe than sorry?)
-the ability to hike in peaceful silence
Let me know if you have any questions. If you need to withdraw after the deadline, you have to TEXT me (8478630008), don’t email.
TL;dr some of the songs on Andrew Bird’s last album though? unreal. Left Handed Kisses is a jam.
