Is it just me or is it hot as sh**??? I know we’re all stoked to be back at UVA and all, but we can spare a few hours and a little bit of FOMO to escape the relentless urban heat island that is cville and ease our torrid, sticky bodies into the cool clear mountain water of the Moormans River. This satisfying dip will be preceded by a magical two-ish-mile jaunt up Sugar Hollow to the delightful and dainty waterfall pictured in this adventure’s cover photo!

All said and done, we’ll do ~4.8 miles of pretty mellow hiking at whatever pace all attendees are comfortable with, cool off in the river (which is directly adjacent to the trail) as many times as we see fit, lament in the fact that we can finally come together in this manner after a year of COVID restrictions, and make it back home with plenty of time for Saturday evening shenanigans in hooville!

There are a couple stream crossings, so wear waterproof hiking sandals (Chacos, Tevas, etc.) if you have them. No worries if you don’t, I’ve taken my shoes off and done the stream crossings barefoot many a time!
