  • Bearfence Mountain Trailhead, Skyline Drive, Elkton, VA, USA


On the fifth day of shredmas Zach Hicks gave to me a bearfence sunrise, four alpine draws, three 23’s, two biking gloves, and a gnartridge in a pear tree..

Bearfence is a pretty easy hike so it should be good for all levels but don’t trust me, trust the hiking project: https://www.hikingproject.com/trail/7011923/bearfence-loop-trail

You get priority off the waitlist if you’re driving or have an SNP pass.

~ Drivers ~
We love your car (driving ability) and the club pays for gas and 50% tip up to $20 if you drive! If you are driving, you gotta show up with a full tank of gas or it will be sad times in the neighborhood.

~ about Shredmas ~
Twas the night before Shredmas and all through the Grounds
Not a student was studying, they were all out of town
They were hiking, trail running, and climbing on rocks
All while wearing their best SmartWool socks

The students were ready to get out and shred,
While each had a headlamp worn bright on their head.
For 12 days of magic they continued to send
And wished that Shredmas wouldn’t come to an end.

But alas, all too soon, it was the very last day,
But the good news was Moab is just two months away!
So remember this, and don’t feel too hurt—
I wish you all a good life full of peace, love, and dirt.
