Join in New Year’s day hike at Cacapon

By Staff | Dec 26, 2014

The Potomac Valley Audubon Society invites its members and friends to join a New Year’s Day hike at Cacapon State Park in Morgan County.

The hike is being sponsored by the park, and it will be led by the Park’s Naturalist, Renee Fincham.

Participants will gather at 10 a.m. at the Park’s Nature Center. The hike will follow the Park’s Ridge Trail, which is about 1.5 miles long with a few hills.

The hike will be free and no pre-registration is required.

Anyone who wishes to carpool to the park from Jefferson or Berkeley counties can meet up with Clark Dixon and Debbie Maiorano of PVAS at the Food Lion parking lot in Inwood at 8:30 a.m. The Food Lion is located at 4803 Gerrardstown Road, just off I-81.

Participants should wear comfortable footware, dress for cold weather, and bring water.

After the hike, the PVAS group will proceed to the Park’s Lodge and those who choose can purchase lunch at the restaurant before heading home.

Those who plan to carpool with PVAS are encouraged to register on the PVAS website at www.potomacaudubon.org so that Debbie and Clark will know how many car poolers to expect.
