Annual Fall Foliage Run - 5 Nov (NOVA)

First, this is an event sponsored by a local off roading club I belong to in Northern Virginia - OCC. Given that it's an OCC event, please let me know if you are coming and I'll add you to the signup database. They have some basic requirements for attending events, like having safety and recovery gear, filling out a medical form and signing a waiver. See http://offcambercrawlers.com for more info.

If you have club phobia or some other issues with this, then by all means don't come, but if you want to start a discussion about this then start a new thread in misc chit chat instead of doing it here. Sorry, had to be said.

Here is the announcement posted for the event:

Quote:
Come out and enjoy the fall colors in George Washington National Forrest. This annual event is perfect for the whole family on stocker friendly trails. Our plan is to hit the trails west of Harrisonburg VA heading toward Flagpole Knob with a stop for pictures and lunch at the big clearing. Then we will head to Spruce Knob (?) or whatever the name of the location of the old lookout tower. From there you can see for miles into West Virginia and Virginia. The view is spectacular in clear weather.

But wait! That's not all. For those with more time and desire, we will head from Harrisonburg to Peter's Mill. This trail is on the east side of the Shenandoah Valley off Tasker's Gap near Edinburg (sp?) Va.

So take advantage of this opportunity and sign up ASAP. The database is waiting for you.

Details:
Date: November 5th
Trails: Flagpole (north to south); Peter's Mill (south to north)
Trail rating: GREEN with a couple of fun areas to play on
Driver's Meeting: 9am; Sheetz in Harrisonburg

NOTE: There was 2 inches of snow this past weekend on Flagpole!!!

Hey Charles - Caitlin and I would like to come. Count us in. I assume I can get details on the waiver, etc, on the OCC site? Jeff

What he has listed as Spruce Knob is actually Reddish Knob.

Be a lot of traffic in the Harrisonburg area that weekend, both on the trails and in the area of Reddish Knob. It's hunting season and that's the first day of muzzelloader. So you'll see a lot of hunters and hunt camps off the trails. Reddish Knob is a tourist trap when the leaves are changing, one-way in and one-way out on that narrow road.

Also note that Peter's Mill has a fee now. It's $5.00 a day. Cash. It's on the honor system - you drop your money in an envelope and tear off a ticket to display in your windshield. If you're caught with no ticket, or if you do not put money in the envelope and you're caught, it's a $50.00+ fine.

Thanks for the heads up.

Is this any different from the "pass" we usually buy at a local gas station before going in? I think it was $5 so I assume the same. It's been that way for years.

Same thing as the pass. You can either buy the pass or put your money in the "mailbox". I have not been there since they put up the mailbox, but I was told it's now there at the trail head. Might confirm that with someone who has been there in the last 6 months.
