Gibson Hollow Hike

Sunday, December 7th 2014 - 10:00 am - 3:00 pm

The Woods of Madison County
Sunday, December 7 2014

Celebrate the upcoming Winter and Solstice Season with a moderate 4-5 mile loop hike in a beautiful part of Shenandoah National Park (SNP).

We’ll be hiking in the Madison County part of SNP near the popular White Oak Canyon and Old Rag Mountain areas.  But this wild forested area is not often open to the public because the trailheads are accessible only through private land. For this outing we have permission from a Wild Virginia member to drive onto their property to get to a key trailhead.  As we walk on the lightly traveled trails, we will see mountain laurel, large oaks, take in a view of Hawksbill Peak (the highest point in SNP), rock hop across pristine streams and hug (if you want to) several old tulip poplar trees 16-21 feet in circumference.

After the hike and time permitting we’ll gather afterwards around either a woodstove or campfire and enjoy hot cider, chocolate, tea, and snacks. This outing is limited to 12 people.

The hike will begin at 10:00am from the trailhead. The trailhead is approximately a one hour drive north from Charlottesville. If there is enough interest, there may be a carpool or two organized from Charlottesville.  Contact Eric Gilchrist at ericgrv@gmail.com for reservations and directions.
