We’ll be hiking through some of this rugged and steep land that ranges in elevation from 1,600 feet to 4,282 feet. Ramsey’s Draft became a national wilderness area back in 1984, or 30 years ago, and is the closet to Washington DC. Time to celebrate again!

This outing is an almost complete circuit hike of 6.8 miles starting on the Shenandoah Mountain Trail to Jerry’s Run and finishing on Ramsey’s Draft Trail. Most of the hike is a descent from the mountain pass down into the draft.

Remember to dress appropriately for this summer hike. The weather is so unpredictable these days. Bring water, lunch, snacks, and any other items for your own personal safety and health. We will be crossing the draft several times during the last 2 miles so please be prepared to wade in the water in either your hiking boots or some sort of footwear that you can change into quickly.

Sign up soon, because the group size is limited to 10.
