Description

Graduate Outdoor Adventures: Billy Goat Trail Hike

Saturday, Sept. 28, 2019, 7:45am-4:00pm
Meet at Skyline Fitness Center 30 minutes prior to event begin time.

There are three sections to the Billy Goat Trail (A,B,and C) which will give us access to the C&O Canal tow path and beautiful views of the Potomac. There are many variations to this hike so distance can change based on weather conditions and group mood, but plan on an approximately 9 mile hike. The trail has very few hills, but can be quite rugged along Section A along the riverside cliffs.

Due to limited capacity and expected demand, we ask that you register for the event only if you are sure that you will be able to attend and participate. Please see our cancellation and waitlist policy on the Graduate Life Outdoor Adventures webpage.

What to wear: weather appropriate clothing and good walking or hiking shoes (closed-toed sneakers or boots)

What to bring: a daypack containing ID, 2 water bottles, lunch, sunscreen, rain jacket and any other layers you might need

When/Where: Meet at Skyline Fitness Center on the Fairfax Campus at 7:45am. We will drive to the trail, hike, eat lunch along the trail, and return to campus around 4:00pm.

Registration begins September 3. There are limited spaces on this trip.

If you have any questions, please contact Sydney Glass at sglass6@gmu.edu.
