News and progress along the Potomac Heritage National Scenic Trail
Join “Walk On” Ray Smith June 4 on a highly scenic 7- or 10-mile hike through areas not normally open to the public (see photos). Echoing the original Cross County Hikes, the event is intended to suggest scenic and historically-significant ways to fill gaps in the better known PHNST trail areas. Both options include the remote Accotink Bay Wildlife Refuge. The 10-miler also includes (1) historic Arcadia Farms, (2) a mix of wooded and built-up areas on the Base, and (3) researcher/author Greg Wilson who will provide glimpses into the area’s rich history that he has documented extensively (www.civilWarQuakerScout.com).
Park at Lorton VRE Parking Lot (southeast corner, nearest Lorton Town Center) 9000 Lorton Station Blvd--the hike finish point. Ride a free NPS- provided shuttle to each hike’s start point. Bottled water and maps provided.
