Long Flat Hikes – Pocahontas State Park (Day Hike, 14 Miles, Challenging)

  1. JoeGiasullo 9 months ago

    I will be hiking with you guys on Saturday, staying the night at a campsite, then kayaking on Sunday. Good peeps, exercise, outdoor fun….and no yard work….Is a better weekend possible? ::Kevin McAlister voice:: “I don’t think so!”

    I won’t be camping, have a park pass, but might have a dog in the back seat. She’s sweet, so if you’re a dog person, you could sit with her.

    Hi all
    Just a reminder – this is not a camping trip – staying in the park is strickly optional (non CVT) and each on their own for reservations.
    I will have my kayak inside my SUV so while meeting at the Food Lion, I will not have room for carpoolers, as well as I am staying.

    Hi Leigh, I can carpool with you from Short Pump if you are planning on coming back right after the hike. Let know where we can meet and what time. Thanks.

      Hi Merva long time no see.
      Let’s meet at the Macy’s lot in short pump at 8AM. Anyone else interested? I can carry 3 people plus myself.
      I do plan on coming straight back after the hike.
      See you Saturday

        I’d like to join you if I may. I can meet you in the Macy’s parking lot at 8 a.m. Thank you.

    Please do join in the carpool.
    Look at CVT reducing it’s carbon footprint ??

    Hey all
    Hope you had a good hike.
    I think this needs to be a yearly event for backpack training.

    • Chris M. 8 months ago

      thanks for setting this one up. Next, I’ll try better to not get volun-told about other plans and make a night of it.

      As far as yearly? how about monthly or bi-montlhy.

    hope the blisters get better. It was a good 30 minutes telling stories while we walked back. You still did 12 miles even though we shaved about a mile off.

    Great idea.
    I will do this 4x a year so we are always in backpack practice.
    Will do the extra 1.x segment to get to a true 14 miles with backpacks.
    We can stream cross in WINTER!
    next trip: November (since Oct full), then Feb, then May, then August, then Nov 2020
    be there OR be square (shaped)
    be on the look out for a better name and a better meme!
    BTW, my trail name is Jackel
