Powhatan Wildlife Management Area

Sometimes we want to hike in the woods, but don’t want to drive 2+ hours. Sometimes we don’t want to get up early. This is a series of hikes that are not too far and not too close; not too long and not too short. We call them ‘Modest Ambles’.

For this hike, we’ll explore Powhatan Wildlife Management Area off of Route 60.

Since these are shorter hikes let’s combine them with visits to local wineries for tastings and bon vivanterie.  Skippers Creek Vineyards is a few minutes away and tastings are available ($5).

Suggest we stop at Four Seasons Restaurant for lunch and then the winery for those that are interested. This is not a carpool hike, but the trailhead is not easy to find which is why we are meeting close to location at Sheetz.  Also there are no ‘facilities’ at the WMA so might want a pit stop.
