Hike: AT: Trillium Hike / G. Richard Thompson WMA / Sky Meadows State Park, VA
We are blessed! One of the most spectacular displays of blooming trillium in the world is right in our own backyard – a short bus ride away on a nearby stretch of the Appalachian Trail.

About the Event
$26. Long hike: 11½ mi., 2700 ft. ascent, 2600 ft. descent. Moderate hike: 8½ mi., 1400 ft. ascent, 2400 ft. descent.
We’ll make our annual pilgrimage to the floral extravaganza today. Long hikers reach the blossoms with a northbound jaunt on the AT from Manassas Gap (near I-66), and moderate hikers from the Upper Ted Lake parking area in the G. Richard Thompson Wildlife Management Area. The AT takes both hikes to their finish at Sky Meadows State Park.
