Drive to Franklin Park off of business Rt 7 just west of Purcellville and just east of Round Hill - 17501 Franklin Park Drive Purcellville Va
Enter the park, drive up the hill and on your right is the parking area, we can re-convene there.
The park has a 3 mile very pleasant path that goes around the perimeter of the park, it is not paved but that is about the extent of the "trail-ish ness" of it - one loop for a 3 mile walk or 2 for a six mile run or something in between - its your choice.
After about an hour or so of "activity" we head up to Bear Chase Brewery for a little refreshment. The Brewery is about another 10 min up RT 7 west of the Park just off of rt 601. They open at 11:00.
If you prefer the Appalachian Trail - this is the hike part - the Brewery is just beyond a parking area that is off Rt 7 the Trail will lead you you to Maine or Georgia - Its your choice.... or perhaps either Ravens Rock or Bear's Den Overlook if you'd rather be back in time for a beer.
Location Franklin Park West of Purcellville, then Bear Chase Brewery in Bluemont
Car Pool option to meet at North Point Village Center at 08:30 - otherwise drive to Franklin Park. Please sign up so we know how many to expect: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/20f0b4babae2ba0fb6-memorial1
