Join Graduate Student Life and Outdoor Adventures on Sunday, October 17 for our Billy Goat Trail Hike! There are three sections to the Billy Goat Trail (A,B,and C) which will give us access to the C&O Canal tow path and beautiful views of the Potomac. There are many variations to this hike so distance can change based on weather conditions and group mood, but plan on an approximately 9 mile hike. The trail has very few hills, but can be quite rugged along Section A along the riverside cliffs.

Cost: Free
What to wear: Weather appropriate clothing and good walking or hiking shoes (closed-toed sneakers or boots)
What to bring: a daypack containing ID, 2 water bottles, lunch, sunscreen, rain jacket and any other layers you might need
When/Where: Meet at Skyline Fitness Center on the Fairfax Campus at 10am. We will drive to the trail, hike, eat lunch along the trail, and return to campus around 3-4pm.
Registration: Registration opens on October 4 and closes October 12 at noon.
