Hike and Meditation at Big Devils Stairs
Saturday October 13, 8am - 2pm
@ Shenandoah National Park
We’ll hike to Big Devils Stairs in Shenandoah National Park. This is a 5.5 mile out and back hike, pleasant and generally not too demanding, and we won’t be in a hurry. In the last half mile before we reach the gorge and overlooks, we’ll pass through an especially lovely landscape of mountain laurel, hemlock, pines, and rocks and boulders.
