WV Sierra Club Hike and Picnic

Join the West Virginia Sierra Club Hike and Picnic on June 10 at the Grandview Shelter #4 in the New River Gorge National Park. They’ll grill up some summertime favorites, admire the spectacular views, learn about the park, hear some music, and meet up with other West Virginians who care about protecting The Mountain State’s natural beauty.

At 10:00 AM, Chris Craig will lead a moderate 2-mile hike. At 12:00, you’ll gather at the shelter and dig into burgers, hot dogs, and all the fixings. After you eat, you’ll hear a brief description of the area’s history. Next, Chris will lead an easy 2.5 mile hike. You’ll also enjoy musical entertainment and games for the whole family. They will wrap up the day around 5:00 PM.

The West Virginia Sierra Club will provide all perishable foods. Please bring a non-perishable side item or alcohol-free beverage to share.

If you’re traveling from a distance, you’ll find several hotels, cabins, and an RV park in the area. A developed campground is available nearby at Little Beaver State Park, and several primitive campgrounds are scattered throughout New River Gorge National Park.

More information about the hike, and a signup sheet, are available here.
