This week’s Hospital Rock Loop hike begins with a complication. Jones Gap State Park has implemented a reserved parking procedure for Fridays through Sundays. I have reserved for us the last 4 remaining parking spaces for Friday. This means that Friday’s hikers will need to have received their COVID vaccination and feel comfortable carpooling. Additionally, there is a $6 per person entry fee to the park.
What this means for us is that I need to know by late tomorrow if you plan to do Friday’s hike, so we can make sure everyone is accommodated. We will meet at 8 a.m. at the Cedar Mountain Community Center parking area for a 9 a.m. hike start. If you plan to hike, but will be going a direction other than 276, please let me know in your response.
So, Friday’s hike is Hospital Rock Loop. Carpooling required. $6 admission. Meeting at Cedar Mountain at 8 a.m. Please RSVP.
Mostly cloudy skies. High 63F. Winds SSW at 5 to 10 mph.
On another note, Vince has posted on the website a few photos of recent Hoofer hikes. Take a peek.
