Back in the winter significant trail work was done on the Wilhite Wagon Trail and the portion of Doubletop Mountain Trail that goes from the top of the Wilhite Mountain trail to SR 648. The purpose of this trip is to reblaze the trail and get blowdowns off Doubletop Mountain Trail from SR 648 to the top of Doubletop Mountain. The effort to improve this trail has been coordinated with VA DGIF. No trail experience needed to participate. Just bring gloves, long pants, lunch, and plenty of water.

If you plan on participating, please send me an emal at We may also be able to make carpool arrangements from near the DC metro area.


Update:  Joseph Ferdinandsen who manages the Rapidan WMA for DGIF will be joining us for this outing!
