GITy Up! 2015: Scouting Trip to Tunnel Hill

on Mon, 08/31/2015 - 17:12

I drove down to Vienna with my brother-in-law Rod August 25-26 to scout Tunnel Hill State Trail for GITy Up this October. TforI supporter Jonathan Voelz guided us on Tuesday and watched the vehicle at his house as we camped near the trail's intersection with the River to River hiking trail. The surface is really good, shade is fantastic, beautiful views and fun places to visit. Plus, hello, wineries! It's going to be a great tour! Register:
