Jon Wolz is leading the Frostbite Hike on Saturday, December 9, beginning at 10:30. We will be meeting at the Great Falls Tavern.
The hike will begin by walking up a hill behind lock 19 where participants will be treated to scenic views of the canal and Potomac River.  We will walk along the ridge line and then back down the hill where we will cross over the canal at the stop gate just above lock 16. We will walk down to lock 16 to view the lock and the etchings on a coping stone that read, “J.W. Fisher, Jr.” and “W. Spong”. We will walk back up the towpath to the trail that leads to the Great Falls overlook. Then we will walk back to the Great Falls Tavern.
There will be a few spots where a walking stick will be useful.  Attendees should dress for the weather. The total length of the hike is 3 ½ miles.
Please sign up in advance with Jon at [email protected] or at 240-888-5367.
