Join us on Saturday, March 2, for our first official chapter hike in 2024! The sunshine and warmer temps are enticing us to the Blue Ridge mountains, where we will hike the Albright Loop trail along the Blue Ridge Parkway.

This 3.6 mile loop trail is rated easy, with 675 of elevation climb, and some lovely views to reward our efforts. Parking at the trailhead is limited, so we will meet at 10 am at the Humpback Rocks visitor center and Mountain Farm, located .2 miles from the trailhead. The visitor center is located at milepost 5.8 on the Blue Ridge Parkway, Waynesboro.

We plan to hold a shell ceremony & pilgrim blessing just prior to starting our hike, so please arrive promptly at 10am. Please let us know if you are walking a Camino this year for the first time. After the hike, we will enjoy a social time at Blue Mountain Brewery located at 9519 Critzers Shop Road in Afton, VA.
