Tuesday Morning Community Walk
August 16, 2022 @ 8:30 am - 11:30 am
New River Trail State Park, 208 E Stuart Dr, Galax, VA
Enjoy a brisk fitness walk on the New River Trail. Gather at the restroom area just beyond the caboose for a fast-paced fitness walk led by VA State Park volunteer interpretive guide, Jae Furman.
The walk goes to the Cliffview ranger station and back for a total of four miles along Chestnut Creek. The mostly shaded, crushed-stone trail is 12-feet wide with almost no elevation change. You are welcome to walk less by turning back at any point. Participants finishing the walk will receive a free day pass for the Galax Recreation Center (think pool, gym, etc.!). Please note that there is a $7 fee for parking in State Park lots unless you have an annual pass. Rainfall will cancel the walk in most cases. The group size will be limited to 12 and pre-registration will be required. To register, please visit www.sweetmountainways.wixsite.com/visit
